Your patterns are wonderful, thank you so much for sharing.

Thanks guys! There's nothing like good crocheters, hung? (LOL) The beuty of this pattern is that you can practically do anything with it. For example, you can add the fanciest edging of your choice to the outside edge of it, you can add a small fringe to the crossing ends, you can change the number of buttons from 4 to 2 or even to 1 in the middle. Play with it, you'll love it!

I love this short scarf. I am working it right now. Row 6 you note to work stitches into dcs and skip dcs. The previous row is sc.

SandieP said...

I get 5 stitches at the end of Row 6 rather than 6, is that a typo or did I err?

Craftybegonia said...

Hi Sandie P! You were right, I had some typos on row 6 (skip sc, not dc)but you are supposed to have 6 sts, not 5 at the end of that row. What you can do is to go back a little ways and add 2 dc into 1 sc to get the final count and yet have a straight edge.
Hope this helps and thanks for your eagle eyes!
Hope your neck cozy turns out gorgeous!
