I made the pictured scarf for my husband. I used Vanna's Choice yarn and a "J" hook. More pictures and information is written in my blog post...

Thanks for looking! :)

[FONT="]— [/FONT]Sc across; ch 1, turn
[FONT="]— [/FONT]Ss across; fasten off
[FONT="]— [/FONT]Go back to start of scarf and ss on row 1; fasten off

Weave in ends

*Note: As an alternative, you could do the sc rows, in the textured band series, in a different color to add interest. My husband tends to be conservative in dress, so I kept with a solid color.

Hi. Love this pattern! As a newbie who's just starting to understand patterns do have a question though...

on rows 2, 6 and 7 when it says to sc across, then makes note to either sc in last st and/or sc in last 2 st, doesn't that just mean to sc across the rest of the row? Or am I missing a detail?

Can't wait to get this project done- will be a Christmas gift for the honey! :)
Thanks in advance!
Heidi

Hi Heidi, thanks for your nice compliment. I don't have a lot of experience writing patterns, so I may have written it wrong. What I mean in those rows is this:

Row 2, 6 & 7 - the two sc at the start of the row are what I'll call grounding stitches. Then you alternate dc, sc across (that's what gives the texture) and then you'll be ending the sequence with one additional sc (as in row 2 & 6) or two additional sc (as in row 7).

I'll try to write that part out more clearly. Let me know if you have any other questions and I hope that helps.

Thanks again. :)
