As much as I'm a newbie to knitting I am already pretty much set in my ways too. That means, I like to knit the kinds of things that have proven to be easy and rewarding. In other words, anything scarf-shaped with thick needles.
Linie 313 Valparaiso Yarn (80% Acryl, 10% Mohair, 10% Wool / 100g - 70m / 3,5oz - 76yds)
Size 15 needles (US size 19)
This loop scarf is finished in practically no time. I cast on 15 stitches then knitted in what I already consider my favorite pattern, namely Seed Stitch (aka Pearl Stitch) until I used up the whole skein of yarn. For more detailed instructions check out my last Yarn Tales post.
Chunky loop scarf
20cm/8in width and 60cm/24in circumference
And you can rest assured this won't be the last scarf I knitted with this particular yarn. Just too darn pretty! Needless to say, a couple of the other available colors are already on my wishlist too.
Do you love knitting scarfs as much as I do?
