Day 100 and Open
Warm weather means lightweight scarves. One of my favorite fibers to use when it's hot out is linen. My other favorite is cotton. Happily enough, I have a blend!
The yarn I used was lace weight, but 4 strands together made a lovely heavy worsted and with my jumbo hook and a double crochet, this was finished in no time at all. A big hook with a less than big yarn makes for a loose open fabric without any special technique knowledge. Hold onto the base of your stitches to make pulling that first yarn over through a little easier. I made this cowl long enough to double.
