The first scarf I knitted 


I read on Reddit that a good beginner site was Row House and for me it was perfect. 

I chose my first project ever, following a simple pattern. I chose to do the stockinette stitch scarf. 

I chose a cheap acrylic yarn because I was still learning. As I work through this scarf, which took a couple weeks, I learned a little about wools and yarns from a friend of mine who is an experienced knitter. 

Then I did my own research but this exercise for me wasn’t about the quality of the piece. It was purely a learning experience. An opportunity for growth. 


I used what I learned to make this cute little scarf. It has a border.


I made a few mistakes along the way. And I learned a lot during this project. I learned how to correct my mistakes.

And the scarf kept getting longer and longer. The yard is the type that changes from color to color so it became interesting to knit. I was looking forward to seeing what the next color would be and what the finished product would look like. It kept me going.


The yarn was called Bernat pop! In color Ebony and Ivory.


And so after a couple of weeks I completed my very first project. A scarf! I think a scarf is a perfect project for a beginner. Because it helps you to learn the stitches over and over again. And it seals in that knowledge!

  1. Lovely scarf. I like the striping on the yarn, and you’ve developed some good stitch definition already. I should disclose that it was actually a whole year before I learned how to purl, so almost all my first projects that first year were garter stitch. But I got pretty good at it! Seed stitch and moss stitch are also great to learn if you want a project with a little texture. This site, http://www.knittinghelp.com/ , was incredibly useful when I first learned how to knit, and there are countless videos on YouTube showing all different sorts of techniques and tutorials if you are looking to learn visually. Just type in what you want to learn in its search bar.
