Shifting Colors Dishcloth Scarf
If you're new to knitting, this Shifting Colors Dishcloth Scarf is a fun knitting tutorial to use for improving your skills. Instead of being knit in one piece, this scarf uses two different dishcloth patterns to create five knit squares which are seamed together to make a scarf. Create two versions of this fabulous scarf using the suggested pattern below, or create your own scarf if your favorite hues. This pattern is a great stashbuster project, as you can mix and match as many solid and striped squares as you please!
