After another false start with the scarf, I finally settled on a series of crocheted rows and a crochet hook size that worked for this scarf - not too tight so the yarn is cuddly soft, not too many holes, no detailed stitches that disappear in the nobby yarn. The idea was to surround a row of dc or hdc with sc and to not follow a dc-sc series with another dc row (this prevented too many holes that occur with a K hook and a dc stitch). The short pieces of yarn pulled out of the Jazzy Beach Wrap were used for the behind-the-neck area; longer pieces were used for the blocked sections.

For my about 5-foot 3-inch body, the scarf was much much too long the first day I wore it - and it stretched as the day went on! Hanging 2-3 inches below my knees when not wrapped around my neck) made me feel like I was going to trip on the ends! So, I shortened the scarf by about by about 10-12 inches. 80 inches long is much better!
