Introduction

I was looking at a bag of yarn my grandmother gave me, filled with 25 rolls of yarn in all sorts of colors. I shoved my hand in and pulled out a bright red yarn and decided that I needed a matching scarf for a hat I made about 2 months ago in the same color. I introduce to you the CHECKERBOARD SCARF! :-D

I asked my sister to model the scarf and with that she pressed it against her stomach so you can see the stitch better. The flash on my camera was making it very hard to see the stitch.

Materials List

Size K 6.5 mm Boye hook
2 balls of red yarn

A good memory! and some patience =].

Finished Size

Any size you want this scarf is versatile!

Gauge

no specific gauge feel free to expand.

Notes

Checkerboard stitch. Ch 24+3 as your turning chain. DC in 2nd ch from hook (DO NOT DC IN THE ADDED 3!!!) Dc in next 2 chs (you should have 3 DC's now) *ch 2, skip 2, dc in next 3 sts. Repeat from *.

The Pattern

Ch 24 (or any multiple of six, but make sure to add 3 as ur turning chain. It is very important that you remember this!

Row 1: dc in next 3, ch 2, skip 2. repeat to end, ch 3 turn.
Row 2:skip first dc, dc in 2nd dc, 2 DC IN ch 2 sp(this gives you 3 dc's.) repeat to end.
*MAKE SURE YOU DOUBLE CROCHET IN THE CH 2 SPACES AND NOT THE CHAINS ITSELF. THIS WILL GIVE THE SCARF AN ODD SHAPE!*

repeat row 2 until scarf is desired length. finish off & weave in ends.

If you have any questions about this pattern please contact me and I will try to explain it better to the best of my ability.

On one end of my scarf I crocheted a heart and stitched it on. to get the heart pattern I used go to this website: http://www.karpstyles.com/crochet/heart1.html I only used the heart directions i didnt try the granny square.

Enjoy!
