My first post and I do apologise if it has already been asked - still finding my way around the site so please boot me in the right direction if necessary
I have just knitted a really basic but lovely scarf for my daughter from advice given by lady in my local wool shop. K2 P2 every row until desired length reached using Wendy Viva chunky yarn on US size 15 (UK 10mm) needles. Added a fringe to bottom and it looks great.
Now, however they think I can manage some more scarves (and hats) in their Rugby & football team clolours and I'm not so sure about this. What type of yarn, what size needles and more to the point how do I do stripes easily. I know its a basic thing but my confidence in my skills is a bit lacking and I would really appreciate any thoughts/advice you could offer to kick start me into action.
Here is an example of the Wasps Rugby scarf and hats although I can really design any type as long as it has the team colours of Black and gold.
Any advice will be most appreciated.
