It should work with crochet as well.  I don't crochet myself because it irritates me.  No patience.  But I know how, and my mother does a lot.  I'd say if you want a nice chunky look, go for an afghan hook.

ohh, I love the colors! beautiful scarves! Nice job
 I myself prefer acrylic 1. because it's dirt cheap and I'm a broke collage student 2. I'm allergic to wool  Sad however somday I'd like to make a chunky sweater out of some nice thick iclandic wool and hope it doesn't give me a rash!

You know, the bulk yarn they sell at jo anne fabrics would be really great for this. It's $2 for a big, hunking pound of yarn and the color i found is beautiful, albiet acrylic. *Squeals* yay, more scarves for me!

Who cares if you're a cheap ass when the results are that fantastic?
I'd really like to make something like that...  Smiley

Wow! Those scarves are wonderful!  I've been trying to use up all my acrylic yarn (and resist buying more) but I might just have to buy some of this Red Heart Kids' Neon.  Great job!

i took those on a manual-focus 35mm pentax P3, aka my baby.  i've had it since high school and it has been my trusty companion since.  i'm kind of wishing for a digital, but i'm still a mite wary.  i'm sure i'll have to make the switch someday.

I KNEW it... those are really gorgey pix, and gorgey scarves as well.  I need to try that... i have too much red heart lying around. <3

I loved those multi-stranded scarves so much I wanted to make one for my grandaughter...howe ver we live in sunny southern California, and all she really needed was one for style, so I used just two strands, size 15 needles, and a rib stitch over 14 stitches.  She chose the length, and is happy to model the finished product.
