She shows how to put them in action in a simple, Skillshare-exclusive scarf pattern specifically designed with the novice in mind. Plus, the zoomed-in video lessons make it especially easy to see each step-by-step move. By the end of the class, you'll have a cushy, comfortable, and swingy scarf perfect for cool days or sharing with a close friend.
