So, you have your needles, wool, instructions. What do you do next?
That's this years Christmas presents sorted.
Scarves are great.
All you need is 2 or 3 balls, the band on the wool tells you what size needles you need.
Cast on 20 stitches and off you go.
Knit each each row (that's called garter stitch).
If you knit one row then purl the next (that's stocking stitch) your scalf will curl up.
I like knitting with chunky wool and 7mm or bigger needles because it's a lot quicker, I get bored and want to get onto the next lovely wool I have brought.
