I am a slim woman, so made this praying that it would be a good size, and it is! It is more of a cowl, but beautiful and cozy, and also attracts a lot of positive attention! Making another for my friend right now!

Not for the unexperienced, there are many advanced knitting techniques used within this scarf but would be a great project for those wanting to learn new stitches as there are plenty of tutorials on this site to help you master them. It is a nice scarf to knit as it uses chunky wool making it soft and cosy for the winter months. The main bulk of the body is knitted in garter stitch which makes it easy to adjust the length of the scarf to fit both children and adults.
