So, with one skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick, a Size Q Crochet Hook, and half an hour, I made me a scarf to wear the next day:


I used up practically every inch of the skein. I measured out my fringe first and crocheted until I ran out of yarn, and it's the perfect length.

I've also made them using 2 skeins of a worsted weight held together, that works well, too. Here's what I did:

Measure out your fringe first, depending on the number of stitches across your going to make it. If you start by chaining 7 stitches, then it's 5 sts aross. I used double stands for my fringe, so I measured out 20 lengths (10 for each end of my scarf). Does that make sence? If you start by chaining 8 sts, then it's 6 sts across, so you should measure out 24 lengths (12 for each end of my scarf).

Chain 7 sts (or 8 if you want it slightly wider).
ROW ONE: Hdc in third ch from hook, and in each ch st across
ROW TWO: Chain 2, Hdc in each st across
Repeat row two until you run out of yarn. Attach fringe to each end.

That's a great stylin scarf...big hooks, nice wool...instant wearables--almost. Thanks for sharing the tute!  I think I need to stick to one skein scarves otherwise people end up wrapping them 3 times round their necks and still tripping over them! Roll Eyes  Of course it would help if when taking measurements I remembered I'm 5'9" and my daughter is 5'2"! Cheesy
