Starry Night Stripes Scarf-Crochet

This is an advanced beginner pattern. Once you have a good feel for all the basic stitches up to the triple crochet (that's in the American terms, people), this scarf will be a piece of cake, but may take a few hours to work up due to the length of the thing.
The finished product is a long, supple and warm scarf. It is great as a stash buster, or for using just a small amount of yarn in each of the colors. I created it for my astronomy camping field trip, hence the lovely sky colors I used. You can use whatever colors you like, though.

What you'll need:
American size K 10.5 mm crochet hook
tapestry (yarn) needle
Seven different colors of yarn. These can all be the same kind of yarn in different colors for a uniform appearance, or you can do what I did and jump around between different types.
