***You can purchase an INEXPENSIVE AD-FREE PDF of this pattern on Ravelry HERE or Etsy HERE***

This incredibly soft and chunky scarf is the perfect quick knit for this winter. Made using only 3 balls of chunky yarn, this project is deliberately designed to be not just beginner friendly, but also to give texture and interest as a quick and easy knit for a more experienced knitter.

I used Scheepjes Namaste - the soft roving texture of the yarn makes the scarf so soft and squishy! But you can use any yarn that calls for 8mm needles (If you use lighter/heavier yarn then you will find your scarf width is different to mine).
