PAT­TERN NOTES

Scarf is made start­ing with a granny square mo­tif in the cen­ter. The 2 halves of the scarf are worked in rows off of the edges of the square, al­ter­nat­ing col­ors for each row. Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of round counts as a dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated. Each row needs to be­gin and end with a long tail (5 or 6 inches) as it will be part of the fringe. The chain-2 at the end of each row is meant to be pulled tightly enough that the chain is no longer vis­i­ble and is more of a knot to en­sure the end is se­cure. The fringe that is added later will cover this.

SPE­CIAL STITCH

Dou­ble cro­chet join (dc join): Make slip knot on hook, yo, insert hook in spec­i­fied sp, yo and pull up a lp [yo, pull through 2 lps] twice.
