Very first FO
Well, it is pretty basic, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out

Best wishes,

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!

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

Best wishes,

Ginger

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.
