When I see a title like "one sitting scarf" it's kind of like a challenge. Can it really be made in one sitting? How many hours is that? Now I will have to make this and find out lol. With the super bulky/super chunky yarn and big needles it should work up quickly.

It took 100 minutes to make, for me. Watched a movie, made the scarf.

Worked up beautifully and quickly.
