Knit Chunky Scarf - Free Pattern


This was one of the first patterns I ventured to write. This knit chunky scarf is also a staple in my closet. I love it! I made myself one a few years back and it still gets tons of compliments simply because it is very impressive. I've sold several copies of this pattern, but now I'm retiring it from my shop(s) and giving it to you here for free! Why? Well a couple of reasons: 1) I want to focus my shop and efforts on crochet so I'm slowly retiring all knitting patterns. I love to knit, but I can't get as much done in that medium as I can in the limited time I have to crochet; 2) I love the supportive handmade community and sometimes you gotta give something back to show your love.

So here is the Knit Chunky Scarf Pattern for your enjoyment! You can also download a free copy if you're on Ravelry.
