I'm in! I'm going to crochet scarves while doing the Blue Star afghan CAL. I figure switching between the two I won't get bored with either. I can sure use the help to keep motivated on two CALs. :hook

Well I might get in on this cal I need to crochet a scarf for my sister her birthday is coming on the 15th I have a scarf I am thinking about Skinny Minnie found the pattern in the Crocheted Scarves book by Candi Jensen. I plan to use Patons Classic Yarn already have one color and I need to get another to go with the one I already have Petal Pink and I think Patons has a off white that will go very well with the Petal Pink. So I think I am in on the cal maybe more scarves after this one. Theresa

all i do to make a scarf is make a loose foundation chain as long as you want the scarf to be, then crochet back along in whatever stich you want to use eg. DC SC etc and then just crochet back and forth, dont forget your turning chain and after you have a few rows its finished !
i always use a chunky hook 8mm and up, so it make a really chunky scaft
i put some fancy/fluffy yarn with some normal yarn 8ply/worsted, add some tassels and bobs ya uncle !

This is what I got done last night. I'm just putting it away to have on hand...possibly for next Christmas. I used Fancy Fur that I found at Dollar Tree and brown worsted weight yarn. It's 6 feet long and 2 1/2 inches wide. I used a K hook.

Clare, tell us about the stitch and yarn you used for that silvery gray scarf you are modeling.
