Autumn is here and we definitely are in the mood to knit more. For knitters is like spring cleaning. We always go through our stash and try to organise it in order to make room for more yarn. This October I promised myself I will not buy more yarn until I use all my previous purchases.
So, in order to make some more space for new creations, I shared some items that I still had in this post on the Facebook Page. Look them up, you might find something you like.
Browsing my yarn stash I found two lovely colour, light green and peach and use them to make this simple, but very cute scarf.
Here is the free pattern:
Materials & Info
Yarn: aprox. 200m (218 yards) + yarn for 2 pompoms
Gauge: 16st/20 rows = 10cm/10cm (4in)
Needles: 6mm (US 10)

The Easy Garter Stitch Pattern a simple and fast knit, with basic knitting stitches. Very easy for beginners as well.
Gauge is not crucial, but please keep in mind that the finished measurements will be different with a different gauge.
This pattern can be worked with any yarn with the appropriate needles. This way, you can make it your desired length.
The Scarf is knitted in one piece, and you sew the pom pom’s at the end.
CO 4 st and follow the pattern bellow.
Row 1: K all
Row 2: Sl1, Kf&b, Kf&b, K1
Row 3: Sl1, Kall
Row 4: Sl1, k1, M1R, K to last 2 st, M1L, K2

Repeat row 4 and 5 until you have 26 st on the needle.
Next, K every row, starting each row with Sl1 st, until you have the desired length.
For finishing, work the decreasing rows as follows:
Row 1: Sl1, K1, SSK, K to last 4 st, K2tog, K2
Row 2: Sl1, Kall
Repeat row 1 & 2 until you have 6 st left and work the last 2 rows as bellow:
Row 1: Sl1, SSK, K2tog, K1

Make 2 pom pom’s and attach them to each corner of your scarf and snuggle away.
