Materials:
Sport Weight Yarn with a G or H hook or Worsted Weight Yarn with an H or I hook. Red scarf was crocheted with TLC Wiggles sport yarn and a US Size H hook (width is 5 inches). Caron Simply Soft Tweed, color white, a worsted weight yarn, was used to crochet the rows shown in one of the smaller photos.

Scarf Width: About 5 inches, depending on materials used. Scarves come in many different widths so it's fine for this to vary. Gauge is not important for this project.
