CROCHETING A LEAF PATTERN SCARF

Remember that the numbers on the video correspond to the numbers on the written pattern.
I am using Caron Simply Soft Party Yarn which is a size 4 medium,  and a size 6.5mm/K crochet hook.

dc = double crochet      *  *  rep what is in between the stars
sc = single crochet        st = stitch
ss = slip stitch               sp = space
ch = chain                      cnr = corner
Beg ch3 = 1dc                      ch sp = chain space
dc tog = double crochet together
picot = 3ch, 1sc in the first ch

A.  Ch 43, plus an extra 3

1. 1dc in the 4th ch from the hook (the 1st 3ch stand for your 1st dc here and in the next rows),

ch2, 2dc tog in the next 2, 2dc tog in the next 2 (so 2dc tog and 2dc tog in the next cluster)
ch2, 6dc in the next 4dc

ch2, 1dc in each of the next 6dc,
ch2, 2dc in the next dc,

WHEN YOUR SCARF IS THE LENGTH YOU WANT CONTINUE WITH THIS BORDER
7.  start anywhere (either of the sides) with a 2sc, 1 picot, 2sc
you are making 2sc in the side of each dc you had made for the scarf with a picot in between 2sc
