Do you want to learn how to knit scarf, but don’t know the basic steps needed to do that? Then you are in luck because this article is going to tell you the basic steps that will allow anyone to knit a scarf for the first time without a lot of problems.

Here are the basic steps you need to know, remember and use to make knitting your first scarf a much easier and more enjoyable project.

One: First take time to do some research on knitting so that you understand knitting terms. If you don’t understand these terms than learning how to knit can be difficult. There are many online sites, guides and other ways to learn important information about knitting that will make it easy for you to understand these next steps.

Two: Choose the yarn that you want to use to knit the scarf. There are so many different kinds of yarn available these days that finding the one you want to use can seem like a daunting task.

For making a scarf it is a good idea to use midweight, sport-weight or four-ply worsted yarn. You want to get about six ounces of yarn and make sure you have enough knitting needles, usually 8 is what is needed. If you don’t want a fringe on your scarf, then you will need to get extra yarn to finish it.

Three: You want to start by casting 24 stitches. Always make a simple garter stitch until you have reached the end of the row, then repeat the process on the next row. Just keep repeating this until you have the scarf the length that you want it to be.

Then you want to cast off the knitting and tie it off. If the ends of the scarf are intended to be plain, then you have just completed your first scarf. Otherwise you will need to learn how to add fringe to your scarf. Adding fringe to the scarf is not hard to do, but it will require a little time to get it right.

With these basic steps for how to knit scarf, you will find it much simpler to complete your project. Just remember that understanding knitting terms is important and taking your time is even more important. These two things will ensure your scarf turns out good the first time you try knitting one and gets better each time after the first one.

Summary: Do you want to learn how to knit scarf, but don’t know the basic steps needed to do that? Then you are in luck because this article is going to tell you the basic steps that will allow anyone to knit a scarf for the first time without a lot of problems.
