Now for the technical stuff– I used a different weight yarn–4 worsted weight, I also used a 3.25mm (size D) Crochet hook and since I only loom knit I did the scarf on a loom. Now I did a scarf on my KB loom first the way the directions in the pattern had and I didn’t like the way it looked so I used this fun little loom tool

It gives you a round scarf instead and I really liked the look!!

Also my finished product ended up being 21.5 inches high!!
