How to Crochet a Chunky Last-Minute Scarfletcomments (14) December 23rd, 2011
It's the last few days before Christmas, and you're one gift short. What's a crocheter to do? We all know the answer—reach for the chunky, thick yarn and the biggest hook you can find! But what if you don't have any chunky yarn in your stash? Easy—combine multiple worsted-weight strands and make the yarn yourself!
Above, I used about nine strands. I'd call that too much for this project—it made the scarflet a bit stiff, even with the gigantic hook. So for you, I'd recommend about five strands for a looser drape. If you don't have a gigantic hook, you might need to use fewer strands. Start with a little swatch to get a feel for the thickness and drape of the fabric.
Now you've got a cute, multicolored scarflet, and it probably didn't cost you a thing. Wrap it up, put it under the tree, and get some sleep!
