Granny Stripes Scarf (Graphic Pattern)

Bufanda de Franjas Granny (Patrón Gráfico)

Several people have asked how to make the stitch for the granny scarf. Actually, it is the same pattern as the granny stripes blanket, which you can find in many places, including Caron: GrannyStripes Afghan. For the scarf, I make the beginning row a little differently, so I thought of drawing a graphic pattern for you:

Varias personas me han preguntado sobre la puntada de la bufanda granny. En realidad, es el mismo patrón que la frazada de franjas de la abuelita, el cual pueden encontrar en muchos sitios, incluyendo Caron (en ingles, con gráfica): GrannyStripes Afghan. Dado que el comienzo lo hago un poco diferente para la bufanda, pensé en dibujarles el patrón gráfico:

I started with 15 chains, which is on the thin side (for our mild winters). But you can certainly go wider…Just add more chains to desired width (in multiples of 4 minus 1).
Comencé con 15 cadenas, que en realidad es algo angosta (por nuestro clima moderado). Pero también pueden hacerla más ancha, simplemente añadiendo más puntadas hasta alcanzar el ancho deseado (múltiplo de 4 menos 1).

Here are two more Granny Scarves I recently made:
Aquí les muestro otras dos bufandas granny que hice recientemente:

And the grey one is for a young lady. With a matching hat.
