for a total of 4 holes.

R : 1- Ch 35, 1 hdc in the 2nd ch from the hook, and in the next 33 chs,
2 hdc in the last st,

Working down the opposite side of the ch,

(placing 1 hdc in each row.) ch 1, turn.

R : 22 - 1 hdc in each hdc, tie off and weave in your end.

Center the hood in the center of the Scarf portion, and sc the hood to the scarf.
The Yorganza Yarn was really fun to work with. 
But if you are not adventurous with new yarns like I am, 
might be a little intimidating. 
 Once you get a rhythm going,
 it flows really nice,though.
I have a bunch of ideas I can use this yarn for. 
 Yes it makes glamorous scarves, 
but it would be wonderful, 
on a blouse or skirt edge, dog sweater, 
human sweater, bags,
 purses and backpacks...... 
well, on just about any project you want
 to add a little Ruffle to.
The model is sweet Young lady , that goes to my church,
She is a dear friend.
And is learning to crochet as well.
