This pretty scarf is made with worsted weight yarn with a strand of sparkle running through it. The pattern is written out in two widths; one for children and one for adults. Any worsted weight yarn will work for this pattern.
This stitch pattern uses multiples of 8 + 2. This means that the stitch uses 8 stitches and you need 2 stitches for the turning chain. In order to make your scarf wider you would need to chain a multiple of stitches that can be evenly divided by 8, plus 2. The plus number is only added once.
For the children's scarf I used 24 chains plus 2, for a total of 26. For the adult scarf I used 32 plus 2 for a total of 34 chains.
I used a foundation single crochet to begin my scarves. If you are not familiar with this stitch you can review it in my post on foundation stitches.
