It started as a stashbusting project but is fast becoming an obsession. I've been buying newer bigger balls of yarn in order to complete my rounds. It now contains so much yarn it's actually as heavy as a sheep. I estimate I'll need about 4 more round and the blanket/bedspread will be complete and I will never need to look at a granny square again.
I will post pictures once it's done, so long as I still have strength enough in my fingers to operate the camera. Seriously, if I don't get arthritis when I'm older it will be a miracle.

Make a long chain (as long as you'd like the scarf to be) , then double crochet into the 4th chain along. Keep Ch4 and double crochet in the corresponding loop in the chain below. You should end up with something that looks like the picture below.For alternate rows you do the same only replace the double crochets with single crochets. Keep going until the scarf is as thick as you want. I chose to stop with a skinny scarf so I could use it as a belt with my jeans.

I'm please to announce that I followed a free pattern without changing it a bit and have knit these, they were easy and keep my feet toasty warm. They are very comfy and knit up relatively quickly. As you can see, they're lovely and red. I used quite thick red yarn. They really are simple to knit, all I can say is trust the pattern, they will fit at the end, even though while you're knitting them they look tiny.
