There is nothing better than the satisfaction of finishing a large crochet project. Ok…some would call this small but for me this is a HUGE project.

We are going to build on the stitches that we have learned and create a really chunky, super warm scarf that is just perfect for these cold winter days.

Check out this FREE crochet pattern to create your very own chunky scarf with pockets.
