Pattern Notes: This pattern is worked in turned rows building the length from the short side. It may be helpful to use stitch markers to mark skipped stitches. You can remove the stitch markers once you have stitched around (post stitching) the marked stitches.  Edging is not needed as you will be using a standing dc to start rows. 

 

Pattern:

Chain 25.

 

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc across, turn (24 sc)

 

Row 2: standing dc in 1st sc, dc across, turn (24 dc) *SEE PICTURE BELOW*

Row 3: standing dc in 1st dc, fpdc around next dc, dc in next dc, fpdc around next 6 dc, dc in next dc, fpdc around next dc, dc in next 2 dc, fpdc around next dc, dc in next dc, fpdc around next 6 dc, dc in next dc, fpdc around next dc, dc in next dc, turn (24 stitches) *SEE PICTURE BELOW*

 Some stitches (the post stitches) may seem slightly sunken and will appear slightly raised on the RS. The texture will become more pronounced as more rows are added. 

Row 4 (bptc crossover section): standing dc in 1st dc, bpdc around next stitch, dc in next dc, skip next 3 stitches, bptc around next 3 stitches *SEE PICTURE A*, bptc around 1st skipped stitch, bptc around 2nd skipped stitch, bptc around 3rd skipped stitch *SEE PICTURE B*, dc in next dc, bpdc around next stitch, dc in next 2 dc, bpdc around next stitch, dc in next dc *SEE PICTURE C*, skip next 3 stitches, bptc around next 3 stitches, stitching in front of last 3 stitches bptc around 1st skipped stitch, bptc around 2nd skipped stitch, bptc around 3rd skipped stitch,, dc in next dc, bpdc around next stitch, dc in next, *SEE PICTURE D* turn (24 stitches) *SEE PICTURE E (WS) and PICTURE F (RS)  for whole row*

PICTURE A: Use stitch markers to mark your 3 skipped stitches so you can find them easily. Remove the markers as you stitch around each skipped stitch. Start by stitching around the 1st skipped stitch which will be the farthest skipped stitch to the right assuming you are right handed, opposite for lefties :) )

PICTURE B: This figure shows the 1st crossover bptc placed around the 1st skipped stitch. You will be stitching across (crossing over the top of) the first 3 bptc.

PICTURE C: This figure shows the completed cross over section from the WS (the side facing you for this row). You may find the top edge of your scarf rippling a bit as you complete the bptc crossover section. This is to be expected and will correct itself on the next row.

PICTURE E: WS of completed row 4

 PICTURE F: RS of completed row 4

Row 5: standing dc in 1st dc, fpdc around next stitch, dc in next dc, fpdc around next 6 stitches *SEE PICTURES G AND H*, dc in next dc, fpdc around next stitch, dc in next 2 dc, fpdc around next stitch, dc in next dc, fpdc around next 6 stitches, dc in next dc, fpdc around next stitch, dc in next dc, turn (24 stitches) *SEE PICTURE I*

PICTURE H: fpdc around the next 3 tc (the last 3 tc of the crossover section).

PICTURE L: Use stitch markers to mark your 3 skipped stitches so you can find them easily. Remove the markers as you stitch around each skipped stitch. Start by stitching around the 1st skipped stitch which will be the farthest skipped stitch to the right assuming you are right handed, opposite for lefties :) )

PICTURE M: This figure shows the completed cross over section from the RS (the side facing you for this row). You may find the top edge of your scarf rippling a bit as you complete the fptc crossover section. This is to be expected and will correct itself on the next row.  

PICTURE N: Completed  row 7 from the RS (the side you facing you for this row).

Row 8: repeat row 6

 

Row 9: repeat row 5

 

Repeat rows 4-9 for a total of 12 sets (Increase or decrease number of sets as desired but make sure you end on a repeat of round 5 or 6. 12 sets will make the scarf around 6 ft long without fringe)

 

Last Row: sc across, fasten off (24 scs)

 

Fringe if desired.

 

To make fringe: 

Step 1: Cut yarn into 72 10” pieces (36 pieces are needed for each side).

Step 2: Group 3 strand of yarn together evenly and fold in half so that the ends meet and a loop is formed in the center.

Step 3: With WS facing you, use your hook to pull the loop partially through the 1st sc on the short end (your first or last row) of the scarf.

Step 4: Remove your hook and use your fingers to pull the tails of the yarn through the loop, tightening the loop gently in place.

Step 5: Skip a stitch and repeat Steps 1-4. Repeat skipping a stitch between each fringed stitch to the end of the row.

Step 6: Trim the end of your fringe so that they are even or as desired.
