I've been meaning to get into knitting. Maybe I'll try one of these projects since they look perfect for beginners!

I almost can't believe how easy this knitting pattern is. It's even easy enough for a beginner like me, though I'm sure it will take me more than 2 hours.

Does anyone have any suggestions for other colors? I noticed one of the colors has been discontinued.

I LOVE this scarf. It's so versatile, and it doesn't take all year for me to finish it. I've already knit up two of these for myself. I guess I can now officially start making them for other people )

Love this scarf and, as a beginner, I'm finding it super easy - but it's surprisingly SLOW for me . . . because of my beginner status??? I'm thinking the 2-hour scarf will end up being a 2 week scarf (I put in 2 or 3 hours a day on the weekend and and hour or so on weeknights . . . ) Ha ha. Think it will be SO worth it, though!

Perfect pattern for a beginner, easy and quick. I would also suggest not adding any fringe for a man's scarf.

For knitters having trouble with any stitch or knitting process (casting on, binding off, increasing, decreasing, etc.): There are YouTube videos of just about EVERYthing you could want to know about knitting, including the Sashay ruffled scarf pattern! Happy knitting!

Love this knit two hours or less scarf. I crocheted one similar to this , in that it crosses over to side. Neither of these pictures show using a pin/brooch to keep together but I suppose that is the idea. With mine, I have been wearing it with ends hanging down and have gotten compliments because it is short (with fringe about to waist) and it makes just a good neck warmer . I think I will try this knitted one, especially since it is so quick to do. love and prayers

I would like the knitting pattern on the wrapper of Sashay yarn. Can I get this pattern on mt computer? Thank You.

Have you tried getting the pattern number off of the wrapper and searching for it? love and prayers

Probably-look up sashay yarn and patterns for this yarn on that website-they usually publish the patterns from the labels to the web site first. I think Sashay is Red heart-go to the Red heart site and click on the yarn, scroll to the bottom of the info and there is an option to see patterns for the yarn-click through those until you find what you are looking for.

I'm looking for a scarf pattern using Starbella yarn. Can I get pattern thru computer?

yes, look up Starbella on the web site of the manufacturer and find the patterns through that.

I would like the knitting pattern for the scarf shown on the wrapper of Premier Yarns/Starbella flash. Can I get the pattern on my computer?

I am looking for a scraf pattern for ruffles. I have a pattern but do not care for it. I need pictures and another pattern. Thank You.

New to knitting. What does it mean to bind off...then when finishing, to weave in the ends? Thanks for your help.

@dontsendmeyourspam 9245852, Here is a link to some helpful tutorials on our site that help explain what it means to bind off: I hope this helps! --editors of FaveCrafts

hi im looking for the same information did you find out shirley

go to start and go to search and type in how to bind off knitting and click on search there will be several places to check binging off hope this hleps.. shirley

Bind off is just another way to say cast off, weaving in ends simply means to sew in the ends by weaving them back and forth on a wrong, same as any other knit project. Hope this helps someone, happy knitting.

wrong side not wrong

Hi, ardela58 1951181. If you ever have specific questions about a pattern, I would recommend contacting the pattern designer directly (specified in the byline). In this case, it is Lion Brand Yarn Company. You can contact them here: Good luck! --Editors of FaveCrafts

l've been knitting 4 a while, and i want 2 learn how 2 do the twisty pattern (like on sweaters) can u please teach me from the website? thanx

Honestly, that is an advanced technique that you have not quite developed the skills for or at least you hadn't when you wrote this comment. If you feel you have the skills to give it a go now and have not already learned it, my best suggestion is to look up tutorials or youtube videos, as I mentioned it is an advanced technique that is easier to see to learn than following written directions.

I am new to knitting, can anyone tell me how many skeins of each color are needed for this pattern? Thank you,,,,Cathy

As specified in the pattern, you need 1 skein of each color or 180 yards of 3 different colors. this is a triple stranded pattern, so you are knitting with 1 strand of each color at a time.

Garter stitch means that you knit each row - back and forth -- no purl stitches.

How do you knitt a garter stitch. I am new are this. Thans.

Garter stitch is knit each stitch every row to the specified length.

i done this idea for my neice and sister-in-law, they loved them and now im getting other people asking me to make them one, only thing is i worry about is, im going to run out of wool.... haha!! thanx again.

Great to knit so quick ideal for me to teach my grandaugher, thanks
