This easy 2" x 74" scarf is crocheted in solid shell stitch and is an example of the use of remaining loops partway through the pattern.
Materials: Worsted weight yarn, US size H hook
Starting Chain: Leaving a strand of yarn for fringe, ch 272.
Row 1: Working in one loop only of each chain, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in ea ch across. (271 sc)
Row 2: ch 1 to turn, sc in first sc, * skip next 2 sc, 5 dc in next sc, skip next 2 sc, sc in next sc **, repeat the directions between * and ** across the row.
Row 3: ch 3 to turn (counts as first dc), make two more dc in the same place (in the first stitch of this row), * skip 2 dc, sc in next dc, skip 2 dc, 5 dc in next sc **, repeat the directions between * and ** across the row until one group of 5 dc and one sc remains, then skip 2 dc, sc in next dc, skip 2 dc, 3 dc in last sc. End off, leaving a strand of yarn for fringe.
Next: Turn the piece over, so that the starting chain edge is facing up, to be worked in next.
