Free Crochet Pattern: Men's Chunky Stripe Scarf

(Shown in Bernat Softee Chunky Clay & Black)

Hi! Today I am sharing the matching scarf to the Men's Chunky Stripe Beanie from yesterday, both of these patterns work up quickly and make excellent gifts! This pattern calls for Bernat Softee Chunky yarn but I have also tested it using 2 strands of Red Heart With Love (worsted weight) held together, just be sure to check your gauge. The gauge is especially important for the hat pattern. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my pattern,
 if you have any questions feel free to ask!
