I’ve only used crochet for edges on knitted projects, so I decided I’d try an all-crochet project. And, of course, I chose a beginner scarf.
However, I think I made a bad decision. The pattern is chain 300 (approx. 6 feet), dc for 2 rows, change color and dc for 2 rows, cont. until it is the width you want. This makes stripes going the length of the scarf.
This is a lot of dc’s and my wrists are really hurting! I can knit for hours and hours without hand or wrist pain, so I’m really concerned.
Do you think this is too much for a first project? Should I frog and start over with something else? Perhaps stripes going the other way (the width of the scarf)? If so, should I still use 2 rows of dc’s?
