Linda's Vertical Striped Scarf and Striped Cap

This scarf is fun to knit because no finishing is required! I cast on 200 stitches and knit vertically in garter stitch. Each row is done in a different color using 4 scrap colors I had. Just leave the tails long and you have instant fringe.

The cap is knitted in the round with a 1x1 rib for about 1 1/2 inches. The remainder of the hat was knit in garter stitch with a different color every round.
