I am a new knitter and I would love love love to make a chunky knit scarf for my fiance. I found a picture of exactly what I’m looking for on etsy but sadly it won’t let me post the direct link- just email me and i can send over the pictures. Any advice on the amount of yarn I need to buy and how to make it? As for yarns, I think merino is really nice but its quite expensive. I basically want something soft and not scratchy, but also nice and thick to get that luxurious sweater like feel that my imaginary scarf has :).
