*The pattern instructions are for a toddler scarf, but this could easily be converted to a woman's scarf-which I plan to do shortly!
*Red Heart Yarn in Gold
R1: DC in 3rd chain from the hook, and in each chain across. Ch 3, turn.
R2-R60: DC in front loop only of each stitch across. Ch 3, turn.
|Crocheting only in the front loops creates "Free Loops" in which you will create ruffles later on.|
3 DC around the last DC of previous row, as shown in picture.
|3 DC on the edge of the scarf, crocheted over the last DC of that row|
Now you will begin to work in the free loops (abbreviated FL for the remainder of pattern). 3 DC in each FL across. 3 DC around last DC to move on to next row. This requires turning the work, as the next row of FL is on the opposite side. Continue spiraling around the scarf to in like manner to it's end.
