All The Pinks Scrappy Scarf Pattern | Tw-In Stitches

Recently, I made my friend, Nikki, a sweater vest using Caron Cakes Cherry Chip. Cherry Chip is a great colorway. It has several different shades of pink and a bit of brown. It was the first time I used Caron Cakes and I discovered that in order to maintain the striping order, I often had to cut the yarn and start a new skein. That meant I had 3 partial skeins left. I hate left over yarn! So, I decided to use the left over skeins to create something else for Nikki: a scarf with All The Pinks! Pink is Nikki's favorite color, so this scarf is going to be loved.

Supplies:

1.5 skeins of leftover Caron Cakes Cherry Chip yarn (I joined all of the skeins using the Double Knot technique before I started.)
J (6 mm) hook
1 tapestry needle


Stitches:

chain
slip stitch
DC
DC2TOG


Pattern:

Chain 29.

Row 1: DC in the fourth chain from the hook.Chain 1. *Start a DC2TOG in the same stitch. Skip one chain. Complete the DC2TOG in the next stitch.* Repeat from * to * across, ignoring the skip one chain to finish the last DC2tog. Chain 3 and turn. (1 DC, 12 DC2TOG)

Row 2: DC in the first chain 1 space. *Chain 1 and start a DC2TOG in the same space.  Complete the DC2TOG in the next chain 1 space. * Repeat from * to * across. Chain 3 and turn.

Rows 3-105: Repeat Row 2.

After completing row 105, fasten off and weave in ends.

I kept going until I ran out of yarn, but you can stop at any length!
