Granny Kerchief

I have been making loads of these as we are heading into winter.  I have been asked to make a pattern.  Example of my kerchief

I have used double knit and used a size 4mm and a size 6mm hook, it just depends on the drape you want, the looser the drape then I recommend the larger hook.  But after four rows you will be able to tell if you are happy with the look and feel of your kerchief

Yarn:    Any yarn will work
Hook:   Recommended for yarn you choose
Gauge:  Not important

dc = Double Crochet

Row 1
Chain 3.
2dc into the 1st chain
Turn.

Row 2
Chain 3.
2dc into the same place as the chain.
3dc into the 3rd chain from previous row.
Turn.

Row 3
Chain 3.
2dc into the same place as the chain.
3dc into the space between the groups from previous row.
3dc into the 3rd chain from previous row.
Turn.

Repeat row 3 until the kerchief or shawl is the size you would like.

I have made this many many times, however please let me know if there is anything that I have left out.  I will attempt to update this with pictures.
