Long Way Scarf

So this is not a very well thought out pattern or anything. I had just a few yards of yarn left over from a blanket I made for some friends, Kwasi and Irene, and I wanted to get the yarn out of the stash. Thus, the Long Way Scarf was born.

Long Way Scarf
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Encore (Worsted Weight) in charcoal grey, 200yds - 2 skeins held double;  Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Superwash in green, 218yds - 0.5 skein
Needles: US #13 circular
Notions: Crochet needle E/4-3.50mm
Finished Measurements: 6 inches x 68 inches (including fringe)
