This fall, super scarves are the latest trend. These extra long and extra wide scarves offer many styling options and can also be worn as rectangular shawls.

I’ve been teaching crochet for about 9 years and most beginner students list a scarf as the project they want to make first. While making a scarf as a first project is too repetitive for some, for the dedicated beginner, it can provide an opportunity to practice stitches over and over until they are mastered.
I designed this scarf with a dedicated beginner (or, a devoted streaming tv fan) in mind. After the edging rows, you will do lots and lots (and lots — it’s a super scarf, after all!) of repeats of the pattern. But, you’ll get a fabulous (and reversible) unisex mock bobble texture without having to actually make bobbles.
