autumn scarf

scarf number two! this is VERY loosely based on the quahog beach bag (from crochet kitten), like, i thought i remembered the stitch pattern from making the purse, but i didn't.
autumn scarf
ch 23
R1 - dc in 3rd ch from hook and next 4 ch, *(ch 3, dc in next 5 dc), repeat from * across, ch 2, turn.
R2 - 1dc in each dc, *(ch 3, skip 3ch from previous row, dc in each dc) ch 2, turn. (you should have
R3-85 (or until scarf is desired length) - repeat R2, fasten off.
tassels: i cut 4 lengths of about 15" (for each tassel), plus one piece a bit longer (for tying the tassels to the scarf). feed the tassels through the ends of the scarf (1 in each corner, 1 in each 3ch space, and one in the middle of the dc groups - for 7 on each end), and tie the one longer piece around the tassel about 1/2" from the end of the scarf. (the ends of this longer piece just hang with the rest of the tassel). trim tassels to uniform length.
and it's as simple as that. i used sean sheep's wooloomooloo yarn, in autumn colors. it's got a nice metallic thread running through it, and the variegation looks really nice when it works up.
if anyone tries this pattern, can you let me know how it works? i just wrote it down from the finished product, not while i was making it.
