Day 37 and the Chaingang
If you have no time, no yardage, no experience and no heat, then this is the perfect scarf for you to try! It's fast, uses only 1 ball, uses easy stitches and is decepptively warm.
It's nothing but chains and single crochets making it an ideal and fast beginner scarf. I know that when I first start on any craft or skill, I'm always looking for that instant gratification to get me all pumped up for the more involved projects.
1 ball Charisma by Loops and Threads (It's the Michael's house brand. It's actually very soft and comfortable to work with and I recommend it!)
Size N hook (10 mm)
Starter row: Sc in second chain from hook, *Ch 5, Skip 5 chains, SC in 6th chain*Repeat to end.
All following rows: Ch 1, turn, Sc in first sc, *Ch 5, Sc in next sc* Repeat to end.
Sew in your ends.
This took me no time at all. I'd guess 2 hours, tops. If you want to substitute yarns, I suggest using thick fluffy yarns or highly textured yarns for the best results. I love smooth yarns, but worsted weight and thinner seem to result in a somewhat anorexic looking scarf. This would also be an excellent scarf for handspun yarns and especially thick and thin yarns.
