Check out the one skein scarf that’s super easy and takes no time at all to make. Best of all it’s made from recycled silk sari remnants and is created by women. No sweatshops, no child labor and only at www.darngoodyarn.com

To make it:

Get one skein of one of the following yarns:

http://www.shop.darngoodyarn.com/product/tahiti-waters-solid-recycled-silk-sari-ribbon-yarn

http://www.shop.darngoodyarn.com/product/the-dessert-menu-solid-recycled-silk-sari-ribbon-yarn

Get your size 19 knitting needles. Cast on 5 and work the whole skein up in garter stitch. Yea it’s simple. but like what I always say, you don’t need to over-complicate a complex yarn with a crazy pattern. Let the yarn speak for itself!
