Scarf

Ch 22, sc in 2nd ch from hk and in ea ch across (21 sc)

Row 1: Sc in front loop only (FLO) of ea sc across (21 sc)

Row 2 (right side): Ch 1, turn, sc through both loops of first sc, dc in unused

loop of sc in row below, skip sc behind this st, sc in next sc, *dc in unused loop of

next sc in row below, skip sc behind this st, sc in next sc, rep from * across (21

sts)

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in FLO of ea st across (21 sts)

Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc through both loops of first sc, sc in next sc, dc in unusued

loop of sc on row below, skip sc behind this st, sc in next sc, rep from * across,

Repeat Rows 1-4 of seed st pattern until desired length. Fasten off and weave in

ends.

For 3-color version: work seed stitch pattern as above, but change to second and

third colors when each color runs out.

Hat

(Pattern note: on the first few increase rounds, it may be difficult to see where to

insert hook in the free loops of the round below, because there are more sts on

the outer round than the round you are reaching into. Do the best you can, but

don't worry if a double crochet lines up with a double crochet from a previous

round. It will become easier to identify the free loop to work into when you reach

60 sts. The double crochets will be evenly staggered in the seed stitch pattern

from that point on.)
