The true beauty of this lovely textured scarf is it looks stunning from both sides! I can’t wait to see what it looks like with the yarns you choose too 🙂 I want to make another one in rainbow colors 🙂 The stitches are made up of little fans and on the one side of the fabric they are much more prominent – almost like small scales – I love this stitch pattern.  🙂

  1. Hi Julie! It should indicate “dc”. The (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) needs to be worked into the first dc of the row (i.e. the final dc of R2). I apologize for the typo!! I’ve updated the pattern and the PDF version at Craftsy with the correction. Thank you so much for letting me know! All the best, Rhondda

  2. I am really having trouble with Row 3. It says after the Chain 4 to do (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in the first sc. But then *1 sc in next sc. In the previous row, there was only 1 sc per grouping. This just doesn’t seem to work. And when I look at the picture for Row 3, it seems that the (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) goes into the top of the first BPdc or the dc from the end of the previous row, and then the sc goes into the sc from the previous row.
