I decided to take some additional photos to help anyone who is having difficulties with the original instructions.

The pattern is worked on a repeat of 9 stitches + 1 extra stitch for the starting chain.

For the purposes of this photo support post (tutorial) I am using the same number of stitches as I used in my original pattern. Remember for this pattern you work every stitch you make in the back loop only! Chain stitches do not count as stitches in the row-end counts.

Pattern Instructions Snowy Hills Scarf

Row 1: Chain 136.

The maths:

136 stitches – 1 stitch =135 stitches

135 stitches divided by 9 stitches = 15 repeat sections of 9 stitches each

Begin in the second chain from the hook.

You have now skipped 1 stitch (the + 1 we added for the starting chain) and are already down to 135 stitches remaining.

Work: *1 back loop single crochet stitch in each of the next 4 chains, work 3 back loop single crochet stitches in the next chain, work 1 back loop single crochet stitch in each of the next 4 chains**. Repeat from * to ** 15 times in total. Chain 1. Turn. [165]

This * to **, is the repeat section. You will be working 11 stitches per repeat section; this is an extra 2 stitches in each section. Making your row total:  15 repeat sections multiplied by 11 stitches = 165 stitches (an increase of 2 stitches per section; 30 extra stitches). The extra stitches is what make the chevron or wave parts of the pattern.

Row 1 is very wavy and will turn in on itself – it is supposed to do this and you will see the design take shape after you complete Row 2. Please keep in mind the heavier weight yarns will make it even more wavy – this is totally normal!

Here is the full row complete – now with 165 sc stitches. You will not have any left over (extra stitches) at the end of the row. If you do please recount your stitches and double check you have 15 repeat sections of 11 stitches each.

Row 1 Complete Snowy Hills Scarfie

Row 2: *Skip the first stitch. Work 1 back loop single crochet in each of the next 4 single crochet stitches. Work 3 back loop single crochet stitches in the next single crochet stitch. Work 1 back loop single crochet in each of the next 4 single crochet stitches. Skip the next stitch.** Repeat from * to ** 15 times in total. Chain 1. Turn. [165]

Please take note of the “Skip the first stitch” at the very beginning of the repeat section AND the “Skip the next stitch” at the very end of the repeat section. Except for at the very beginning and the very end of the row these 2 skipped stitches will be side-by-side. Meaning you will have 2 skipped stitches in a row.

These 2 skipped stitches in each pattern repeat section are what cause the curve at the bottom of the chevron (the valley) and they balance out the 2 extra stitches we are working in the peak of the wave (where we work 3 stitches into 1 stitch) at the top of the chevron. If you do not remember to skip both stitches in each repeat section, your scarf will have too many stitches and you will end up with extra unworked stitches when you reach the end of the row.
