Okay, so I've been a member of Craftster for... not that long. This is my first topic-post, and I'm really proud of this simple little scarf <3

Longwinded Backstory (optional): My cousin was just learning to crochet, and he was starting a scarf, but was doing it length-wise and didn't want to contine. He came over to help me with a college application thing, and decided he'd wait until I saw the scarfling before he frogged it. It was like a long rope, and I couldn't really tell where any of the stitches were, but it was so cute~ He decided to start over, and while he was talking to my husband after helping me with the app, I started to crochet a scarf. He was using a J hook, and I was like OMG at the size of it (it's now officially the largest hook I've ever used), but I got used to it. I was some rows into it when I decided that it would be rather boring as one big hunter-green length, and wanted to add in a stripe. I've never changed colors at the end  of a row, so it was new and exciting.

I was only going to do one stripe, but then I thought it would look good as a striped scarf, so I continued, and it just happened that I was exactly 10 rows in when I stuck the first stripe in. Since the lighter green yarn was WAY bulky, I used my H hook, so that the stitches would be relatively the same. This was also the second project I've ever actually weaved in the ends on. Believe me, from now on? I'll leave the ends in excess of 6in DX

On to the pictures! The only part you came for Tongue


I had my lovely husband model it. He was only a bit reluctant~


Excuse the boxer-shot. He's about 5'10", so the scarf is relatively huge. I wasn't exactly sure how long it SHOULD be, so I measured by having him put it on while I was still working on it, for reference.


I think the colors are most true in this shot. It's storming outside, so I can't use natural light >_<;

This worked up SO fast. About half a day, really. And I'm so proud of it, but mostly I'm proud of weaving in all those pesky ends. Yay~

Thanks for looking!

Thanks you two!
I also love green. And I never thought I'd be able to weave in ends, either <3 Give it a go, Sera, you might be surprised Tongue

great looking scarf!

you know you can crochet over the ends as you go along, that way the only ends you have to weave in are at the very beginning and the very end ^_^
