These are some of the scarves I crocheted over the last couple of years. They're ridiculously easy to make, too. For each scarf, I used 2 skeins of "novelty yarn" and a matching worsted weight yarn, and single-crocheted them together until I ran out of the novelty yarn.
I used a single yarn for these in single crochet.
Simple, easy, practical, and no one has said "Where did you get those awful things?" - yet. *lol*
