Bubble Wrap Scarf :)

I think it's going to be last scarf this year. I have too many already. I can probably wear different scarf each day of the week!

I planned to make it very long, but I think a cowl is more comfortable after all. Especially for hiking, sledding ( I hope we have snow this winter) and stuff like that.

Red Heart Supersaver Aran, hook 5.5 mm

Abbreviations and special stitches:
beg ch-beginning chain
sc-single crochet
dc- double crochet
blo- back loop only
st, sts-stitch, stitches
yo-yarn over
bubble-(yo, draw loop in designated st, yo, pull yarn through 2 loops on hook ) 3 times in same st, yo, pull through 4 loops-bubble made (NOTE-the bubble will show up on the opposite side of your work)

Beginning chains in this pattern and are included in st count. They count as dc or sc.

Row 1
Ch 18, starting in 3rd ch from hook dc in each ch across [17 dc]

Row 2
Ch1 and turn, sc in next st, *bubble in next st, sc in each of next 2 sts*,  repeat from * to * across row, placing last sc on top of beg ch2 [5 bubbles, 12 sc]

Row 3
Ch2 and turn, dc or blo dc in each st across, placing last st in beg ch1 [17 dc or blo dc]

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until you are pleased with length of your scarf. For a cowl fold your work and sew or crochet both ends together. Cut yarn and sew in the loose ends.

Rows in pictures:
Row 1

Row 2

Row 3

This is how the pattern looks with blo dc stitches, just a little bit more texture:

And smoother, with the regular ones:

And here's Mr. Polar Bear modeling the FO for me:)

And the Queen herself, too:

And here am I, in my PJs,  dreaming of winter, and trying not to faint of overheating!

If you want to make your scarf wider - add three chains for each additional bubble you want to have. One for a bubble itself and two for stitches between the bubbles :)
