The scarf has lace borders, but not too feminine so a guy could also wear it. It’s easy to knit and will be suitable for beginners. Plus, I will also include video tutorials below so anyone can follow with ease We use 2 balls of yarn (50g each), so if you have 100g balls then you only need 1 ball.
Finished Size: approx. 12.5cm width (the length will depend on how many balls of yarn you use) (Please note that this size is made with the needles & yarn specified below, different yarns and needles size will produce different results)
Straight Needles: 7.0 mm
Patons Zhivago Home in 0005 (dye lot #762275)
Not important as it doesn’t need to fit. *Tips* Use big needles if you are just starting out to make it easier.
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

I like to slip my 1st stitches to create a nice even edge on both sides.

Row 4: Slip 1st stitch Purl wise, then P until end of row.

I leave approx 1.2meter of yarn then I start the finishing. You may want to measure your remaining yarn as we all have different tension.
To finish, you need to start on the right side of the fabric (the odd rows). This means you have just finished doing your Purl rows.

Cut any remaining yarn you have left over and weave in ends. The lace border tends to curl up, so block the materials after it’s finished to get a nice flat surface.
Tadaa! you have finished. Happy knitting!
