Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum & fairly new to crochet too. I know how to make amigurumi but I want to branch out into other forms of crochet & I've found a scarf that I love but I'm not sure how to start it. Does the foundation chain go down the middle of the scarf as long as you want the scarf to be & then crochet on either side of that chain or does the chain stay on one edge of the scarf & then you crochet on one side of the chain only to expand the scarfs width or do you make the chain the width that you want the scarf to be & go from there?

As you can see I have no idea, I only know how to crochet in rounds. Here is the pattern & a photo of the scarf I want to attempt, I think it may have come from this site originally but I don't know who wrote the pattern & I don't have the link sorry, I found this on another forum.



ETA: http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?p=927415 (if this is not the correct original source for this pattern, please let me know and I'll fix it - fantasticmio)




Can someone please explain to me how to get started?

OK, to get started just start making a chain, KEEP COUNT.  When it gets to about the length you want it, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MULTIPLE OF 6 in chains, then add 4.  From there work the first row as it says.  Its worked in halves.  So you work the left half first, then work in the foundation row for the second half.  Hope thats helped a bit
