Ridged Scarf DIY Pattern

This year our church is again participating in Operation Christmas Child, a shoebox program that provides Christmas gifts and the story of Jesus Christ to children all over the world. As we gather small items to put in these boxes, I used a beautiful variegated yarn to make a girl's scarf.

I don't know much about how to crochet, but I know the two stitches required to complete this pattern. If you're like me, here are some basic instructions. For those of you who do this on a regular basis, the actual pattern is at the bottom of this post. Start with a chain of 10, then add one more to make the turn (a total of 11 chain stitches).

Single crotchet in the 10 loops of the chain, then chain one more to make the turn.

On this row, single crochet in the back loop only. This is what gives you the ridges. Then chain one more to make the turn.

Continue until it is the desired length or you run out of yarn, whichever comes first.

Weave the ends into the body of the scarf so they'll blend in.

I like to use the biggest, fluffiest yarn I can find for this pattern, but you can use any kind you like. I'd love to see your finished scarfs, so please share them!
