Row 1: Using yarn color “granite” Chain 22. Work single crochet in third chain from hook. Double Crochet in next stitch. Single Crochet in next stitch. Continue alternating single and double crochet stitches until end of row. (20 Stitches.) Chain 1 and turn (in this and each row after).
Rows 2-4: Single Crochet in next stitch, Double Crochet in next stitch. Continue alternating single and double crochet stitches until end of row. Repeat until you have 4 rows in this color. This is your first stripe.
Row 5-8 and remaining rows: Using yarn Claret attach at beginning of row and work 4 rows in same fashion as previous rows. This is your second stripe. You now have one Granite color stripe and one Claret color stripe. (Each stripe is 4 rows of stitches.) Continue working until you have completed 4 Granite stripes and 4 Claret stripes alternating. Then, for remainder of scarf, join yarn color Granite and finish.
This alternating pattern of Single and Double Crochet creates an interesting textured pattern by Single Crocheting into the Double Crochet stitches and Double Crocheting into the single stitches.
One easy way to create fringe is to decide how long you want it and then find a book that is about that size and wrap the yarn around and around the book, remove and cut through all yarn on one end. This scarf has fringe that is in bunches of 4 strands folded in the middle and using a crochet hook, bring through stitching at end of scarf. Then pull ends of yarn through the loop and you have one bunch of fringe. Continue working until you have completed fringe on this and other end of scarf.
