I recently shared with you my 5 crochet projects HERE, that I made over the winter. Well, I made so many crocheted projects and I was just got so tired of crocheting, that I decided to knit a scarf. I made this black scarf with thick yarn and large knitting needles.
I loved using this black yarn because it has mixed into it the colors yellow, blue, green, and purple. I feel like this will go with any color winter coat.
It was a nice change from crocheting and I enjoyed knitting this simple scarf.
Here is the knitted scarf all finished. I will be donating this to our annual holiday knit/crochet sale we have every fall at my church. I now have a large bag filled with crochet and knit items that I made since the beginning of the year.
The yarn is from Lion Brand, Color Waves, soft boucle yarn in the color LAVA #353 Lot # 20594.01. The yarn is thick and chunky and the knitting needle size is US size 13. I looked up this yarn online at the Lion Brand website, but I don't think they make this yarn anymore. This yarn was given to me by my mom a few years ago. You can always use something similar in thick yarn.
I love using thick yarn and large knitting needles, which made the scarf work up faster. The stitch I used to make the scarf is the garter stitch. To see this stitch you can click HERE.

I hope I have inspired you to knit a scarf using thick yarn and large knitting needles. Are you working on any knit or crochet projects right now?
