It's perfect for blankets, scarves, or anything that you want to keep you warm. Multiple of 5+2 chains is needed for this stitch pattern. This is a very easy pattern for a beginner but interesting enough for someone more experienced. Pattern is below. The photo above shows a swatch that used a chain of 27. The video shows a smaller swatch of 17.

This is a very quick pattern to make and a fun one also.

Row 3: ch6 ( 1dtr+ch1) Skip the 1st stitch, (NOT counting the base of the chain 6), 1dc in each of the next 3 dc's, (they should always be centered over the 5-dc group from the previous row), ch3. *Skip next 3 stitches, 1dc in each of the next 3 dc's, ch3* repeat instructions between * until you have 2 stitches left then do chain 1 and do 1dtr in last stitch.
