Labor day weekend

Scarves I made this weekend over Labor day holiday.

The answer for what pattern used...well this is what I did.
I did a chain of about 178 to 180 stitches using a size J hook.
or just make a Chain that goes around your neck and hangs to
your lap when sitting...then
1st row...Double crochet in 3rd chain from hook, double in next
chain, 2 double crochet in next chain, 1 dc in next chain and continue
2 dc, 1 dc, 2dc in each chain across
this makes a slight twist
(I did this for a few of the scarves..if you want it to curl more
do 2 double crochets in 3rd chain from hook, **2 double crochet in next
chain, 3 double crochet in next, 2 in next and repeat from ** across
this makes it really curly )

row 2 for both types slight wave or curly
chain 3 turn dc in same stitch, 1 dc in next, 2 dc in next chain across the

row 3 single crochet in each chain across or
do a chain 3 and then in next stitch, 1 dc, chain one, 1 dc in next stitch, chain
one across...

last row..single in first stitch, *chain 3 slip stitch in bottom chain 3 (for picot), single in next two stitches repeat from *

that's it folks..easy peasy and fun

another easy afghan

Easy pattern...I still have a little to go to complete it.
