I've been knitting for about 7 years and would say that I'm fairly proficient (comfortable with various increases and decreases, cabling, etc). I've decided to try crochet and found a fun pattern for a snake scarf with metallic green yarn chosen by my 6-year-old son:
I tinkered around with some YouTube videos and think I have the hang of sc and dc enough to create something, though I'm sure it'll be messy. It calls for sport weight yarn and an F hook, but I have lightish-weight worsted and an H hook. If I tried to make the scarf a little less open by doing sc instead of dc would I need lots more yarn and take twice as long to finish? Or could I get away with just using a G hook? For what it's worth I'm a pretty tight knitter.
(If I get really ambitious perhaps I'll add beads or something at the tail to be a rattle.)
Thanks for your help!
