PATTERN NOTES The instructions and notes of this pattern are intended for a beginner crocheter who may be encountering new stitch types for the first time. This scarf is worked in sections from the bottom up. The stitch guide presents first the types of stitches you will encounter, then the stitch patterns in the order they are worked in the scarf. The actual pattern begins on page 4, after the Stitch Guide. Please note that some stitch patterns have right sides and wrong sides to pay attention to. It is recommended that you use unique stitch markers to mark the right and wrong sides of the scarf.
The scarf is worked in sections with a new color per section, as well as varying stitch counts per section. You will simply skip or add a stitch in the first row for each section. This will block out evenly in finishing.
The stitch patterns found in the stitch guide all start with a base number of chains for you to practice them individually. When working these patterns in the scarf, you will work across stitches, not chains. When reading Row 1 of the stitch guides to make the scarf, you will always start by placing the starting stitch in the 1st stitch of the row.
