Rainbow Sleeve Scarf

Sleeve scarves have been a favourite project of mine for a number of years now. I can't tell you how many times people have approached me and asked how I make them. I think people have an idea that a piece like this is for an advanced crocheter, but honestly it's pretty simple.

The best part about this piece is it's versatility. During the spring/summer months it can be worn as a sort of cropped sweater but then in winter it can be transitioned into an infinity scarf or perhaps even a super long scarf.
This is how I made it and what I used:
Any worsted weight yarn 100g white and small amounts of: bright pink red orange yellow green blue purple
Size L (8.00mm) crochet hook
Each dc at beginning of each row starts in same stitch as ch 2
Work through the back loops of each stitch across. This gives the scarf a ribbed effect and lots of stretch.
Begin with the purple yarn
Ch 240
Row 1: Dc in second chain from hook. 1 Dc in each chain to end. (239 stitches). Join in
