I am so loving these (fairly) new super scarves that I am seeing out there. I want to try my hand at them. This particular version measures a very long 100" in length. You will also get a wider scarf than normal, too, with 16". It is groups of three double crochets in one space that create the checkerboard look. I think that you actually NEED a more open and loose stitch when you are making these super scarves, otherwise they will not drape and be able to comfortably drape around your neck- if the stitches are closed and tight it will be way to cumbersome.

Another pattern proving that going back to the simple basics can result in a lovely piece. I would use different colors, or perhaps just one color, but other than that I really love this scarf. And because it is so long one could also wrap it multiple times around the neck and be lovely and snug on those really very cold winter days.

This Neon Checkerboard Super Scarf excites me because of the two tone color scheme used in the pattern. I actually find this too narrow and lacy for a winter scarf but only for the color scheme, I give this a five-star rating. I simply love the light green/midnight blue combination, it is unique and unconventional. Well, I can make this scarf to suit my own specifications, maybe make it wider, more compact but I would like to stick to the colors and for subsequent projects of this exact same scarf, probably go for bolder and more vibrant colors or earth color combinations. Can't wait to start this project.
