    Use a gauge of 12 sts and 11 rows (4 inch) to crochet a scarf that measures approximately 8 inch wide and 70 inch long, not including fringe. Save time, check your gauge. If the hooks listed under supplies do not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Special Stich: Fsc = Foundation single crochet (This technique creates a foundation chain and a row of single crochet stitches in one): Step 1: Place a slip knot on hook, ch 2, insert hook in 2nd ch from hook and draw up a loop; yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the "chain"); yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (the "single crochet"). Step 2: Insert hook into the "chain" of the previous stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (the "chain"), yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (the "single crochet"). Repeat for the length of foundation. Notes: Scarf has 2 different stitch patterns worked alternately with each change of color. Due to different stitch patterns, you may need to change hooks to maintain width throughout. Long loops of chains are added to each end as fringes. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
