Frilly Fluffy Scarf video tutorial

I have made tons of scarves over the last few years.. but when i bought 
the yarn to make some as gifts for my teachers this year..
it took me a day of searching the net, through my notes..
to remember how I made them
I tend to do things differently, and this was no different.
So, once i remembered, and have 2 made, working on the last one
I thought i would record and post for others to see how i do them
and for myself.

I would definitely say, this is not for a beginner crochet or
anyone unfamiliar with this yarn,
this tutorial is just a quick- "This is how i do it"
Scarf Video Tutorial (or how i do it)
With J hook and
Red heart Sashay Boutique Yarn

i like to straighten out the yarn over a cut paper towel cardboard center.
i cut about an inch slit in the top and bottom to 'hook' the beginning of the yarn.
then, i open the yarn up and begin wrapping it onto the holder.
i can crochet faster if i open it this way instead of as i go. 

Once i have it all stretched out, its time to crochet. 

Here is what i am doing:

At the beginning, i fold about 4 inches and work through the both loops at top.
I work over 4 chains. I do not skip loops on this first row.
At the last chain, I chain 1 with very next loop and turn.
5chs to make 4sc.
Row 2: I work in a *skip one loop, insert into the next, bring through, then insert into next loop and pull through to complete the single crochet stitch*
I am only skipping 1 loop for each st. I am working regular single crochet stitches across.
at the end of the row, i chain 1 with the next loop and turn.
Row 3: working in last sc of last row,  Start at * and complete sc. do 3 more across

Tips: Keep it loose, and when you turn, pull down the lace from the previous rows
its ok to not be perfect, this yarn is forgiving
COUNT, COUNT, i count my stitches at end of every row.
Turn your scarf the same way every time at the end of the row.
I work until i run out of yarn, pulling the last few loops through, and sometimes tying
a small knot at end (under the fluff) -some people sew it together.

I will have all the scarves up on my next post!
if you have any questions or comments, feel free to share!
