Thanks for the INSPIRADO!
you know, if you're just begging to crochet it's wonderful to get a HUGE crochet hook and use 4 strands of yarn as one... your scarf will go so quickly! For fun i usually use 4 strands of similar colors, that way you wouldn't even have to worry about changing colors at the end of rows.
for example, i made the throw below in just 3 nights using 4 yarns as one. if you like to finish things QUICKLY before you get bored with them like i do, it's a great technique.
