First, I used Loops and Threads Cozy Wool yarn in THUNDER. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colour. It is a pretty teal. :)
I followed the pattern and made no changes to it. I loved this pattern and project because it was very easy and quick to make, and I only used 2.5 balls of yarn! : )
I highly recommend that you try this project out. :) The scarf is thick,heavy, and very warm. It would make a great gift.
Have a great day of crocheting and crafting!
