Making the Dancing Dragonflies Scarf: Part Three






Round 4





  Welcome to Part Three of the Dancing Dragonflies Scarf! (Click here for written pattern) Again, I hope this doesn't get confusing... Part Three covers Round Four which is actually Row Three of the Dragonfly pattern stitch. Got that? If not... Eh, don't worry about it. The multiples of Round 4 are exactly the same as they were in Round 3. We'll be adding more stitches to the sides around each of the corners, so that's the only thing that's going to change here. This one is easy: You've got this!




Stitches used in this tutorial:













Let's get started!



1.
Just like for the previous round, you will slip stitch into the corner ch-2 space to begin this round. Chain 6. This will count as the beginning double crochet and the corner ch-3 space. Make 1 dc in the same space to complete the corner.




2.
Make 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 double crochet stitches. (You will have a total of 3 dc after the ch-3 corner space.)





3.
Remember, I told you these two rows of the multiples are easy! This round is the same as the last. *Chain 10, skip 10, make a dc in the next dc.* Repeat from * to * for each remaining multiple (19 more, as the pattern is written). The pattern states to "skip 10", but all you really have to do is look for the next dc!





4.
The ending dc of the last multiple already makes one stitch before you work to the corner, so all you need to do here is make 1 dc in the next dc.




5.
Make (1 double crochet, ch 3, 1 double crochet) in the corner ch-2 space. This makes the second corner space of Round 4.





6.
Working around the side: Make 1 dc in each of the next two double crochet. You will see three dc's after the corner ch-3 space.






7.
To continue working around the side: Make (1 double crochet, ch 4, 1 double crochet) in the middle ch-3 space.





8.
Before working the next corner, you will make 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 double crochet stitches.





9.
In the next corner ch-2 space, make (1 double crochet, ch 3, 1 double crochet). This makes the third corner space.




10.
Make 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 dc's before beginning the next set of multiples. You will have a total of 3 dc's after the corner ch-3 space.





11.
It's hard to believe this mess will turn into a beautiful scarf!
For the next set of multiples, *Chain 10, make 1 dc in the next double crochet.* Repeat from * to * for the remaining multiples (19 more, as the pattern is written).





12.
After you finish working the last multiple, make 1 double crochet in the next double crochet stitch before the corner space.





13.
Make (1 double crochet, chain 3, 1 double crochet) in the next ch-2 corner space. This makes the fourth corner space.





14.
Working around the side: Make 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 dc's after the corner space. You will have 3 dc's on either side of the corner ch-3 space.





15.
To continue working around the side: Make (1 double crochet, ch 4, 1 double crochet) in the ch-3 space. If you look back to the third corner ch-3 space, you will now see 4 dc's after it.





16.
Make 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 dc's before the beginning chain. If this looks confusing because it doesn't match the stitches after the third corner space, don't worry! You will need to join this stitch to the next to create the fourth dc before the beginning corner space.
 





17.
Join with a slip stitch to the third chain of the beginning ch-6. This will complete the four dc's before the beginning chain-3 corner space. The next round will be more complicated - Are you ready?
