Well, it is pretty basic, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out :wink:

Best wishes,

Ginger

It may be basic, but it's beautiful nonetheless. Simple can get you a long way--especially when it's a multi-color scarf!

Great job on this first project. I hope there will be many more to come!!

Yep, most of the time it's a successful combination of colours/textures/stitches. And usually a visually rich yarn looks best in a simple stitch. Very well done!

Wonderful scarf! What is the yarn? It looks great just as you've used it, in a simple st pattern.

Thanks for your kind words! The yarn is "I Love This Cotton" #304 Stonewash. Garter stitch on size 8. Cast on 35 and knit until its the length you want :aww:

Best wishes,

Ginger

The scarf is beautiful, with all that color you don't need a fancy pattern !

Very well done! One would never know this is a first project...it looks very professional and is a great match for that denim shirt/jacket.

Very nice! I like it. :) I'm working on my first project (also a scarf), and I can't wait till I can also point a "very first FO" thread. I haven't tried the garter stitch yet since mine is stockinette (I think? still learning the terminology) knit in the round. Love how yours came out!

You did a great job! What are you going to work on next? There are so many wonderful things to knit and crochet! How about some fingerless gloves?
Happy Knitting!

I've been working on the first of at least 2 throw pillow covers. They are a basket weave pattern (so I can train my brain to read a simple pattern). I'll post a picture when I get the first side of the first one completed. The yarn is a nice Wool-Ease Thick & Quick super bulky in oatmeal. The other side, I'll try to do in a similar weight, but in a color blend that pulls in the other colors in the room... the goal is to have them be reversable. If I can't make that work, I'll still have four units that can make two pillows with matching sides.

I'm still pretty slow, so things take time to take on a recognizable form :teehee:
