- 1 ball Vanna's Choice Yarn: Rose
- Size J-10 (6 mm) Lion Brand Crochet Hook
Gauge: 13 dc + 6 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Scarf measures about 2 1/4 x 55 in.
- Ch 143.
- Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 142 sc at the end of this row.
- Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as dc here and throughout), turn, 2 dc in first sc, *dc in next sc, 2 dc in next sc; rep from * across to last sc, dc in last sc – 214 dc at the end of this row.
- Row 3: Ch 2, turn, 2 dc in first dc, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc; rep from * across to last dc, dc in last dc – 322 dc at the end of this row.

As a newby to crocheting I found this pattern easy to follow. I just got done making this for my grand daughter. The scarf came out perfect, I actually added a 5th row to it. I ch 2 turned do 2 dc in the 1st sc, then do 3 dc in the next 3 sc, then 2dc in the next sc and repeat until the end and tie off. I would upload a photo if I could.

The blunt eye needle is used to weave in the tails from the beginning and end of your scarf. I suspect they put six in there because they are sold in a package of six? That's all I can think it could be.

@Member 15586 Thank you so much for the comment! That was the only thing I could think of as well. I double checked the pattern on the Lion Brand Website and they were listed there, too. I reviewed the pattern and didn't see another use for the needles, so I removed it from the materials list. Thanks for the comment!

How could I make this pattern wider? Thanks
Oct 09, 2012
@lingthomas7 Since this scarf is worked across rather than up and down (like a normal scarf), all you need to do to make it wider is to repeat rows 2 and 3 until it's the length you want, then finish with row 4.

@jwhite22 Good question! I double checked the pattern on the Lion Brand Website and they were listed there, as well. I reviewed the pattern and didn't see a use for the needles, so I removed it from the materials list. Thanks for the comment!
