Scarfs Scarfs and more Scarfs

At Christmas I decided to make scarfs for different ones and once I get started making them I don't want to stop. I love that you can make so many different ones and it is instant almost gratification. Every scarf I made can be made in just a matter of hours. Over the weekend I can do at least two with out trying really. I will post a few of my patterns that I used but I didn't get pictures of them just didn't think to do that before I gave them away. I will remake them and add pictures later.

First Scarf
Mom's warm Scarf

1 skein Red Heart Super Saver any color you like ( you won't use all of it can get probably two scarfs out of one skein)
N Hook

With N hook ch 22
Row 1 hdc in 2nd ch from hk and ea ch across (21 hdc)
Row 2 ch 2 turn (not first hdc) hdc in blo of first hdc and ea hdc across (21 hdc)
Row 3-4 ch 2 turn hdc in blo of ea hdc across (21 hdc)
Row 5 ch 3 turn (counts as first dc) sk next hdc, dc in next hdc then dc in skipped hdc (cross stitch made), dc next hdc, cross st over next 2 hdc, continue in this pattern to end of row (21 stitches)
Row 6 ch 3 turn, * sk next dc, dc in next dc then dc in skipped dc ( cross st made), dc in next dc then repeat from * across to end of row
Row 7-10 ch 2 not first hdc, hdc in blo of ea st across
Repeat rows 5-10 until desired length
Mom's scarf was 80 rows ending with 4 hdc rows
At end of last row you can finish off if you like or like I did twist the beginning and sew the last and first row together with sl st. finish off and weave in ends

As always I try not to make any mistakes in writing the pattern down but since I do it after I make the scarf it is possible that I make mistakes. I hope you like it and try it
