Here is a scarf pattern that will help you learn to knit. The explanations of the sample contains a little more detail than a "standard" knitting pattern since it is intended for beginning knitters and all knitters. With each section of the headscarf, you will learn a new technique to put into practice. Since the knitting stitches are varied, each section will produce a different width, which is normal. This "problem" will be resolved when you block the scarf. That said, the sections will all be different from each other and that's what makes the charm of this design.Each section of the scarf is explained in writing and to familiarize you with reading knitting charts, each section is also found at the end of the pattern in chart form. You have the choice to follow one or the other: written instructions or charts. That said, I strongly recommend learning to read the knitting charts as they allow you to visualize rows and, with a little practice, to "understand" the meaning of the pattern.

Well written instructions to learn different knitted stitch patterns in small bites. Directions are clear and easy to understand. Could be used for stash-busting of leftover skeins as each section changes. Scarf is a nice length that could be increased or decreased to suit the individual as needed.
Two stitches here that I'll turn into scarves, one for each stitch. Thank you for the pattern.
I wanted a fairly simple project that I could pick up and put down whilst doing another, more difficult project. I like the variety in patterns and that each square is not massive. It keeps my interest. A great way to use up spare stash.
Easy to follow directions for stitch sampler scarf. Good choice of patterns for each block
This sampler scarf looks so fun I can’t wait to make it! Just ensure you have the chart key in English not French as it originally appeared - Biscotte can help if not.
