Scraggle Scarf (Blanket) – Free Knitting Pattern for Beginners
It has been on my mind to make an “easy” level knitting project that would suit a bunch of people in a bunch of different situations. My mind always goes back to the times I sat beside in the hospital, feeling comforted by my hands working a steady rhythm on the needles. There are times in your life that knitting is just the right thing to do; in my life they have been holidays, illness, plane and car trips, forced rest due to injury, pregnancy downtime, emotional healing, hospital vigils, sunny days on the beach relaxing, cafe chilling, Sunday slow days… and now there is our new norms; LOCKDOWN and QUARANTINE… knitting is something to do in quarantine!
So please allow me to introduce you to my multipurpose pattern; the Scraggle Scarf (knee warming blanket for older or less mobile friends, baby blanket for our new arrivals). It plays with three colours AND if you are scarfing it, you don’t even have to sew in the ends yay!
Pattern Level: Beginner – Learn to Knit
Estimated Knit Time: 4 to 10 hours
