Pattern Notes

Scarf is worked in two halves from a center Foundation Row out to each end.

Work stitch pattern over a multiple of 10 sts + 5 to adjust width from a scarf to a wrap.

On Row 1 of Second Half of Scarf, when directed to work in base of dc, you will separate the legs at the base of dc and work simultaneously between the legs and over foundation ch. You will also do the same thing when working in the base of the last cl of this row. This will prevent gaping holes in the center back where scarf halves come together.
