Measurements:
6 1/2” wide by 5’ long, excluding tassels

Gauge:
Gauge is not particularly important. Rows 3-6 (this is the pattern repeat) should be as close to 5 1/2” wide as possible. Each pattern repeat adds about 2” of length to your scarf.

Additional Notes:
-Because it is so textured, keeping a tighter tension over all while crocheting this will help the design stay more flat which means it will catch on fewer things. It’s especially important when making the chains for the Vs so they don’t get floppy.
-This is a piece for special occasions, and not the scarf to wear if you will be hauling wood for the fire, romping with pets, or playing with little ones who want to drive their toy cars or plastic horses along your personage (as a mom of boys this was definitely a significant stage in my life!). No matter how nice and neat you make your stitches, they WILL get snagged by tiny toys/squishy baby fingers, and pet paws.
-This scarf was made shorter that most of my scarves on purpose to help keep then ends from dragging along surfaces and getting pulled or snagged. You can most likely make this scarf another foot longer if you wish (3 balls of Paintbox Yarns Simply DK should allow for this), but you may find it catching on things if you’re not careful.
-I have put together directions for fancy tassels to go along with this. You may choose to spend a little extra time and make them for your piece, or go with a more traditional tassel if you prefer.
