EASY Child's Scarf pattern?
I am a TOTAL newbie knitter. I know how to cast on and do the knit and purl stitch. I want to try making my 4 year old a scarf. I really don't want to do just the knit stitch, I need the most practice at the purl stitch. So I'd like something with a combo of each, but EASY. Does anyone know of a good pattern for me? THANKS!

It's the Yarn Harlot to the rescue!

I like this one. Scroll to the October 12 entry. Mine's in purple, and it's springy and scrunchy and it knits fast and I LOVE it!

Hi Eileen -
If you want something TOTALLY easy, try this one I did last year for my four year old daughter, who loved the soft, fuzziness of the yarn and the light purple color.

I used Lion Brand Velvet Spun yarn in lavender color. I liked this yarn as a beginner because it doesn't split. I think I used size 9 needles, and cast on 9 stitches (you can go more or less for a wider/thinner scarf, just be sure it's an odd number of stitches cast on.)
Then K1, P1 to the end of the row.
Next row, also do K1, P1.
Continue until the scarf is about45 inches long (or however long your daughter wants it to be). This scarf, like most of the others I've done now, will stretch with wear.

This is the seed stitch, which lies flat, and to my beginner eye looks like it's more complicated than it really is, and better than garter stitch (K only).

The only caution I'd have is don't try to put a fringe on the ends of the scarf because the yarn unravels and sheds.

Hm, this is my first post. I'll try uploading a photo.

Good luck!

Thanks! Sure, I'll give the knit along a whirl! Can't make any promises as this will be my first first knitted item ever! But I'll try. I'm off to post to your thread.
