Hi - I'm hoping one of you more experienced crocheters out there can give me a quick tip!  This is a newbie question that's probably more generally about how to crochet, but I'm running into it on the One-Skein scarf.  After the three rows of double crochet and one row of shell stitch, the pattern calls for you to turn the corner and do the shell stitch back down the other side, which ends up being the bottom of the chain row that you've already dc'ed into from the other direction.  Into what part of the chain do I now do the shell stitch?  Just into the "butt" of each chain that is left over after crocheting into the chain from the first time?  I had tried the project one other time with a different yarn, and stopped, partly because I was running out of yarn, and partly because I didn't feel sure about how to proceed at that point...so any tips from you more seasoned folks would be very helpful.  Smiley  Thanks!

Hi-
What I always do (and I've made probably 20 of these already haha) is when you get to the end of the first row of shells, slip stitch into the corner, shell around the middle post on the side (i.e. the last dc of the 2nd dc row), sl st into the next corner, and then shell stitch into the loops of the foundation chain that were unused when you made the first row (so yeah I guess that's what you mean by "butt"?)  It might look a little strange at first because the chain might seem looser and like the scarf might look assymetrical, but it looks fine when it is completed.
Hope this helps!

Thanks, Alichka - that is very helpful!  That's where I got stuck, when crocheting in the one remaining loop of the chain made things look looser and yes, a little asymmetrical, so I thought it might be wrong.  But I'll just keep going knowing that's correct!  This is a fun pattern - and so quick to make, even for a newbie! - so I'm sure I will be making others as well.   Wink
