Mothers’ Day Scarf

My mom really liked the scarf I sent her for Mothers’ Day.  Since it was such an easy and fast pattern to make, I thought I’d share it with you.

Begin with an N hook and bulky  yarn.  Gauge doesn’t matter too much for a scarf — though if it starts to turn out to un-scarf-like proportions, you’ll know something is off.  Otherwise, don’t worry about it.

1) Chain 201 and turn.  SC in 1st stitch from hook, and single crochet to the end.
2) Chain 2 and turn.  HDC in 2nd stitch from hook, and half-double crochet across.
3) Chain 3 and turn.  DC in 3rd stitch from hook, and double crochet across.
4) Chain 2 and turn.  HDC in 2nd stitch from hook, and half-double crochet across.
5) Chain 3 and turn.  DC in 3rd stitch from hook, and double crochet across.
6) Chain 1 and turn.  SC in 1st stitch from hook, and single crochet to the end.
7) Tie off and weave in ends.  Finish with fringe, if desired.

I worked this in a blue and green variegated yarn, and I wanted to make something reminiscent of a waterfall.  I decided to work the scarf long-ways to enhance the waterfall-y-ness of it, and I think I succeeded.  Too bad I didn’t take a picture.
