this was the easiest scarf in the world to make, but it looks much more complicated. i liked that you don't have to chain a gazillion stitches to start. I saw several pretty handspun examples (rav) and knew that it would be perfect for my hello yarn merino.

i crocheted until i ran out of yarn. i believe i ended up with 58 shells. the scarf is quite long, and with a single wrap around the neck, it wouldn't be very warm, but a double wrap suits nicely.

i think the ruff is making a comeback, don't you?
