If this is your first knitting loom project, this is not a pattern that I would recommend.
Providing you have mastered doing knit and purl stitches on your loom, this pattern is achievable, but it will take a bit of care to make sure that you have done your knit or purl stitches in the right place!
I designed the scarf and I had a bit of trouble keeping the pattern correct!
Having said that, the stitch pattern on this scarf is very effective and might just provide you with a bit of a challenge.
The stitch pattern is a kind of elongated moss stitch pattern, with a row of knit stitches between each pattern row.
For a closer look at the detail of the stitch pattern, just scroll down to the bottom of the page for a close-up photo.

Finishing Your Scarf
Using your knitters needle weave the ends of the yarn securely into the fabric of your scarf and trim the excess.
To make the scarf pictured I used 200 grams of a 100% pure wool 12 ply from Bendigo Woollen Mills.
The quantity you will need to make the scarf will vary depending on the yarn that you decide to use as some yarns are heavier than others.
As the scarf is knitted as a flat piece, you can use a bigger round loom or a knitting board to make the scarf.
You just limit the number of pegs you use so that you only have 24 stitches. Or alternatively you could knit this scarf on normal knitting needles, just substitute 5.50mm single point needles for your loom and follow the instructions provided.
