Ritratto HDC Scarf

I wore one of my favorite crocheted scarves to work yesterday, and one of my co-workers started to bug me for the pattern. That made me think that I should really write up the pattern and share it with all of you, too. So, in honor of National Crochet Month, here is a new scarf pattern. Please bear in mind that I made this scarf a while ago but just wrote the pattern this morning. So if you find any errors in it, please let me know and I will be glad to fix them. Also, please respect that this is my original pattern. Feel free to make scarves from it, but please do not reproduce the pattern as your own.
