Cross Roads Knitted Scarf Pattern

This photo looks like a hat, not a scarf.

 I did not intend to make a hat, I wanted to make a scarf. It just worked out that way because I did not have enough of the clearance yarn. I could not find more of the yarn I needed at Michael's.  At least not at the store, I could of got more online, which is Red Heart Soft Essentials in cream.

 I do not recommend making a rectangle, folding it half and sewing up the sides. Though the hat does have a cute cat ear vibe going on.  It is not my ideal way to make a hat. 
So here is a picture of each side of the pattern.
I liked this side and made it my right side. After some thought, I could use this in the future as a gift bag.

I was inspired to make this pattern after seeing it on a yarn label. Hopefully I am not stepping on some copyright toes by posting the pattern I used. I also did not know what to call this pattern so I did call it cross roads because it sort of looks like roads crossing each other.

The yarn I used was Red Heart Soft Essentials, which is a bulky yarn (size 5).
I used 9 needles.

To have a nice edge, I did slip 1 at the beginning at each row. Repeat rows 1-20 until you have desired length. When it is the length you like, cast of on either row 10 or twenty.
I do plan on making this pattern as a scarf in the future. I do like how both sides turned out. When I do knitted scarves, I would like the scarf to look good on both sides. I might also do a single crochet edge on the future scarf.

I may in the future adapted this pattern into an actual hat, I will have to figure out hoe to do the decreases on the top.
