This scarf is a chain of figure eights, hence the name (which means “Crazy Eights” in Spanish). The short version makes an intriguing piece of neckwear or a belt, and the longer chain will wrap around multiple times. Thread the links through one another or make two scarves to link together. Work as many links as you like, using more yarn to make an even longer chain. One skein of Aquarella makes approximately 10 links.

The pattern calls for two different balls of yarn. If using only one skein, divide it into two balls of equal weight before starting to knit. Use two different colors for an even crazier look!
