I'm relatively new to this knitting thing (making one snood, badly, does not make you a pro, I'm told). So this super chunky wool is perfect for a beginner because it knits up really quickly and let's face it, who wants to sit around knitting all day? (She says, knitting all day)
Also it was only £6.95 per ball, and you can't argue with cheap balls. That means it was only £14 for a scarf knitted EXACTLY to my specific scarf requirements. #FTW.
I have to admit, it's a pretty great feeling to wear something you made yourself, and, y'know, didn't find at the bottom of a shop's bargain bucket. Maybe one day I'll be one of those Nannas that knits embarrassing and colourful socks... or Shreddies.
So, if you'd also like to spend your Sunday nights rocking out with The Voice and a ball of wool (trust me, it's addictive... Knitting, not The Voice) then here are some great video tutorials that I used:
Step 1: Cast on and knit
Step 2: Purl
Step 3: Cast off
Step 4: Add tassels
