Using Caron Cakes yarn, I worked the scarf to 60" (152 cm), had enough to make the matching hat, and still had some left over. In the video tutorial, I explain that the reason I stopped short on this scarf was simply to match the colors at the ends... If you would like a longer scarf and want to make the complete set, you may want to start with the hat. If you want to make yours wider than the 6" (15 cm) shown, I can't guarantee if you'll have enough for the whole set.

*Please check after the written pattern for an extra note about color changes!
Double crochet cross stitch - Skip one, make a double crochet. Yarn over for a double crochet. Working behind the stitch just made, insert hook from front to back in the skipped stitch (or chain). Complete the double crochet while working behind the first stitch.
The version shown is worked with 10 pattern stitches across. To begin, chain 23. (That's 20 for the pattern stitches + 2 for the beginning and end stitches, and one more to make the beginning chain-1.)
Beginning in the second chain from the hook, make a double crochet. (Skip one chain, make a double crochet. Make a double crochet in the skipped chain) x10. Make a double crochet in the last available chain.
(22 stitches total)
Row 2 and all following rows:
Chain 1, turn. Make a double crochet in the first stitch. (Skip one, double crochet; double crochet in the skipped stitch) x10. Make a double crochet in the last available stitch.
Work to desired length; bind off and weave in ends.
*About those color changes: I let the magic of Caron Cakes happen on its own, and ended up with color changes in the middle of rows. To avoid the jog, you can cut and rejoin your yarn when you reach a new color in the Cake. Pull the new color through the last two loops of the last double crochet in the row.
Most of the colors change so subtly that it can't be noticed... But there's one spot between a bold and pastel tone that bugs me.
Well, now I have the new camera and a dummy! All I have to do is learn to not dress the dummy in the same color as the pattern. And to use the right lens so I can get the whole project in the picture! I'm not happy with the photo, but I want to show this scarf worn in the "keyhole" fashion, just because I like it that way:
