I've just completed testing of this simple pattern designed for those who are newer to knitting and might want a more interesting pattern without feeling overwhelmed. The Franklin Scarf (named after my father) is just that type of project.
For those who are a bit more advanced, this pattern becomes intuitive and is an easy one to carry around as "emergency knitting" or to take on car trips.
Read about it HERE on Ravelry. Purchase the pattern there for $2.00.
The Franklin scarf is named after my father, William Franklin Kunnecke, who believed in working hard, always doing your very best, and being generous enough to share your knowledge with others. My dad worked in construction, and I grew up around tools and sawdust. He taught me early on that shortcuts lead to a longer path and that almost always, the quickest way to get something done is to do it right the first time. It's a good lesson to learn and not always the easiest one to practice.
From my dad I also learned we can find the answer to almost any question if we take the time to research. He was an avid reader, could build (or fix) anything, and I have missed him every day since his death in 2007.
Thank you, as always, for your support of my work. If you have questions or comments, I'd love to hear from you (either via the comments or my email).
