Who doesn’t love a good single skein knitting pattern? This checked scarf with bands of garter stitch at even intervals is both textural and masculine. A chain edge and knit and purl motifs really add a nice polish to this simple pattern.

Sometimes a knitting project requires sewing. If you’ve been knitting for any amount of time, you’ve probably noticed that you have to weave in ends. I prefer to weave in my knit ends with a tapestry (yarn) needle since I feel like it goes a little faster. This is probably the most common form sewing takes in my knitting. The second most common sewing action that happens in my knitting is the kitchener stitch. Also known as grafting your knitting, the kitchener stitch lets you join two ends of knitting, and if done right, it looks seamless.
