Quick and Easy Scarflet

Scarflet
                                                                
A fab quick <1 ball chunky knit project for beginners.

Practice basic stitches and stay snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug all winter!

I designed this quick and easy pattern as a kit to hand out to newbies at our knit and natter night in Sheffield, UK. (https://www.facebook.com/S6KnitNNatter)

1 1.5” button

Gauge:
9 stitches and 20 rows in garter stitch = 10cm using 6.5mm needles

Abbreviations:
K=knit
P= purl

Pattern:
Cast on 26 stitches
Rows 1-14: knit all stitches (14 rows)
Rows 15-24: knit 2 purl 1 rib (10 rows)
