    My comments are on page one . simply put there are no chain stitches in row three, therefore it is impossible to work row two over the existing row 3 after the first time. see the previous page

    Thanks for the pattern. I love it and I’m sure I will make the scarf before the summer is over.

    I just wanted to comment that I noticed a mistake in the instructions for this scarf. The instructions for the picot v stitch states that after inserting hook down through top of dc just made (3 loops on hook), sl st to close, dc in same st. There are not 3 loops on the hook at all. It took me a while to figure that out. There are 3 chains, but no loops. I think it would be more clear to say dc in same ch 2 space after completing picot. Just thought I would mention that because beginner crocheters might not understand that. Thank You.

      Thank you for your comment. When working the Picot V Stitch, there should be 2 loops on the hook.

    It would be helpful if the yarn WEIGHT was noted, and not just the specific yarn used. Then I would be able to go directly to my stash and see if I already had something appropriate for the pattern.
