In half double crochet, 11 sts and 13 rows = 4"/10cm.

Chain (ch), half double crochet (hdc)


spike-hdc: Spike half double crochet – Yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch 2 rows below, yarn over and draw up a loop to level of work, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook. Notes: Take care to draw the loop up to the current row height so that the stitch doesn't pull downwards. Do not work into the corresponding stitch in the current working row. The row into which a stitch is usually worked is "1 row below" the current row (being worked). A stitch "2 rows below" is in the row immediately beneath the row into which a stitch would usually be worked.

I thank you for sharing this; I have a brother and sister-in-law on church missions in Salt Lake City and it has been a brutal winter! They will enjoy these if I can just get'em made and sent to them before summertime!

I would like to say that that scarf looks lovely and I like the colours. But for all the pictures of the knitted items, I find it difficult to see the real beauty, because I can't enlarge the pictures!! Usually in other sites, there is a possibility to enlarge the pictures!!!
