the new instructions are GREAT!!! Now I'll make a bunch of these (in no-time-at-all).

I am so glad to see that I was not the ONLY one who was thoroughly confused by these instructions. Now, I will try the revised insturctions (and I'll try it with bulky yarn).

Easy??? yeah, not really ... one of the most confusing patterns I've ever seen. I started to follow the one in the comments section, that made most sense, but the scarf was supposed to be 60" long. Mine was working up to be about 46". NOT long enough to be a scarf.. yep. Froging this one :(

I tried to print the new instructions and it won't print. I am going to try the first set of instructions but it would be very helpful if I could print all of it.

This pattern was so confusing for so many people that I re-wrote it (with a slight alteration): To make this scarf you will work all of the way around the foundation chain without turning, with right side facing the whole way. The effect will be like a long oval or a link chain with fans going of all the way around it. For this reason, instead of rows there will be steps. sc=single crochet, ch=chain, sk=skip, sl st=slip stitch, yo=yarn over, dtr=double treble Make a foundation chain of 186. Step 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from the hook. *Ch 3, skip next 3 ch stitches, 1 sc in next ch stitch* Repeat from * across entire chain. This has created a new base chain. Most of the stitches will be made into the large gaps. Step 2: This step will create the fan at one end of the scarf. Ch 8, sl st into 3rd ch from the hook. This will count as the first dtr with picot. *Ch 1, yarn over 4 times, insert hook into the first sc at the end of the original foundation chain, yo and pull a loop through. You now have 6 loops on your hook. Yo and pull through 2 loops, repeat 5 times. This has created the dtr. Ch 3, sl st in top of dtr. This has created the picot.* Repeat from * 8 times for a total of 9 dtr with picots. Step 3: Do not turn. You will work across the other side of your new base chain. *Sk next ch 3 gap, 3 sc in next ch 3 gap, sk next ch 3 gap, dtr with picot into next ch 3 gap 9 times* Repeat across until you get to the last two ch 3 gaps. Step 4: Sk next ch 3 gap, 1 sc in ch between gaps, sk last gap. Dtr with picot 9 times into last sc of the original foundation chain, creating the fan at the other end of the scarf. Step 5: You will continue around, now working across the other side of the work. *Sk next ch 3 gap, 3 sc in next ch 3 gap, sk next ch 3 gap, dtr with picot into next ch 3 gap 9 times* Repeat across until you get to the last two ch 3 gaps. Step 6: Sk next ch 3 gap, 1 sc in ch between gaps, sk last gap. Join with sl st in 5th ch of ch 8 that was created at the beginning of step 2 (the very first dtr). Fasten off and weave in ends.


I really want to make this scarf, but cannot understand the directions. What is Yoh? Does it mean yarn over hook? Is it explaining how to make a Dtr?

I dont understand. These directions r really confusing. I tried to piece it together and my scarf looks good so far but i'm lost and i dont know how to finish it :/

If you use thicker yarn and larger needles it's very nice also!

monetgardening 6515630

i love this pattern. but. i got lost after i chained 8 at end of first row. i started 2nd row but i only started making it longer. do i start my dtr and picots in the first row before the chain 8 stitches? HEEEELLPP
