It took me a while to find the perfect pattern for this awesome "Starry Night" fingering-weight superwash merino wool yarn. I wanted a simple stitch pattern to show off the very pretty hand-painted colors, but I also wanted something that would be fun to make.
Since I needed more practice with Tunisian crochet, this Tunisian Scarf/Cowl pattern ended up being a great choice for this yarn, paired with a size G hook. However, since I used thinner yarn than the pattern called for, I had to work more stitches (30). Luckily, the work was still narrow enough for me to get by with my standard crochet hook, since I still haven't gotten around to purchasing any Tunisian crochet hooks yet.
The completed scarf measures about 5 inches wide by 66 inches long. I completed the crocheting at the end of June, but it took me a bit to find some buttons that are the right size and coordinating color for this very colorful accessory.
At first I considered just leaving off the buttons, but I really do like that it can be worn as either a scarf (with it tied/wrapped around the neck and the ends left hanging down over the shoulders) or as a cowl (with the ends buttoned together and the whole thing looped around the neck).
