one hour scarf - knitted version - takes two hours
This one is for those of you who love the idea of the one hour scarf, but don't crochet.

There's only one problem... it takes two hours!
Well, it took me two hours... and I am an experienced knitter. However, even at two hours it is still a speedy option. My finished scarf is approximately 160cm x 9cm
I have used 8.0mm needles and three strands of yarn worked together
cast on 160 stitches
row 1 - slip 1, (K1, P1) to last stitch, K1
row 2 - slip 1, (P1, K1) to last stitch, P1
repeat these two rows, until work measures 9cm
cast off (loosely)
You might prefer to work flat using circular needles for this project, given the number of stitches you will be working with. My preference is for straight needles, but if you use them.. be prepared for your needles to be full up like these ones.
