About the Inspiration for the Quick and Chunky Scarf
Sometimes you just want a quick and easy project that you can whip up in a weekend. Having that goal in mind inspired this scarf design.
About the Yarn
The sample scarf is made using one skein of Lion Brand Hometown Bonus Bundle in Aspen Tweed. This is one of my favorite super bulky yarns in one of my favorite colorways. For quick projects, the yarn comes in generously sized skeins. It is easy to use and soft. The little flecks of color in the Aspen Tweed give it lots of depth. The yarn is machine washable too!
