How to make your baby scarf

Make 21 ch

repeat ROW 2 until your work measures about 25 inches

Do not work the tc at the end of the last row.

Finish by breaking the yarn (leave a few inches). Thread this yarn through the last stitch and pull to tighten.

using a large blunt needle darn in the loose ends of yarn

Variations on the baby scarf

More experienced crocheters might like to add a few fancy stitches to make the scarf a little prettier.

When you have finished the last row, add shell and picot edgings like this:

Make 1ch

Working down side edge, *work 3 double crochet (dc) (US single crochet)

make 2ch, slip stitch into place where last dc was worked**

repeat from * to ** all down the side edge

Now work shell stitch along short edge:

make 1ch work 1 treble (tr) (US double crochet) into first stitch *miss 2 stitches. 5 tr into next stitch, miss 2 stitches, 1tr in next stitch**

repeat from * to ** twice more.

repeat the picot and shell edges on the other 2 sides.

Fasten off and darn in loose ends.
