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!
Granny square pattern:
Loop:  Ch6. Join with sl st to first ch to form a closed loop.
R1:  Ch1, sc 16 times in loop. Join with sl st to first sc.
R2 (Flower):  (Ch 11, sl st in foundation sc to make  a loop, sl st in next 2 sc, ch7, sl st in same sc to form a loop, sl st  in next 2 sc) 4 times
R3:  Sl st in first 5 st of 1st ch-11 loop, sl st in  loop, ch1, (sc, ch1, sc, ch 3, sc in ch-7 loop, ch3) 4 times, join with  sl st to 1st sc
R4:  Ch2, dc in same st, ch3, 2 dc in next sc, (ch3,  dc in next sc, ch3, 2 dc in next sc, ch3, 2 dc in next sc) 3 times,  ch3, dc in next sc, ch3, join with sl st to top of beginning ch2.
R5:  Ch3, [(dc, ch1) 5 times in ch-3 space from R4,  ch 1, dc in 2nd st (2nd dc from R4), ch 1, dc in ch-3 sp, ch1, dc in  next dc (from R4), ch 1, dc in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in 1st dc (from R4),  ch1] 4 times, join with sl st to 2nd ch in starting ch3.
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…
