I made it just a little longer than I am tall and hope it will be okay for him. I don't think Jos will like having a scarf that is way long after being looped around his neck. I also have to be careful as I am afraid it might stretch a little. I used double strands of grey wool blend yarn. It is a double crochet simply switching from stitching in the back loops for a row and front loops for the next. I used a larger hook (6,5mm) which might cause stretch.
This morning while checking my emails, I was reading the Lion Brand newsletter and this is the Lola cartoon for this time. I had to really laugh. Up to now, I often sneak onto my mother's blog and put them on there as they make me think of her but I think today....Miss Pickles is Lola. *wink*
