Row 1:
Into each stitch across, place 1 SC.
(25 SC)

Row 2:
[Photo Instructions below]

CH 3 and turn (counts as 1 DC, CH 1). SK two stitches and *place 3 DC into the next stitch. CH 1 and SK the next two stitches*. Repeat across the row from * to * until there are 3 stitches left. SK two stitches and place 1 DC into the last stitch.
(2 DC stitches [ends], 7 DC clusters, 8 CH 1 spaces)

Row 3:
CH 2 and turn (counts as 1 DC). Place 2 DC into the first CH space. CH 1 and SK the next cluster. *Place 3 DC in the next CH space, CH 1 and SK the next cluster*. Repeat across the row from * to * until there is one CH space left. Make 3 DC into the final CH space.
(8 DC clusters, 7 CH 1 spaces)

Row 4:
CH 3 and turn (counts as 1 DC, CH 1). SK the next cluster. *Place 3 DC in the next CH space, CH 1 and SK the next cluster*. Repeat across the row from * to * until there is one cluster left. Skip over the next 2 DC of the cluster and place 1 DC into the 2nd CH stitch of the turning CH from row 3.
(2 DC stitches [ends], 7 DC clusters, 8 CH 1 spaces)

Row 5:
Repeat row 3

Row 6:
Repeat row 4

Row 7:
CH 1 (does not count as a stitch). Into the first CH space place 2 SC. Place 1 SC into each of the next 3 DC stitches. *SK the next CH space and place 1 SC into each of the next 3 DC stitches. * Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. In the last CH space, place 2 SC.
(25 SC stitches)

Rows 8-11:
CH 1 (does not count as a stitch). Into the first stitch and each stitch across, place 1 HDC.
(25 HDC stitches)

(You will now be working the remainder of the scarf in row repeats)

Repeat rows 1-11:
17 more times = 198 rows total from row 1.
(18 DC cluster sections, 18 solid sections made of SC and HDC)

Rows: 199-205:
Repeat rows 1-7
(Last row should be SC)

After completing row 205, fasten off and weave in ends. Your extra-long and extra cozy One Skein Granny Rows Scarf is complete!

  2. Would it be possible to use the entire ball of yarn? I want to include all the colors but I don’t want to mess up the pattern.

    • Hi Erin! You could definitely use the entire cake of Mandala but you might find there won’t be enough to complete the last segment. I couldn’t use the last little bit of my cake because it was only enough for the last HDC section and not enough for the final granny portion. If you aren’t overly worried about the ends matching, you could crochet the repeat to wherever you run out of yarn.
