Edging:  With right side of Row 2 facing you, attach white around last stitch in Row 1.  Ch 2;
2 hdc in same space.  * 2 hdc in next st (the ch 2 that served as the first stitch in Row 2 for the
top of this firs heart; the first hdc in the top of the subsequent hearts).  Hdc in next st (a dc).  3
hdc in next st (a trc).  Hdc in next 2 st (a dc and a hdc).  3 hdc over next st (the sc that forms
the "valley" of the top of the heart; you are working the 3 hdc's into the same stitch that the sc
was worked).  Hdc in next 2 st (a hdc and a dc).  3 hdc in next st (a trc).  Hdc in next st (a
dc).  2 hdc in next st (a hdc).  3 hdc around post of stitch in Row 1 immediately below hdc in
Row 2 where you just did 2 hdc.  3 hdc around post of dc one row below and immediately to
the left of the post around which you just worked 3 hdc.  Turn piece upside down.  2 hdc in
first sc that begins the bottom of the next heart.  Hdc in next 4 st (a sc, a sc, a hdc, and a dc).  
3 hdc in next st (the trc that forms the bottom point of the heart).  3 hdc around post of stitch
in Row 3 immediately below sc in Row 4 where you just did 2 hdc.  3 hdc around post of dc

Continue this pattern from *, ending with 2 hdc in the last stitch at the top of the last heart.  3
hdc around the last stitch in Row 1.  3 hdc around the last stitch in Row 3.  Continue with the
pattern all the way back across the scarf.  Remember that you are now working on the wrong
sides of Rows 2 and 4.  Make sure your edging stitches correspond with the tops of the
appropriate stitches in Rows 2 and 4.  End with 3 hdc around the last post in Row 3 and join
with a sl st to the top of the ch 2 that began the edging.  Fasten off.
