The 1-skein 1-hour scarf

Do you crochet? I have an insane number of unfinished projects around the house – knitting, crochet, sewing, other random arts & crafts… I have a problem with finishing things. Actually, I have a problem with starting too many things, running out of time, and then dropping projects in-progress to begin new ones. And that, friends, is why I have to share this one with you. I did a whole scarf in an hour,using only 1 skein of bulky yarn that was on sale for $1.99

Supplies:

1 skein of bulky weight yarn – 100+ yards (I used Loops & Threads Charisma)

Size N crochet hook

Instructions:

Chain 9, reverse, and single crochet (skipping the first chain) so that you have 8 stitches.

Chain 3 at the end of the row, turn and treble stitch all the way across, starting at the first single crochet. Continue treble stitching (with a chain of 3 to end each row, giving it enough height for the treble stitch). Keep going till you reach the desired length, or till your yarn is nearly used up. Save a bit at the end of the skein to put some fringe on the ends. Since we add fringe, there’s none of that pesky weaving in the ends bit that I hate to do.

Here’s a tutorial on the treble stitch.
