i don't usually do HUUUUGE things or use this much color, but a friend asked me to make a rainbow scarf so when i started to crochet it turned into this monster. i ended up making her one back to scale, so now i'm left with this big guy
for the record, its only 8 inches wide but around 14 feet long. (oopsie!)









thanks for looking Smiley

Oh man, I love this! I would wear it 24/7, in the shower and blistering heat of summer. Lovely stitches, color, and yarn Smiley

I once had something similar happen when I first started using really big needles. The scarf was so
big it was practically unwearable so now it acts as a runner along one of those really big IKEA cube shelves haha

I'm not sure if it's just the way my screen is showing it, but I love that it's a sort of muted rainbow. Really pretty.

I would totally be wrapped up in that right now if I had it! What size hook and type of yarn did you use? If I could find the right yarn, I'd seriously consider making one for myself (and I could turn down the heat a few notches and the $$ I saved on the oil bill would probably pay for the yarn... hmmmm... I think I just found the perfect excuse to yarn shop... Wink )

thank you for all the positive responses! i'm glad you all like it so much Smiley

i used super bulky yarn, it was nothing special just a few brands from the craft store. i can't remember what hook i used either but it was one of the ridiculously large plastic ones. like i said it was a bit of a mistake but basically just crochet and crochet till you can't anymore. i think each color was a row of double crochet or one of single with another of hdc.

Awesome weaving of scarf, color combination used is really nice. But it looks much pretty on that model.
