Day 325 and Slippage
While I've made a scarf before by stitching the length of the scarf, cutting and starting over with a new thread at the original end, this marks the first time I've made a scarf using nothing but crocheted slip stitches.
When working with most weights of yarn, creating a fabric from slip stitches becomes very thick and very tedious very quickly. I used a jiffy hook and thicker yarns (though of many different weights) that were still not quite thick enough to fill the jiffy hook. As a result the fabric is curiously resembling woven fabric rather than crochet.
