I've crocheted this scarf from a recycled charity shop jumper, which was cream, pink and dark brown stripes, hence the 'Neapolitan Ice Cream' effect - vanilla, strawberry and chocolate!
It's really long, and goes around the neck twice (so it's lovely and warm!) with plenty left to hang nicely down the front. All done in US double crochet (I don't know what the UK term is for it - the book I learned from is American!) I was really tempted to keep it, but I made to sell, so sell it I will. I crocheted it length-wise, which was a really great way to do it, and it was really quick to do, all done and dusted in a couple of days. :)
Now that I've finally learned it, I much prefer crocheting to knitting. I love the way you move along with the work, like a spider making a web, and I also love how easy it is to unravel and find where you were etc if you make a mistake. And creating something like this scarf is a breeze as you can do it length-wise, which would be tricky if knitting. :)
