This summer I started writing knitting tutorials and patterns for Craft.TutsPlus.com, and the first one is up! It’s a beginner level pattern for a simple ribbed kerchief. It’s targeted towards knitters who can cast on, knit, and purl and are ready to branch out a little, so it includes detailed instructions on the two double decreases the pattern features, sk2p and k3tog. It also has a little tutorial on how to style your kerchief like I did. I know most of you have moved beyond the basics, but this is still a fun, quick, one skein project. For mine, I used a ball of Malabrigo Arroyos, and I designed the project on 4.5 mm needles so the kerchief drapes well and doesn’t take long to make.
