To work this pattern you will need to be comfortable Stitching in the “3rd loop” of a hdc. Directions: After turning, work all stitches for that row in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous row (it will be in the front). Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.For this scarf the textured portion created by working hdc in the 3rd loop should always be facing you when beginning a new row where hdc stitches are called for.

Gauge:
17 hdc in 4″

Measurements:
Approximately 5, 6, or 7 ft long by 6” wide.

Additional Notes:
-ch 1 does not count as stitch.
-This scarf’s “3rd loop” texture will only be visible from the front side. When the pattern asks you to cut your working yarn and attach it to the opposite end, please make sure you are still working with the front of the scarf facing you!
