Indiana Memory Pattern

I told you guys that I would post up the finished pattern for the Indiana Memory scarf, so here it is!

Just for the record, you are allowed to do whatever you want with scarves made from this pattern (because it is free on the internet and I obviously can't stop you).  
Sell them, donate them, give them to your dog as a chew toy, whatever.  
Just don't claim the pattern as your own or try to sell it.  Give credit where it is due.  

Indiana Memory Scarf

Yarn used: 
  • Caron Simply Soft Bone (Color A)
  • Caron Simply Soft Collection Pistachio (Color B)
  • H for beginning chain,
  • G for rest of scarf
 Stitches used: This pattern uses US crochet terms.
  • Single crochet (sc)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Chain (Ch),
  • Double Crochet (dc),
  • Treble cluster: YO twice, insert hook in next dc, YO, pull up loop, YO, (pull through 2 loops on hook) twice. Repeat in same dc, YO and pull through all 3 loops on hook.
  • Petal (single crochet, ch 4, treble cluster in next st, ch 4, single crochet in next st)

Gauge: Gauge is not important for this scarf, so it can easily be done in any size yarn with a hook that goes well with that yarn.  My finished scarf had a width of 4.5 in./11 cm and was approximately 5 ft 10 in./178 cm long. 

For base (not edging):
Colors alternate one row of Color A, 3 rows of Color B (except when noted).
There should be 13 dc per row (or 7 dc alternating with 6 ch).
Ch 3 at beginning of row counts as 1 dc.

Row 1:          Ch 16 (with H hook and Color A)
Row 2:          With G hook (from now on) in Color A dc in 5th st from hook, dc across, in last dc keep 2 loops on hook
Row 3:          In Color B, finish last dc, ch 3, turn, sk st, dc across
Row 4:          Ch 4, turn, sk 2 sts, dc, *ch 1, sk st, dc*
Row 5:          Ch 3, turn, dc in 1st space, dc across (there should be 2 dc in the ch 4 space), in last dc keep 2 loops on hook
Row 6:          In Color A, finish last dc, ch 3, turn, sk st, dc across, in last dc keep 2 loops on hook

Repeat Rows 3-6 until desired length without edging.  In last row of Color A, don’t keep 2 loops on hook…just dc last st.

For Edging:
There should be 7 petals on each end of the scarf.
Row 1:             In Color A, sl st in top of last dc (or ch 3 sp), ch 3, *sc in side of next row, ch 3*, sl st in bottom of first dc
Row 2:             Repeat on other side
Row 3:             In Color B, start at second row from end, sc in ch 3 space, ch 3, sc in next ch 3 space, ch 4, treble cluster in first st of end row, ch 4, sc in next st, petal across, last petal should end with sc in side of the top row
Row 4:             In Color B, *ch 3, sc in next ch 3 space*
Row 5:             Repeat (Row 3)
Row 6:             Repeat (Row 4),  Sl st in first sc of (3)
Row 7:             Finish off and weave in all ends
