My husband and I have been Amazon Prime members for years. We order all of our household supplies, gifts, crochet supplies and even some food items from Amazon. We wouldn’t be able to save money if we had to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on eligible Prime items plus a ton of other perks such as free movie and TV show streaming and free music streaming.
If you’ve been thinking about getting an Amazon Prime membership, how about you start with a free 30-day trial on me? It’s the least I can do for your support!

Easy Knit Scarf for Beginners – Tutorial with Brittany
This tutorial is also available in a left handed version. Click the link below to be directed to the left handed video on my YouTube channel.
Row 1 (RS): K all stitches
Row 2 (WS): K first st. *K1, P1. Rep from * to last st. K last st.
Rep rows 1 and 2 until your work measures approximately 34″ long from cast on edge. Work your bind off on a right side row.
Add the Pompoms!
Use the cast on and bind off tails to weave in and out of each stitch to gather the two ends.
Leave the tail once you have gathered up the end – we’ll come back to that later.
Use the pompom tails to sew it onto the gathered edge.
Tie the tails on the back and trim.
