Lauren's Scarf and Hat

My niece, Lauren, couldn't find her scarf . . . she thinks one of her students to a five finger discount and lifted it.  I offered to make her one and she agreed to something colorful. I asked if she wanted a hat also. She said, "Just don't make something stupid!"

Moi? Her favorite aunt . . . and s-h-h-h-h-h, don't tell anyone, I am her only aunt. Now, if we go to aunts and great-aunts she has my Aunt Ruth . . . and she deserves to be the favorite. She is the matriarch of our family.

But, I digress . . . here is what the scarf and hat ended up looking like. I like them a lot, but I am going to replace the pom-pom with a bigger one. This one is out of proportion . . but I wanted the picture so you get what I had.


Scarf
Square Size: 3" x 3"
Border depth: 1"

Materials 
Yarn: Worsted Weight
Vanna's Choice colors used in sample:
A. Scarlet
B. Terracotta
C. Duckie (Vanna Baby Yarn)
D. Kelly Green
E. Sapphire
F. Eggplant

Crochet Hook: F/5 3.75mm

Tapestry/Yarn Needle



NOTES:
  1. Each row is made of twenty-eight squares.
  2. Once the 1st square is complete, the next squares are joined as you go.
  3. When making the second row, the 1st square will be joined to the first square of the first row.
  4. The 2nd square in the second row will be joined to the 1st square in that row AND the 2nd square of the first row.
  5. The method I am going to teach you allows you to join the granny squares as you make them . . . no waiting until you have all of the squares done to join them.
  6. Your squares are done in sequence: A-F then repeat until you have reached the length you want. I made 28 squares per row but you may increase or decrease at your will.

Abbreviations
ch(s) – chain(s)
dc(s) – double crochet(s)

Starting the 4th round (blue) of the border.
The center of each square is a Magic Circle. If you don't know how to make one, here are two resources:

  2. Love the hat and scarf, but there is an error in the pattern. Square 1 Round 1, in between the *'s you have *3 dc, 2 dc*. Shouldn't the 2 dc be 2 ch?
