What better way to welcome the first stirrings of autumn than with a granny square scarf? The scarf shown here was made with merino wool lace weight thread, so it’s warm, but not too heavy. If you want a thicker, more wintery scarf, you can easily switch the thread out for a heavier yarn. The advantage of granny square scarves is that you can adjust the size to your liking by adding or removing squares. The end result is a pretty, repeating motif.
If you have any questions, or see any mistakes in the pattern, please feel free to contact me. I was woken up by an insistent little foot in the ribs at 6am this morning so I may be a little out of it right now. Don’t let anybody tell you any different - decaf is no substitute for the real thing!

R6: Sl st in ch-1-sp, ch1, sc in same ch-1 sp, (ch3, sc in next ch-1 sp) all the way around, ending with sc in starting ch-1 sp and joining to 1st sc with sl-st.
I joined the granny squares by making every 2nd chain in R6 ch3 a sl st with the respective stitch in my adjoining granny square. Then I stitched a border all around the scarf and blocked the whole thing to even out the stitches. The last thing I did was add fringe, but this is a personal preference and totally up to you.
Disclaimers and notifications and the like: The design for this scarf came out of my noggin. I have no problem with anybody using this pattern for their own personal use. I don’t even have a problem with you crocheting this scarf and then selling the finished product. (We’ve all got to eat!) All I ask is that if you do sell a scarf made from this pattern, that you cite this blog as your pattern source somewhere in your listing. I also ask that you don’t reproduce this pattern anywhere, as it is original content and I retain full copyright under the Tumblr terms of service.
Also, as I am 8 1/2 months pregnant, and nobody wants an angry, pregnant lady coming at them. Nobody…
