Soft Steps Crochet Scarf Pattern

As I Work

It is late at night as I sit here working. There is a general silence in the neighborhood because of the habits of this hour. The shadows of the room have long since crept all the way across and covered everything in darkness. The only light source is coming from my laptop. And I am huddled on the floor, having taken it over with my crochet projects hours ago, hooding myself in a blanket wrapped all the way up to my chin. This is how I like to work. Is anyone else nocturnal like that?

My husband pokes his head into the room to check on me. He’s a good guy and I appreciate the attention. But the stream of light from the other room pierces through the darkness and right onto my face. Wincing and fighting the urge hiss, I bring the blanket tighter around my face and peer up at him.

“You want a snack?” he asks me.

…….I nod from underneath my cover. Shaking his head in amused incredulousness, he shuts the door and sets about getting me treats.

And now…let’s get to the point. Shall we? I have a new scarf pattern for you!

Notes:

  1. The scarf is worked in back-and-forth rows.
  2. The 3-ch post at the beginning of the rows DOES count as your first dc stitch.
  3. This scarf is 5 ½ inches wide and can be made wider by using multiples of 5 then adding 4 more sts.
  4. I do not specify how many rows you should make, but use the gauge measurement to give you an idea of how long you would like to make the scarf.
