I am not much of a teacher when it comes to crocheting so that is when I gladly link you over to to someone else who does it much better than I. So I give you the Purl Bee. They are over in my sidebar, so you can browse their site anytime, but this link HERE will show you how to knit a cowl scarf. My favorite since last year. I don't knit, but I do crochet, so I crochet to get the same look.
