    This is a cool pattern! Havent tried it yet, but am looking forward to doing so. I’ll bet it could also be used for a scarf, or even an afghan. Does anyone know how long of a starting chain to use for an afghan?

    LOVED doing this one – it turns out beautiful and will be a great way to use scraps!
