    A safety measure

    In case you run short of the yarn, always have a good stopping point as you crochet. This will not only help you if you start a new spool, but also will be useful for a multi-striped scarf. It is advised to do this using a plastic needle and at the very end, when the desired length of your scarf is achieved.
