Crochet Hook: J/10 or 6 mm hook

Yarn Weight: (6) Super Bulky/Super Chunky (4-11 stitches for 4 inches)

The technique used to make this scarf does not allow us to give exact measurements.

Untwist yarn hank and lay out in a circle. Snip off string holding hank together. Wrap yarn loosely into a ball. Open up tube as you crochet spacing stitches two inches apart and working with the top two or three threads. Ends can be hidden when scarf is complete by turning under and stitching with needle and thread.

Ch 3.
Row 1: Slip st in second ch from hook and each chain across.
Ch 1 and turn.
Repeat Row 1 until you have 3 to 4 inches of yarn remaining.

Turn under remaining end of yarn. Sew with needle and thread to secure. Repeat for beginning yarn end.

This looks lovely, but I don't understand the instructions. A demo video would be great.

how on earth can these directions make a scarf?

Try this pattern, it should work, I have used it and made quite a few. It's quite easy. Chain 110. Row 1: Double crochet in 4th chain from hook, *double crochet in next chain, 2 double crochet in next chain; repeat from * across. Row 2: Chain 3, turn, double crochet in same space, *double crochet in next 2 double crochet, 2 double crochet in next double crochet; repeat from * across. Row 3: Chain 3, turn, double crochet in same space, *double crochet in next 3 double crochet, 2 double crochet in next double crochet; repeat from * across. Row 4: Chain 3, turn, double crochet in same space, *double crochet in next 4 double crochet, 2 double crochet in next double crochet; repeat from * across. Fasten off. FINISHING Weave in ends.

where is the instructions for this pattern?

New it was miss some pattern like chain 200. Didn't make sance plus others are missing too.

please learn to spell before posting on a public place

Oops I think you forgot something - like the whole pattern. How about this: Ch 200 Row 1: Ch3 (counts as first dc here and throughout) turn, dc in in 4th ch from hook, 2dc in each remaining st across (400dcs) Row 2: Ch3 turn, dc in turning space, 1dc in next st, *2dc in next stitch, 1dc in next stitch rep from * until end (600dcs) Row 3: Ch3 turn, dc in turning space, 1dc in next 2 stitches, *2dc in next stitch, 1dc in next 2 stitches rep from * until end (800dcs) Row 4: Repeat Row 3 (1065dcs) Weave in Ends

I agree with all of the above!!! IMPOSSIBLE

I think there are alot of directions missing on this pattern. 8-27-13

I've been crocheting for over 20 years and can not complete this scarf with these instructions. Please check the pattern.

How can you start with just 3 chains.

I agree with all that how can you only ch 3 and ..... lovly scarf but please explain in more detail and more understandable thanks

How can you only ch. 3 and then slip st in second ch from hook and chain across? Shouldn't you ch more than 3?

I am a pretty accomplished crocheter, but I have no idea what these instructions talk about? Anyone have a clue?

A big problem with this website...inadequate or incomplete instructions. Does the creator of this page even bother checking her/his work? Doubt it.

I don't understand about untwisting yarn hank and lay it out in a circle. I also don't understand how you can start with a ch 3 slip st in second ch from hook and each ch across, c1 and turn, and reeating until you have 3 to 4 inches remaining will give you a beautiful ruffled scarf.

I have found that opening the yarn and wrapping it around a water bottle makes the crocheting faster. I have made many scarf's and only one by not opening it up first.
