If you click on the link, Sandi Marshall has written a full explanation of the instructions for each row. If you are a beginner following this pattern, you will learn about the most basic crochet abbreviations, how to read a pattern, and have an understanding of how to follow some of the most common instructions found in most every crochet pattern.
I adapted the pattern for the Snuggle Yarn which is a bulky yarn, chaining 25 instead of 15 as instructed in the pattern. I crocheted 12 rows of red, than alternated with 12 rows of gray, then red, gray, red, gray, finishing with 12 rows of red.

I finished the scarf with a single crochet stitch around the outside edge of the entire scarf, putting in a couple extras at the corners for a nice turn.
