I'm always on the lookout for something to make for my mum for Christmas. I came across a fabric scarf in the local market. I just had to have a go.
It was basically a strip of ribbon with holes punched in it. Casting on the 5 stitches I needed was as simple as putting the knitting needle through 5 consecutive holes.
I then just knitted through the pre-cut holes.
I was really pleased with the results and mum loved it.
