Meandering Paw Prints SKINNY Scarf Pattern

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

2017 Was a GREAT year here at Amy B Stitched and I really want that to keep that vibe going through 2018!!  And what better way to do that than releasing a new FREE pattern on the first day of the year!!! 

Meandering Paw Prints Scarf pattern became popular very quickly, and with that requests for other patterns using the paw print stitch. Today I am releasing # 8 in the Meandering Paw Prints pattern series. It is the Meandering Paw Prints Skinny scarf!!!  It is a simple repeat of 5 rows!! You will be able to memorize the pattern quickly and work on it while watching television or whatever it is that  you do. It is a great width for someone who does not need the warmth of a wider scarf and is the perfect width for a child's scarf! You can customize it however you like as well!! Add fringe, or NO fringe. Or you may just choose to stitch the ends together to fashion for yourself an Infinity Scarf!!

SIZE: 4.5 inches wide, each repeat of the pattern is 3” long. I used 21 repeats (approx. 63 inches long) for an adult scarf and 15 repeats (approx. 45 inches long) for a child’s scarf.
MATERIALS: Size H/8/5.0 mm crochet hook, Worsted/4/medium weight yarn approx. 4 oz (208 yards), yarn needle, measuring tape.

TERMS AND ABBREVIATIONS USED:
Ch – chain

NOTE:
1)      Ch 2 at beginning of row does NOT count as a stitch.
2)      Dc in last sk st: Insert the hook into the skipped stitch indicated and continue with your dc in the same manner as the other dc. This binds the two sts together into a cross stitch. (see pics below)
