Knitting is a great hobby to get into. It’s meditative and creative at the same time, you can be as simple as you’d like or get really complex (we’re talking ‘homemade’ chunky knits!). It’s a great skill to have in your back pocket, here we’re showing you exactly how to get started with an easy scarf:
1. PICK YOUR YARN
*When you buy your yarn it will suggest which needle size to use as well
2. CASTING ON
*Tie a knot then loop it around your needle
*Wrap the yarn around the back of your thumb & forefinger
*Thread the needle under & back through the loop, pull tightly!
*Repeat 8-15 time depending on how wide you want the scarf
4. START KNITTING
*Stick the 2nd needle through the top loop & under the first needle
*Wrap the yarn around the second needle
*Pull & catch the stitch, then slide the loop off the first needle
5. CASTING OFF
*Insert the needle into the loop under the first needle, pull it onto the second
*Pull next loop onto the second needle, pull the first loop over the second, and off!
*Repeat until all loops are gone
*Trim yarn, leaving an inch (then hide remaining string)
