Knitting Patterns for Scarves
I asked my sister that very question when I grew concerned that my mom had stopped knitting. I told her I’d find her some knitting patterns for scarves that she could make for Christmas gifts.
My mom has always liked knitting, but recently she's found it more difficult to follow the more complicated or involved patterns for knitting projects. Not only that, but she's had a little trouble holding the thinner needles that make smaller stitches.
I decided to take her to our local hobby shop, where I knew I had seen numerous books and magazines that contain knitting patterns for anything from scarves to hats to sweaters to afghans.
While we were there, I helped Mom look at patterns for the more "chunky" yarns and designs, which would allow her to use larger knitting needles.
When it comes to finding knitting patterns for scarves or any type of knitted craft, always take into consideration the dexterity needed to not only manipulate the knitting needles, but also the cognitive reasoning and ability to understand the instructions, especially when some of the instructions can be quite complicated and detailed, depending on the design of the scarf.
