I work at a dog kennel, and since it is regularly 10-20 degrees outside when we're outside with the dogs, I like to keep warm. The hard part is I hate hats, earmuffs, etc. I've already made a panta located somewhere else in this board, but I'm afraid it doesn't work well at the kennel, because it slips off. I needed something better.

A scarf is a wonderful thing. This is done in tunisian simple stitch through the gray and black sections, and tunisian twisted simple stitch at the "stripes". I made it randomly at first -- at the half way mark I mirrored what I had already done.

The thick solid stripes you see is actually the "back" of the scarf. The shape isn't wonky -- it's just curling a bit at the sides.

The scarf measures just over 5 feet long (not including fringe) and 5.5 inches wide. This is how it looks rolled up (hand for size ref.)

 Wearing a scarf the "traditional" way at work is dangerous, because it dangles. Dogs can pull on it, etc etc. So I wear it my way!

I had to see this just becasue it was "dog-safe". My lab/goldie mix likes to eat tassels, pom-poms, fringe, etc. Your way of wearing it is very clever! and it keeps your ears and neck warm. I love those stitches. I want to try this type of crochet at some point. Thumbs up from me!
