Crocheted scarf

Hello!  Just finished up my second scarf for the year.  I followed the Triple Luxe Cowl pattern from All About Ami.  It's a fast project and I think I would have finished faster if I hadn't taken it apart like 3 times to make sure I was connecting my rounds correctly.  I got my yarn from Lion Brand Yarn on Monday night and finished it Wednesday night so that is a quick project for me.  I wish I had ordered more of the yarn.  It is so soft and poufy!

Here it is folded up.  I love the stitches on here because it looks a bit knitted instead of crocheted.  I know, I should learn how to knit instead of trying to fake knit with crochet.  But crocheting seems a bit easier, doesn't it?  Have you seen the latest trend with yarn also?  They are coming out with some huge bulky yarn and even larger hooks and needles.  They look like tree branches!  I think it looks really neat to crochet or knit something with super bulky yarn but it does look a bit comical trying to knit with needles thicker than your arms.

Here it is wrapped on a hanger.  It measures about 30 inches long when folded in half and about 7.5 inches wide.  I really wish I had this on my freezing trip to LA.  Yes, I would never make it on the East coast!

I haven't decided quite what to do with the scarves I've been making.  Possibly give away as gifts or even sell in my Etsy shop.  Think I'll be ordering more yarn soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Neat! Both knitting and crocheting look difficult, especially to keep the stitches even. My grandma used to knit a lot but nobody else ever learned.
