Such a cute beginner scarf! Has anyone knitted this? If so, would you recommend carrying the yarn up the side for the color switches, or cutting the yarn each change?

I haven't knitted this scarf in particular, but on other striped things I've made I have carried the yarn up the side. I'm not a big fan of having to weave in lots and lots of loose ends after I've finished knitting something. There is a way that looks nice where you catch the carried color at the beginning of each row, lots of tutorials online to show how.

This is a great unisex scarf, though if I were knitting it for a man I'd leave off the fringe. Moss stitch is a really pretty stitch easy enough for a beginner ready to graduate to intermediate. -) The pattern adds just a bit of complexity by changing the colors.
