Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them

 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
