He needed a red scarf for a costume he wants to wear later this month; I needed a distraction from a marathon of Walking Dead episodes...so I crocheted him a red cotton scarf.
I made the scarf with red cotton yarn and a J crochet hook.
I made a chain long enough to reach from one fingertip to the other of my outstretched hands (about 5-1/2 feet)
I then used single crochet until it was the width he preferred (fairly wide; about 6").
He keeps wearing it. He's 18, but he'll always be my baby.
