What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is sooooo easy to make and it took me less than 90 minutes. Using super bulky acrylic yarn and a size N/15 Tunisian Crochet hook, I cast on 12 stitches, then did one Tunisian Simple Stitch pass. After that, I did extended TSS on each pick up pass (added a chain stitch after each pick up), making sure to do a chain at the beginning and end of the pick up pass too. When I was about out of yarn (about 40 inches from the beginning), I bound off. I used the invisible mattress stitch to join the ends, then wove in all yarn tails. After that I ran a row of fringes along the invisible seam. To finish the piece, I hand washed it, threw it into the dryer on the spin cycle, then ran it through the gentle heat setting of my dryer until it was damp. I hung it over the railing of my porch for about an hour, until it was dry, put it on my dress form and took a photo! EASY PEASY!

I just started a scarf on super bulky too. Thanks for the tip on the size needle...I'll be going to Joanne's today to find a size N hook !! Looks so very nice...

I'm not sure you'll find an N hook at JoAnn's. I got mine at Ginger's old shop and she had them made special. I did recently get a terrific Tunisian Crochet hook with cables set on Amazon. Twelve hooks, from 3 to 10 mm (P) diameter for $10.20, with free Prime shipping. They're made out of wood and I like them.

I ordered them as soon as I got off the phone with you and they were at my door the next morning!! Unfortunately, the needle did not glide with that yarn but I did dig up another sz.15 that I had special ordered with Ronna some time ago, and it worked like a breeze. Returned the package to Amazon with no trouble at all. Just finished my third scarf and just love them....thanks for your lead!!
