Shell Scarf, Skinny and Wide

So, over Christmas, we were visiting my inlaws in Nebraska. It was great. I love my inlaws! As an added bonus, I got to sit and crochet, a LOT. I got to try new patterns, and even make up some of my own!  I was asked by someone if they could buy the pattern for an item in my Etsy Shop.  But, as that pattern was not originally mine, I wouldn't ever sell it! But, I'll link it here for you all!

This was the scarf that I made from a pattern on Crochet Mama's Blog. The pattern for ^^ Scarf can be found here:

After I'd mastered this one, and did a little math, I decided to try my hand at re-working it into a wider scarf. The one in the pattern above has four shells across. Mine, which I'll share shortly, has 6 Shells across.

Both scarves that I made, were made with one skein of Caron Simply Soft. I used an H hook. I just crocheted until I only had enough yarn left to sew the two ends together to make in an infinity scarf.

Here's Mine:

 You can see that it's just a bit wider, and because it was my plan to still only use one skein of Caron Simply Soft, it is a bit shorter.

So, the pattern for the wider scarf, written by me (my first one ever!) is as follows:

Ch 24
4 dc in the 4th ch from the hook
*Skip 3 ch
5 dc in the next ch*

Repeat from * to * across. You should have 6 shells, making the last set of 5 dc in the last chain.

**Ch 3
4dc in the center (3rd stitch)  dc of the first shell
5 dc in the center (3rd stitch) dc of each shell from the previous row.**

repeat from ** to ** until you run out of yarn or reach your desired length. then fold the scarf in half, and either single crochet or stitch through the two ends, joining them together.

 That's It! Simple!

If you have any questions about this pattern, please let me know! Please do NOT redistribute the pattern, but feel free to link back here! You may sell any items you make with this pattern.
