Grab your free scarf knitting pattern. It’s a classic garter stitch chunky knit scarf with a pretty edge.

I offer the pattern with and without the pretty edge, if you’re not quite ready for it. It took me years to muster up the courage and patience to learn how to make a pretty edge. Now that I know how to do it, I have no idea what I was afraid of. It’s super easy! There’s a video, so you can see it in action before giving it a try.
