Working the posts

Skip 2 sts, work shell here

Repeat rows two and three until you have almost used up all your yarn. Or if you want to use this same color for your tassels and you don’t have another skein of this color you can save some for the tassels or just use another color to make them.
When working the next row of shells, sc in first stitch, then skip 2 sts and work your shell



After row 3 it looks like this

Star Fish Stitch 5

After row 4 it looks like this

Star Fish Stitch 6

If you want to use the whole skein for the scarf then when you have just a little bit of yearn left, do a single crochet in each stitch across to finish scarf.


Look at pictures below to see the method of adding the tassels.
