Something about long chunky scarves makes me feel extra cozy on chilly winter days. Not only are they cozy but they are stylish as well, making them a great winter accessory.

This pattern was created using the fisherman rib stitch to add extra warmth and squishiness to the scarf.

I used Bernat Softee Chunky in Grey Heather for this scarf. It a beautiful light grey that will go with almost any colour coat. You can use any super bulky (level 6) yarn to make this scarf, Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick is another great yarn to use.

This pattern is created using the fisherman rib stitch. To create this stitch you have to knit one below for all your knit stitches.

To knit one below, you stick your needle through the face of the stitch that is right below the stitch on your needle. Shown on the photo below.

This pattern is very simple to follow and makes for a quick mindless knit. You keep repeating the pattern until you have reached your desired length for your scarf. I Knit mine to be about 81 inches long.

Once you have knit your scarf to your desired length. Bind off and add fringe to the scarf if you would like.

I added two pieces of 14-inch yarn evenly spaced (8 times) across each end of the scarf, to add a little extra flare to the scarf.
