Free knitting pattern for a super simple, easy to knit seed stitch cowl. It uses one skein of yarn, and can be knitted up in one night! I may have to learn how to do that. (point: not crochet, but I only have one yarn-y board)
Loose braided infinity scarf - This is a great scarf pattern for beginner knitters since not only is it easy/quick to knit with chunky yarn and big needles, but it is also made with just two basic stitches: knit and purl.
