Size "S" Hook (I think it's the biggest one that is made, usually blue plastic as shown below:)

3.5 oz worsted weight 4 yarn (I love Debra Norville)

Stitches you will need to know:
single crochet (sc)
chain stitch  (ch)
3dc cluster stitch (see directions below*)
*y.o., insert hook into indicated stitch, y.o., draw through, y.o., draw thru 2 loops on hook; repeat from * 2 more times; y.o., draw thru all four loops on hook; 3dc cluster made

Begin by ch 15
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in each ch across; ch 2, turn  (14 sc)

Row 2:  *skip 1 sc, work 3dc cluster in next; repeat from * across; ch 1, turn  (7 - 3dc clusters)

Row 3:  work 3 sc in top of each 3dc cluster across; ch 2, turn;  (21 sc)

Row 4:  *skip 2 sc, work 3dc cluster in next; ending with 3dc cluster in last sc; ch 1, turn  (7 clusters)

Row 5 - ? :  Repeat rows 3 & 4 until scarf is desired length; use left over yarn (if there is any) to make fringe, if desired.

Even with the high level of pain in my hands while crocheting, I managed to make this in a half a day.  It would probably take anyone else only a few hours to make but I'm not sure.  Please let me know what you think, and how long it took you to make this scarf, if you make one.  Thanks so much, God's blessings to you and yours.
