Your site looks great and I will return, but for now I am looking for a pattern for fifth grade beginning knitters to create in 4 sessions. Any ideas? Thanks Nancy
Scarves, headbands or a simple tote bag. Just knit a rectangle, fold half and seaming the sides. Knit a narrow strip for a strap.
These are awesome!! Thank you for sharing! Joni
