Maybe I need help, but fall is coming and I can’t stop buying yarn. My thoughts turn to watching football (Go Broncos!) while curled up on the couch crocheting.
The colors are amazing (too bad I’m not a better photographer) and I can’t stop. The first step is admitting you are out of control.
Lately, I’ve been addicted to these layered loop scarfs using sashay/ruffle yarns. I love the mix of colors and soft texture of these yarns.

The “How To”
This is one long crochet chain. And I mean loooonnggg. 300 inches (25 feet). I used an extra large wood bead painted and sealed that keeps the layers in place. I used a Q hook to make these, but use the size necessary for your yarn.
These scarves are adjustable- just pull at the individual chains to extend or shorten. Or remove the bead altogether, or….
So now I have a huge boxful of different colors, including blue and orange (again, Go Broncos!).
Curious Purple Pig Rating:
There is a messy part–I get to sand and paint the wood clasp bead on the scarf. So I manage to get paint all over my hands which is 8 oinks. I’m only happy when I have paint on my skin.
A high Oink factor for color.
Overall: A respectable 8 Oink ratings for these layered loop scarves.
The classic gray scarf remains one of my favorites:
