I am making 4 scarves as a gift. I have crocheted in the past but I decided to learn how to knit for these!
I watched some videos on YouTube and started knitting the scarves which what I found out later to be a stockinette stitch. Thankfully, I decided to google it and ended up here where I found that the stitch likes to curl. So I went back out on my search again and found this: Sorcerer’s Stone/Philosopher’s Stone Style Hogwarts Scarves
This is exactly what I am looking for style wise (see pictures here). Not concerned with the bottom fringe, really.
From some videos I have watched it looks like I would basically be knitting a stockinette stitch but on a circular double ended needle. Is that right?
I have no idea how to read patterns yet so I just watch videos. I thought I would be alright but I am worried I will be misreading the pattern. I see this “Gauge: 20 sts and 24 rows per 4” (10 cm)" and even though I searched the forum here and found a video on it, I am still not quite sure what it means… like how I would knit differently to fit that? If that makes any sense?
I understand casting on 70 stitches, as I learned that with my regular knitting needles. Then “knit in the round for 22 rows” just sounds like I knit in a circle with the basic stockinette stitch for 22 rows?
I still have to learn how to switch to different colors, but I am sure there are plenty of videos for that.
Any help you offer would be appreciated. I am so glad I found this site
