I really fell in love with these colors while creating this set. Theres something so feminine about it that just makes me think of tulips .... or sweetheart roses...... Maybe Im just in some sort of desperate need for color other than the colors that are surrounding me right now in the dog days of a harsh northern Minnesota winter..... something that speaks to the coming of spring.
This scarf works up really quickly and you can decide for yourself how wide, or even how long you would like it :) Settle in, grab your hooks and some scrumptious yarn and lets get hookin'. Dont forget to pop on over and visit me at Strings and Things on Facebook..... check out whats up coming for patterns, share your work or just say "Hi!"

3 colors worsted weight yarn (I used I Love This Yarn! in Color A: Black, Color B: Hot Rose, Color C: Pink)
Let's Get Started :)
This stitch is a multiple of 2 which means as long as you keep it at an ebven number, the length is all up to you. I wanted mine to wrap 3 times so my starting chain was 200.
Color A: Ch 200 and join to form a large loop *dont twist* Chain 3
Double Crochet in each chain around until you get to the first chain 3. Slip stitch into the top of the chain 3 and chain 1.
Round 2: Sc in first dc, *chain 2, sk 2 dc, sc in next sp.* repeat from *-* all the way around joining the last sc with the first starting sc while joining color B. chain 3 with new color and turn.
Round 3: 3 dc in first ch 2 space and in each chain 2 space all the way around until last chain 2 space. 2 dc in last ch 2 space, join to first dc while also joining Color A. Chain 1, turn.
Round 4: Sc in first dc, *chain 2, sk 2 sc, sc in next dc sp.* repeat from *-* all the way around joining the last sc with the first starting sc while joining color C. chain 3 with new color and turn.
Round 5: 3 dc in first ch 2 space and in each chain 2 space all the way around until last chain 2 space. 2 dc in last ch 2 space, join to first dc while also joining Color A. Chain 1, turn.
Repeat rows 2-5 as many times as your desired thickness.
Finishing rows: *using color A*
Sc in next dc, skip 1 dc and sc in dc space. *Sc in the top of the next middle dc, skip 1 dc and sc in the dc space*. *repeat around* Slip stitch into first sc. Chain 3 and dc in each sc all the way around.
