When it comes to crocheting scarfs I only want to make them if they are quick and easy. I’ve mentioned before in the past but I have little patience for long projects. I need to be as close to instant gratification as possible when it comes to crochet. That’s why you won’t see me making a huge afghan and instead I make an over abundance of hats and easy scarves.
I got this Red Heart with Love yarn in this fabulous burgundy color (or the trendy name for burgundy which is marsala this year. Let me just say how obsessed I am with this color.) I’ve used this type of yarn for a few other projects and it’s becoming one of my favorites. It’s relatively inexpensive and softer than Super Saver. I made this v stitch scarf with it before. I really wanted a scarf with this yarn and I love v stitch for a quick scarf that drapes really well and isn’t too hot to wear all day. I wanted to wear this scarf at work, since I always need another layer, and I didn’t want it to be quite as bulky as my other v stitch scarf. I actually have another v stitch scarf (do you see a trend here?) that I really like too but I wanted something slightly bigger than that one.
I searched for an embarrassingly long amount of time to find a pattern to try but, as it normally happens, I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted so I decided just to make up my own pattern to get the right width and length to make the size scarf I wanted. I thought I should try something slightly different than the other two scarfs so I decided to go with the double v stitch. It’s basically a v stitch except you double the number of double crochets in the v part of the stitch (if that makes any sense.) There is nothing earth shattering about this scarf pattern as something similar is all over the internet but I feel as it is my duty as a blogger to share since I’m so pleased with how it turned out.
I may use this pattern to make another scarf because I have some cobalt yarn (that I untangled, see what I mean here) and it’s been calling my name. On the other hand I may try something different since I saw a cute scarf at the store yesterday that reminded me of puff stitch and it’s been on my mind ever since. We’ll see, like I’ve said before, my crafting mind changes with the wind.
DC= Double Crochet
SC= Single Crochet
SS= Slip Stitch
Gauge is not important but my scarf measured approximately 6 3/4 inches wide
Using a K hook CH 23

Repeat the above row until the scarf reaches 60 inches long. Fasten off leaving along tail. Whipstitch the ends together. Weave in ends.
You may use any of the patterns I create for personal use. If you would like to make an item to sell with my patterns you must link back to the pattern on my blog. You can not sell my patterns as your own.
