Wine red scarf

This season I am really into tube scarves, but instead of buying them in shops, I like to make them myself. And this scarf cost me only 3 euros, but in shop I could get a similar scarf for like 5 euros at minimum. And I know that it's not a huge difference, but there's a saying that every penny counts! ;) 
So, you might consider this as a DIY post, though, I am not going to teach you how to knit! I mean I am no expert when it comes to knitting, I kinda do my own thing that I could not explain! :D
But if you do not know how to knit HERE is a link to site, where everything is explained perfectly! ;)
What you need are two needles and approximately two tangles
So to start, I casted on 40 stitches. Then by turns I knitted one knit stitch and one purl stitch. As you can understand it's really, really simple scarf! Though in the future I would like to add some knitting patterns in my scarves!
 
This is how it looked after I knitted the first yarn tangle!
 After you have knitted the suitable and satisfactory length of the scarf, you stitch both ends together
 And there you go a simple tube scarf is ready!
So as you can see it is really easy to make a simple scarf! I, personally, like to knit while I am watching some films or tv shows, because with eyes I am watching the show or film, but with my hands I am knitting. It's a win-win situation! :)

With love,
Maddie
