A second disclaimer: I am tired and a little distracted, so you
Without further excuses, here are the instructions to make this scarf:
Crochet a chain stitch for 16 stitches. Hold and crochet 3 more loops (like you would when starting a half-shell in a granny square) and crochet a double stitch in a stitch, and repeat. Crochet one more double crochet stitch and skip over one stitch. Crochet double 3 double stitches and repeat until the end of the row. Then crochet 4 stitches to make a loop, connecting the chain to the end of the row.
|See what I mean? That's how you make the start of the scarf.|
Turn your work and make a single stitch along the loop for 3 stitches.
|That's how you get the edges of the scarf. (Circled badly.)|
Chain stitch 3 stitches and begin crocheting half-shells to the end of the row. Do this a million times, or until the scarf is long enough for your tastes.
I've also used this pattern with sock yarn and a tiny needle (I think it was a C) as well. You should have to have a longer chain when you start. I like this scarf because it's lightweight.
And that!, as promised, is my scarf post.
And there you are.
