- Use yarn in your stash and run short
- Call local shops and learn that not only do they not have the same color but the brand has been discontinued.
- Purchase additional yarn that coordinates but is slightly thicker so that you have to begin with a shorter chain length and alter directions slightly so coordinating strip is not too wide.
Two strips were made using the now discontinued Red Heart Eco-Ways, color Fern and one strip in Lion Brand Yarn Boucle Homespun, color Pesto. Since the Boucle yarn is thicker, I chained a shorter length and worked in all double crochet but completed the last row in half double crochet so this strip would be the same width as first two.
You can easily make the scarf longer or shorter by the number of chains you begin with. Make it thicker or thinner by using double crochet, half double crochet, single crochet or a combination. Use all the same color or three different colors. It is very adaptable.
