I love knitting scarfs despite most knitters thinking that they are boring and repetitive. The relaxed meditative nature of the scarf is why I enjoy making them. I wanted to make a crazy long scarf that would make you think of Rapunzel's hair. This is my first and cannot wait to knit in every colour I can lay my needles on. The 4 ply cone may take longer to knit but it has the wondrous advantage of not needing to add on a new ball and tie in the ends. I'm always so bad at that. The pattern can work for both young and old.
