Yellow and Black Scarf

This was the scarf I was trying to make to match the hat I had made earlier. Well as you can see from the first pic I didn't have enough black yarn to make a long enough scarf. It ended
up being only 51 inches. My weekend trip to Hobby Lobby I grabbed a couple more skeins of both the
black and yellow. Not sure what's going on, but there are two prices on all the I Love This Yarn!, some are
$2.79 and other were $2.49.
Back to the scarf problem, I had to change dye lots, so I am going to use a yellow stripe to break between
dye lots.
This isn't a pattern just a hdc stitch.

Crochet Hook Size H
ch 23, Row 1: hdc in third ch from the hook and in each ch across. ch 2 (counts as first hdc), and turnRow 2: hdc in each hdc across.
TIP: Always count your stitches when doing a scarf, it's very noticeable when you are short one or add an
extra stitch. I also end a color and then tie on the new color at the beginning of a row.
Repeat Row 2 until your scarf measures approx 51 inches, that's where I ran out of yarn. Attach CC (yellow
on the example)
I marked my right side of the scarf and added (1 row of yellow, and 3 rows of black) 5 times. Repeat at the
other end of the scarf. Finish off
