Step 2
Ribbing pattern
1st row – h2ch, sc to end plus RC1
2nd row – h2ch, bl sc to end + RC1
Work following rows as 2nd one until you crochet 14 rows (7 ribs) or the desired width of the camo scarf
Step 3
Edge – ch1, sc1 above each row.
You should work 14 sc or more if you’ll have more ribbing rows. After that, cut the yarn and secure it.
Attach the yarn on the opposite side of the scarf or work an extra row of bl sc down to the other side of the scarf and work the same edge. Lastly, cut the yarn and secure it.
