How many stitches do I cast on for a scarf?
If you are a beginner knitter, you should make a relatively small scarf, enough to keep you warm, but avoid making it so wide that it takes too long to knit. If you are knitting with worsted weight yarn and size 8 to 10 needles, you’ll need to cast on 30 to 40 stitches for a nice-sized scarf.

How many balls of wool do you need to knit a scarf?
You may need approx. 5 or 6 50g balls of wool to make your scarf. You can choose any colour wool, even a multicolour wool.
What size needles for a scarf?
Use two skeins if you want a longer scarf. The larger the yarn and the lighter the color, the easier it will be to see your stitches. You will also need size 13 US (9 mm) knitting needles or whatever size creates the gauge you want.
Can you teach yourself knitting?
Give yourself time to learn the following techniques: casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, decreasing, increasing and casting off. Each of these will take some trial and error, but once you know them, you ‘ll be able to make most beginner patterns. (And don’t forget to take breaks to stretch your hands.)
Is crocheting or knitting better?
Knitting uses a pair of long needles to form the loops, moving a set of loops from one needle to another; the stitches are held on the needle. Crochet uses a single hook to hook the loops together directly on the piece. It is this major difference that makes crochet much easier to work with than knitting.

Why is knitting so hard?
This kind of complex coordination requires practice. It will also require a lot of practice to knit stitches evenly across the whole work. I always say it should look handcrafted, not self-made. But as long as you can’t hold an even tension on your yarn across thousands of stitches, that’s hard to achieve.
