I dreamed about a scarf

About a week ago I had a dream about a scarf made of squares sewn together in a row. The squares in my dream were knitted however, because the squares looked a lot like crochet granny squares, I was unable to figure out how they could be made by knitting. Well. That's ok, because I've often wished I knew how to make those. A quick google search landed me on an instructional youtube clip and before I knew it, I was crocheting a little one that was all my own. The pattern she used wasn't my favorite, so I searched a little more until I found a completely adorable one with simple enough instructions. And so I give you:

I will still need a few more, but this is what I have so far.
I'm using Peaches & Creme cotton in variegated earth tone and ecru.

The squares will be sewn together end to end, something like this:

I have a few other projects taking up my time, that and the fact that we are far, far, far from scarf season (even a slim cotton one) - I'm in no rush to finish this. Probably about a week or so. Many thanks to Teresa for posting the tutorial video!

My daughter is home for a visit and she's showing me how to crochet. She suggested practicing with granny squares. I'm off to check out the pattern you're using. Thanks.

nice job! So you just learned how to crochet? Just like that? I'm impressed!

And I have a scarf link for you!

Huh, I can't find exactly the same link I remembered. But anyway, your idea reminded me of one like this I'd seen, somewhere:
Toast Scarf
