Box Stitch Scarf

This isn't my favorite, but it was super-quick. I made it yesterday using one skein of Wool Ease (162 yards) and only had a few inches left.
I used the link HERE to get this free pattern. I chained 130 to begin and used an I hook. Next time I will use a smaller hook so the holes are smaller, but then you'd have to chain more to begin. Figure your starting chain by multiples of 4. (I used the instructions for the border on that first page with the sage afghan on it.)
I started out making this into an afghan because I have four skeins of this yarn that I got on clearance online at least a year ago. When the dyeing of the yarn didn't come out a color to match this yesterday, I decided I didn't have enough for an afghan and just made it into a scarf.
