2021 Here We Go Again Scarf Pattern is my first free pattern for 2021.
I chose this name to mark the start of our 6th annual scarf of the month crochet along.
Now it just seems ironic because we just moved into a State of Emergency (our second) with a minimum 28-day stay-at-home order in place on Thursday.
I’m trying to stay positive, although like everyone I am utterly exhausted and tired of the situation we are all facing. I’m trying to be gentle with myself, to get a bit of extra sleep, to bake and do crafts and watch some of my favorite shows and movies and to appreciate the moments I’m getting with my children (who are learning from home) and my husband (who is an essential worker). I’m trying not to waste these moments.
Wishing you good health, love and happiness this year. xo Rhondda

This scarf is worked lengthwise, in rows.
Using your 6.5 mm (K) hook (or size required for gauge) and leaving an 8-10 inch yarn tail:
R1: Ch 165, sk the first 3 chs (3 skipped chs count as 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 5 chs. *Ch 1, sk the next ch, 1 dc in each of the next 5 chs**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 7 chs, ch 1, the next ch, 1 dc in each of the last 6 chs, turn. [147 dc, 28 ch1sp]

Rep from * to **across to the last 3 dc, ch 2, sk the next 2 dc, 2 dc in the last dc, turn. [29 sc, 88 dc, 58 ch2sp]

R6-R13: Rep R2-R5
Do not finish off and do not turn your work after R13; instead continue to the edging section below.
The edging is worked around the outside edges of the scarf, in rounds.
If you would prefer an infinity scarf, please proceed to the NOTE that follows the Finishing Instructions below.
Rnd 1: Ch 3, sk R13 row end. Work sc sts evenly along the side edge to the last dc row edge. I worked 1 sc in each sc row edge and 2 sc in each dc row edge. Ch 3 and rotate to work along the unworked loops of the foundation chain row. Work 2 sc in the first ch and 1 sc in each rem ch across to the last ch of the row. Work 2 sc in the last ch. Ch 3 and rotate to work along the side edge. Sk the R1 row end and work sc sts evenly along the side edge. Try to make the same number of sc sts as you did on the opposite side. When you reach the last dc row edge (R13), skip it and ch 3. Rotate your project to crochet across the top of R13. Work 2 sc in the first st and 1 sc in each rem st and ch1sp across to the last st. Work 2 sc in the last st.
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in the BL of the first ch (of the ch 3), sk 1 ch and work 1 sc in the BL of the next ch. Work 1 sc in the BL of each rem sc across to the final ch 3. Work 1 sc in the BL of the first ch (the one closest to you), sk 1 ch and work 2 sc in the BL of the next ch. Rotate your project to continue across the foundation row. Work 1 sc in the BL of each sc across. Rotate your project to continue across the next side edge. Work 2 sc in the BL of the first ch (of the ch 3), sk 1 ch and work 1 sc in the BL of the next ch. Work 1 sc in the BL of each rem sc across the side edge to the final ch 3. Work 1 sc in the BL of the first ch, sk 1 ch and work 2 sc in the BL of the last ch. Rotate your project to continue across the top edge. Work 1 sc in the BL of each sc across. Sl st to the first sc to join. Finish off.
Weave in any remaining ends and block if desired. Add buttons (as a closure) or fringe to the side edges if you wish.
NOTE: If you would prefer to make this a finished infinity scarf, whipstitch the two side edges together. Then work the following edging across R13. Then, finish off and rejoin in an unworked loop of the foundation chain and repeat the edging instructions.
Alternate Edging for an Infinity Scarf
R1: Work 1 sc in each st and ch1sp around.
R2: Work 1 sc in the BL of each sc around. Finish off.
