PURE GARTER STITCH PURE SIMPLICITY
The perfect pattern for a first knitting project, quick gift, or when you just want to relax with an easy project…
MATERIALS NEEDED (available separately or as a kit in my shop or at www.plyarn.com).
~2 Skeins* of PLYarn’s Single Bulky in your choice of color. (Each skein is approximately 76 yd/70 m)
~US 11 (8 mm) Knitting Needles
~A Tapestry (or Yarn) Needle
*If you wish to make and extra long version or add fringe, you will need 3 skeins.
SKILLS NEEDED & PRACTICED
Cast On, Knit Stitch (for Garter Stitch), Slip Stitch, Cast Off, Weaving In Ends, Blocking.
For 4 x 4 swatch, 11 stitches and 13 rows in Garter Stitch, unblocked. (Or 12 stitches and 9.5 rows, after blocking). Don’t sweat it, gauge for this project is not critical!
Approximate measurements are 6 x 48 inches for this 2 skein scarf, this can be adjusted a bit during blocking. If you use 3 skeins, your scarf will be approximately 6 x 70 inches. Or use the 3rd skein to create a fringe. For a wider, shorter scarf, simply cast on more stitches using the gauge above as a guide.
Beginner, very easy, a great first project.
For more experienced knitters, this is a great "mindless knit" and a very quick knit - great for a quick gift!

A note about color and monitors:
I try hard to make sure my photos capture the color of my items accurately. I also describe the colors in the description for a richer sense of the look of the item. That said, monitors do differ, sometimes brightness is turned up or down and this may account for a difference in the photo and the actual item.
My yarn and fiber is hand dyed individually by me. I don't have "dye lots" in the traditional sense. I do create several skeins at a time which can be used seamlessly in a large project. You will receive matching skeins when you order multiple skeins of the same name in a single order. However, if you order skeins with the same color name at different times, on different days, the skeins may not match exactly. It is a good practice to work rows alternating from 2 balls to even out any color variations if that is the look you desire (this is a good technique to use with all hand dyed yarn). And, as with all yarn, it is best to make sure you purchase enough for your project in the beginning.
Many of my handspun and hand dyed yarns are created "to order". While I have created careful color recipes, each batch of yarn can vary a little from the original photograph. Please be aware that your yarn may not look *exactly* as in the photograph! These variations are an intrinsic part of all hand dyed and handmade items. Rest assured, you are free to return or exchange any item (see refund section above) if you are unhappy for any reason with your purchase. The item just needs to be in original condition. Just let me know asap and I will re-do the yarn, you can choose another or I can refund your payment after I receive the return.
The sheep that supply us with our wool are 100% non-mulesed. We believe that mulesing is a cruel practice to the animals for the benefit of the wool farmer. You can be confident that PLY yarn and fiber is mulesing-free.
Let me know if your order is a gift. I will leave out the invoice and include your personal message to the recipient. Gift wrapping, for a small fee, is also an option at checkout.
Thank you and have a lovely day!!
