Simple Blue Scarf

My Granddaughter turned 18 this month and so I decided to crochet her a scarf. She loves the scarfs I make her from the fun fur to the warm ones and all in between. This one is for warmth with hopefully enough fashion to be worn with anything.

This is a simple pattern but looks elegant.
Caron's Simply Soft yarn in your choice of color ( I used ocean though here it looks really blue)
size J hook
Row 1 ch 250
Row 2 hdc in 2nd ch from hook and ea ch across
Row 3- 4 ch 2 turn, hdc in first hdc and ea hdc across
Row 5 ch 2 turn, hdc in first hdc, ch 1, sk next hdc, hdc in next hdc, *ch 1 sk next hdc, hdc in next hdc repeat in pattern from * to end
Row 6 ch 2 turn, hdc in ea hdc and ch 1 space across
Row 7 ch 2 turn hdc in ea hdc across
Row 8-9 repeat row 7
Repeat rows 5-9 two times more then fasten off and weave in ends.
I made this scarf long so that she can wear it in many different ways.
This would also be easy to make into a cowl by sewing the ends together when finished.
It was simple, easy and fast and I plan on making more for presents. This would also be an easy pattern to make several for gifts to shelters.
I wrote these instructions down after I made this so I am hoping the instructions are accurate.
This is my own pattern and feel free to use but please give me credit
Thanks and happy crocheting
