  1. OMG, I could so do with that right now (even tho I’m sitting inside) – it’s freezing down here in Hobart!!!!!!!

  2. Very cute! I was thinking of a granny squares scarf but I was afraid of so many squares to sew. This is the perfect solution: many colors and nothing to sew! Great!
    Can you accept comments in italian?
    Kisses from the sea of Genoa!

  3. I love the look of this! Is this something a beginner could do? I’m having a hard time reading the pattern cause I’m really new to this. What does “tr” mean?

  4. This scarf looks great – can’t wait to try it. A question about the pattern:
    “work 2 tr, ch 2, 3 tr, ch 2, 3 tr into 4th ch from hook,”
    Can you clarify this more? Are all of these steps done in the 4th ch from your hook? Thanks!

  5. So this is just a looooonnnnggg Granny square, but not square. Love it! I might even have the patience to pull this off!
    How long is this one with 300 chain stitches to start? And how wide?
    And for those of us who have crochet hooks with the alphabet, it looks like 5.5mm would be between H (5mm) and J (6mm).
    I will make one of these! I promise!

  6. I think the idea is great in school colors and matching parka color for college granddaughters in Colorado and Michigan. Thanks for the idea. Nadine
