Keeps going to a stupid site, no pattern there please help

I want to try this pattern out. I am just learning to crochet and this scarf seems simple enough for me!

Jennifer, I hope you've been able to try this pattern since your post in December, I haven't tried this pattern yet but after looking at it looks super simple and you could customize it with stripes once you get good at changing colors. I practiced all the time when I first started by making scarves, I felt confident in making the flat and straight rows instead of worrying about curves in my patterns. Good luck!

Sorry, I figured it out.

I will try this pattern when I have more skeins of yarn

.....Oops, rather "each ch 1 sp across". Thanks.

I am a beginner and I don't understand round 2. Please assist me.

Can you please explain to me the second row with the 1 chain space? I am a little confused at this point. Thanks A beginner. :-)

I am a senior citizen (young one. LOL) and in a beginner crochet class at church. Just finished this scarf. It is great!!! Great for gifts. Always wanted to crochet but work and family never allowed for the time.

thank you very,very much. my grand child has been looking for one that is simple this is the one. Thank you.

This looks exactly like the very first scarf I ever crocheted. Sure glad my mom taught me!!

Glad my mom taught me too!!!
