Crohook Scarf

Cro-hooking(double ended crochet) was the first type of crochet I learned to do. And for me it is the most relaxing form of crochet I've found. I love to get into a blanket, find my rythym & cruise along.

And the blankets made this way are so warm. It also makes very cozy scarfs & shawls. Here's a little one I made for a niece for Xmas. I think it turned out cute.

Here's a link to a tutorial on cro-hooking. I work through the horizontal loop like in the second sequence.
