The weather has been exceptionally cold here in the Midwest this week and it doesn't look like it will be warming up anytime soon. The wind-chill has been below zero, and the actual temperature isn't much better. I am choosing to stay inside as much as possible and snuggle with my yarn, but on the occasions that I have to leave the house I want to make sure I am bundled up and warm! This oversized bulky striped scarf is the perfect thing to keep my neck and upper body warm against that bitter cold wind.


One of my favorite things about making with bulky yarn is how fast it works up. You can whip up a few of these scarfs in no time! So let's get started!




For this scarf I used Charisma Yarn by Loops and Threads, but any Bulky 5 weight yarn will work.

Tassels

Cut 60 15” pieces of yarn

Using 3 pieces per tassel, (10 tassels per end), fold yarn in half and using a small hook pull the center fold of the yarn into the space far enough to create a loop. Pull the ends of the yarn through the loop and pull tight securing the tassels to the end of the scarf.


If you would like to purchase an AD FREE PDF you can find it on Ravelry or Etsy





Have fun experimenting with different color combinations and varying the distance of the stripes for a one of a kind scarf. I can't wait to see what you come up with!


This red and white one is one of my favorites and is perfect for Valentines Day!





I hope you are staying well and staying warm! If you make a Bulky Striped Scarf I would love to see it! You can tag me on Instagram or on Facebook
