My latest Crochet project--Pink and Peach scarf

Hi all,
  Here's my latest crochet project.  I made my DD a pink and peach scarf for next winter.  I didn't follow a pattern this time.

  Here's what I did:

Abbreviations:
Ch=Chain
HDC= Half Double Crochet

Ch: 18

Row 1: HDC Starting in 3rd chain from the hook all the way across Ch 2 turn

Row 2-3: repeat row1 then tie off at the end of row 3

Row 4: Starting with second color chain 2 at the end of row 3, 3rd chain from the hook HDC across, ch 2, turn

Row 5: HDC starting in 3rd loop from the hook tie off at the end

Row 6: Starting with Main color chain 2, 3rd loop from the hook HDC across, Ch 2, turn


Just repeat with the main color for as long as desired length (mine ended up a little shorter than I wanted due to running out of pink).

Then with second color repeat in reverse starting from Row 4 back to Row 1.  Then I just finished off with pink and peach tassels.

  Please excuse the amateur pattern!  I'm still learning and have never written out a pattern.  I was happy with the result and DD loves it, so.....Woo Hoo! :)

I hope you all have a wonderful day!  Don't forget to stop by my giveaway here celebrating 200 followers. ;)

Oh jeez... I have enough things that I'm working on, now you're posting about a scarf that is too cute NOT TO MAKE? Mental note: must teach the husband to crochet so he can do some of these projects and save me the time. :) Too cute!
