This was my second crochet project. My first scarf was made going back and forth lengthwise. This was done widthwise, a wise choice.
My girlfriend told me she wanted a light-colored scarf, so I chose this beautiful shade of Rico Essentials Super super chunky yarn, and I made it up during lunch breaks so it would be a surprise. There was a lot of pressure to do well, as the future of our relationship hung in the balance. I'm happy to say that she loves the scarf and agreed to keep me a little while longer.
It's so easy to make, it's just a chain as wide as you want the scarf, and then half trebles the whole way until you're pleased with the length.
