!I finished the scarf but ran out of the matching yarn for the hat. The scarf turned out better than I thought it would!
About the pattern:
The pattern started with motifs; two for each end of the scarf.
The motifs start with a ch 4 to form a ring. I started with a magic circle and went on to make the granny square motif from there. Once those are done you sew two together and then start the body of the scarf from one side a motif continuing on until you get to the desired length and then sew the other two motifs together and connect them to the end of the scarf.
The body is done with double crochets and chains and looks like a granny square in rows.
How it went:
This was pretty fast and simple. But, once I finished the body I thought it looked unfinished (thanks State Fair Judges for telling me everything needs a border!). I added a border in the contrasting blue color from the second round of the motif and it looked much better.
I mixed the yarns from the motif to make the fringe and it was finished!
