5.5mm (I) hook, or hook needed to obtain measurements.
500-525 yards of Red Heart Super Saver or Red Heart With Love (for a scarf that is about 6″ wide)
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
Stitching in the “3rd loop” of hdc. 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.
8 ft long (based on a starting chain of 301) by 6″ wide.
-Several people have asked how to shorten this pattern. Try 192 stitches (193 chains) for a 5′ scarf, and 228 stitches (229 chains) for a 6′ scarf. You could even make a longer scarf, just make sure your starting chain number is divisible by 3 + 1 (the first two chains of the row count as a stitch).
-Ch 2, and ch 3 do count as first stitch of row unless otherwise indicated.
-With the previous note in mind, I’ve put turning instructions at the beginning of the row to hopefully make things easier for beginners working this pattern. This keeps rows all together.

Your scarf should measure about 3 1/4″ wide, and 102″ long at this point. You can continue repeating rows 3-6 again* or add the edging.
*You could even keep repeating this pattern until you have an Afghan!
After finishing row 6 repeat, ch 1, turn, and sl st over into 2nd stitch of row, [sc, ch 2, sc] in 2nd stitch, *skip 2 stitches, [sc, ch 2, sc] in next Repeat this pattern around the outside of the scarf. When you get to corners you should have 1 stitch left, sl st into it and start your next [sc, ch 2, sc] group in the first stitch along the edge. With 2 repeats, and the edging added, my scarf measured about 6″ wide, had 100 “bumps” along each side and 8 across each end. Join to first sl st.
Cut yarn, and weave in ends.
