Are you looking for a knitting loom garter stitch scarf pattern? If this is your first knitting loom project, this is a reasonably easy scarf to knit. Unlike normal knitting, on a loom garter stitch is made by doing one row of knit stitches followed by one row of purl stitches.
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.
While this pattern is easier to do than the textured knitting loom scarf, doing garter stitch on a loom is slightly more difficult than if you were using knitting needles.
To make this scarf, you will have to master both knit and purl stitches on your loom.

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 add a fringe, cut 48 pieces of yarn 14 cm long. Take two strands of yarn and using a crochet hook pull through the bottom edge of your scarf, with the hook pull the ends of the yarn through the loop you have formed and pull tight.
Repeat this process to add 12 fringes to each end.
To make the scarf pictured, I used 250 grams of a 12 ply wool mix from Spotlight (Empire - 80% Australian Wool, 12% Acrylic and 8% Viscose).
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 knit all rows.
