Subtle Stripe Scarf

I have been busy crocheting up a storm, the latest charity project nearly done. I decided that I love the way it's coming out and thought you, my readers, would enjoy a simple pattern that sort of "stripes" up as you go. What I also like about it, mostly for beginner crocheters, is that it encourages counting -- simple counting that will aid in the learning crochet experience!  And, the scarf is created out of the most basics of crochet stitches: the single crochet, half-double crochet and the double.  Go ahead and give it a try! 60 Scarves in 60 Days The scarf I have pictured will go towards the 60 Scarves in 60 Days drive that ends on November 30th

Ch 16

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in next 4 ch, hdc in next 5 chs, dc in remaining 5 stitches.  (15 sts)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn work, sc in ea dc st, hdc in ea hdc st, dc in each sc st. (15 sts)

Repeat Row 2 to desired length.  The scarf will work up looking like a subtle row was added in the middle.  Enjoy -- it works up very fast!  :)

 I used your pattern and it went great:) I would do 10 rows then change colors. It went very quickly, it took me maybe 6 hours to finish one:) Thanks for the great pattern! Still your student, Sherri
