Autumn leaves chunky scarf

Autumn leaves is a super chunky scarf knitted on 10mm needles, suitable for beginner knitters or knitters looking for a quick and easy project. The end of summer brings autumn, the cool wind blowing and the leaves turning shades of red, yellow, orange and brown. This is one of the beautiful things about autumn along with the crunch of the leaves beneath my feet. It reminds me that summer has once again come to an end.
