The first half of the scarf uses 1/2 skein middle color and the 2 darkest colors. The second half of the scarf uses the other 1/2 skein of middle color and the 2 lightest color skeins of yarn.

Comments
  • The last stitch is either placed in the top of the turning chain, ie if you are told to ch 3 then start the pattern in the next stitch, the 3rd ch is “top of the turning chain”, or in the last stitch, this happens when the turning chain is a chain 1 or chain 2. If you turn the row with a chain 1, the first stitch of the new row is the last stitch of the row just completed. The chain 2 use is most often used with double crochet work as the turning chain. The chain two does not count as a double crochet stitch, so the last stitch of the row just finished is used for the first stitch of the new row. If the chain 3 turning method is used, the last stitch of the row just finished should have been made in the top 3rd chain of the previous row. As you chain 3 for the turn, the last double crochet stitch of the row just finished is skipped and the next double crochet is where you place your first double crochet stitch. The chain 3 turning on the new row equals a double crochet stitch and is aligned with the last double crochet stitch.
    I hope this a clear explanation .
