This simple sampler scarf pattern is easy to knit, and will give you an opportunity to practice a few of the textured knitting stitch patterns I have on this site.

To test the pattern, I have made one using of Off White Panda Heath 8 Ply which is 50 percent wool and 50 percent Acrylic. This particular brand of yarn has approximately 220 metres of yarn for each 50 gm ball.

If you decide to try out the pattern with another type of yarn, the quantities are likely to vary significantly. If you use 100 percent pure wool, each 50 gram ball will contain only 95 - 100 metres, so you will have to double the quantity.
