Pattern description from Stitch ‘n Bitch: “Here’s a nice, chunky scarf that can be made in a few evenings and will help you to practice some basic skills: casting on, knitting, adding a new color of yarn, and binding off. Best of all, by the time you’re done with it, you will really be comfortable making the knit stitch. use an extra-bulky yarn. We used some really beautiful 50% alpaca / 50% wool yarn from Blue Sky Alpaca (100 grams, 45 yards), 1 skein of each of the following three colors: green, purple, and teal. Other yarns you could use would be Brown Sheep Burly spun, Rowan Big Wool, or GGH Marakko in three colors that you like. You’ll also need a pair of size 17 straight needles - these are humungo and usually come only in plastic.”

Size: Approx 5” wide x 69” long

Not an “official” pattern from a book. It’s basically practice for a beginning knitter to get the hang of garter stitch. Found on page 45.
