Dragonfly Wonder Scarf
Copyright © 2009 Aurora S.
In my example, I used a "G" hook and Caron Simply Soft yarn.
I will update the amount of yarn I used when I am done with another scarf, I am pretty sure I used a bit over 12 oz.
POPCORN: 4 or 5 popcorn stitch, doesn't matter to this pattern.
FPDC: Front Post Double Crochet
*When you see "FPDC in dc Two rows down".....this would be the row of DC directly below the previous row of SC
Row 1: Ch 25, DC in 4th ch from hook and each dc across. Turn (23)
Row 2: Ch1 SC in each dc across. Turn (23)
Row 3: Ch3 (Counts as one st now and throughout) DC in each sc across. Turn (23)

Row 16: Ch1 SC in each dc and Ch1 space across. Turn (23)
Row 17: Repeat Rows 5 through 16 until the piece is the length you want it......making sure to end the scarf with a last row of DC.
IF you want your dragonflies to lay down your chest right side up, then make two strips and put them wrong sides together and slip stitch across to connect them. In the picture above I did 8 dragonflies....each strip measured about 5" wide by 33" long.....so together, my scarf measured 5 "W by 66"L excluding the fringe.
