HOW TO KNIT A CHUNKY SCARF | A FREE KNITTING TUTORIAL FOR BEGINNERS

If you’re thinking about giving knitting a go, but you’re not sure where to start, then you’ve come to the right place! I truly believe that everyone can knit, and my best advice is to just give it a go! It’s unlikely that your first project will be perfect, but if you start with something simple like this chunky scarf you’re pretty much guaranteed to get a cosy, wearable accessory at the end of it.

The premise of a scarf is simple, you first cast on your stitches, then you knitknitknit, and then you cast off and weave in your ends – it’s really as easy as that!

I’ve put together a video tutorial that teaches you how to make this simple, chunky scarf, one step at a time…

You will need:

  • 4 balls of super chunky yarn (I used Lion Brand Hometown USA in Dallas Grey)
  • 1 pair of 10mm knitting needles
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle

If you’re interested in learning more about knitting, I’ve got some resources that you might find useful. You might want to check out my Knitting Abbreviations Guide, Knitting Needle Size Guide, Knitting Needle Conversion Chart and Yarn Weight Conversion Chart. You might also want to take a look at my YouTube tutorials which cover a few basic knitting techniques.

I hope you enjoy getting started with knitting, and please do contact me or find me on Instagram if you have any questions, and tag me if you share pictures of your own knitted scarf!
