Winter is fast approaching and the mornings are starting to get cold, so the turning of seasons inspired me to make this scarf.  I made one for my cousin for her birthday and it's pretty quick.

This is the first pattern I've made, so any constructive comments would be much appreciated.

This is made from 4-ply acrylic medium weight worsted yarn; two colors totaling to about 1 skein.  I used an H hook.  

In a nutshell, here is the pattern for a single color.  If you want to know how I added a different color or how to weave through rows to interchange colors, please see the tutorial.

These are the stitches I used:
CH- chain
SC- single crochet
BST (this is one that I made up to stand for Back Stitch): CH2, SC in front loop of first chain
DC - double crochet
FPDC- front post double crochet

Row 1: BST 10
Row 2: CH3, (DC in same chain that the next SC is in, BST)X9, 2 DC in chain of last SC
Rows 3 -? (however long you want): CH3 and turn, (FPDC, BST)X9, FPDC, DC on top of last DC (not in the CH3)

The scarf seen on the pic has 50 rows, and from start to finish, the project takes about 2 hours.

I really like this neck warmer. What is the base chain? Is it 10 like for row 1? Or do you BST:Ch 2, sc in front loop of first chain for your fondation? Seems pretty easy, but I get confused easy too. Smiley

Hi Kat - Thank you.  The base chain is row 1, which just repeats "CH 2, SC in front loop of first chain" ten times.
