Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook (beginning ch counts as first dc), dc in next ch, [ch 10, sk next 10 ch, dc in next 3 ch] 4 times, turn—4 ch-10 sps, and five 3-dc groups.

Row 4: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, [ch 5, hold the ch-10 sps of the previous 3 rows together and sc around the middle of the 3 ch-10 sps (bow formed), ch 5, dc in next 3 sts] 4 times, turn—4 bows.
Row 5: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, [ch 10, sk next bow, dc in next 3 dc] 4 times, turn—4 ch-10 sps, and five 3-dc groups.

Row 1: Ch 1, pivot piece to work in ends of rows across long side edge, work sc evenly spaced across long side edge of scarf, ensuring that you have a multiple of 6 sc, turn. Note: The model has 192 sc worked across the long side edge. A multiple of 6 is any number that can be calculated by multiplying 6 by another number. For example, 6 x 32 = 192.
Row 2: Ch 1, *sk next 2 sts, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next st, sk next 2 sts, sc in next st; repeat from * across. Fasten off. Join yarn at beginning of other long side edge and repeat trim across that long side edge.
Lay scarf on flat surface. Flip one short end of scarf so that there is a twist in scarf. Sew short ends together, maintaining twist. Using yarn needle, weave in ends.
