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




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.

I love to teach! As time has gone by I have improved my teaching methods but my upgrade of my equipment is very slow. Most money I make goes to every month bills and yarn supplies. I have just reached over 100k subscribers and I am feeling with the ever growing number that I really need to step up my game, but I need your help. All my content will still be free, this just gives you a chance to support me in what I do, so that I can make the best videos possible for you to learn from. I wish I could do it all myself but I am only one person. So I need you, my most loyal fans, to stand up and help me improve the channel.
