Making the Dancing Dragonflies Scarf: Part Two






Round 3




  In Part Two of the tutorials for the Dancing Dragonflies Scarf (click here for written pattern), we will only cover Round 3 of the pattern, which is the second row of the Dragonfly pattern stitch. Hmm... Part two, round three, row two? I hope that doesn't get mixed up! The multiples get easier from here, but the corners and edges begin to grow, getting trickier. Don't worry; ignore my confusing explanation and just follow along to see how easy it really is!




Stitches used in this tutorial:














Let's get started!


  

1.
To begin Round 3, you will slip stitch into the corner ch-1 space after your joining slip stitch. Ch 5 (this counts as the beginning dc and the corner ch-2 space). Make 1 dc in the same corner space to complete the first corner of this round.




2.
Make 1 double crochet in the next double crochet (the dc before the first multiple begins). (By the way, if yours looks different here, it should! The "evil troll" stole my photo for this step... What's actually pictured is the third corner space of the round.)




3.
I told you the multiples would get easy from here! *Chain 10, make a dc in the next available dc.* (Technically, the pattern states "skip 10", but don't worry about that! Just look for the double crochet from the previous round, and you know where to put the next stitch.) Repeat from * to * for each remaining multiple (19 more, as the pattern is written).




4.
Make (1 double crochet, ch 2, 1 double crochet) in the second chain-1 corner space of Round 2. (This makes the second corner ch-2 space of Round 3.)




5.
To work around the edge (should we call it a "side"?), make (1 double crochet, ch 3, 1 double crochet) in the ch-2 space of Round 2.




6.
Make (1 double crochet, chain 2, 1 double crochet) in the third corner space of Round 2. (This makes the third corner ch-2 space of Round 3.) 




7.
Before beginning the next set of multiples: Remember to make 1 double crochet in the next double crochet (the second dc of the corner).




8.
*Chain 10, make a dc in the next available double crochet.* Repeat from * to * for each remaining multiple (19 more as the pattern is written).




9.
Make (1 double crochet, chain 2, 1 double crochet) in the next corner ch-1 space. This makes the fourth corner ch-2 space of  Round 3.




10.
To work around the side: Make (1 double crochet, chain 3, 1 double crochet) in the ch-2 sp of Round 2. (Or, should we call it "the space between corners"?)




11.
Join with a slip stitch to the third chain of the beginning ch-5. That's it for Round 3! That was easy, right? In the next round, the multiples will be worked the same way, but the corners and edges will increase with more stitches.
