Color is the key that can make it pop. I made mine out of sock yarn but added a triangle to each bottom piece and buttons. I wanted something different. And when I place it around my neck it is just enough. What I like about a little skinny scarf is the difference it can make with the yarn you use and the color you choose. It can be dressed up or dressed down. It is also a scarf that can easily be made shorter or longer as your desired look. It just needs to be place around your neck as you are making it to see how it looks at different lengths.
I am passing along this little skinny 'V' stitch scarf. It also is very easy and a quick project to make. And it doesn't take up a lot of yarn.
V Stitch Scarf Pattern
Size G Crochet Hook
Yarn – Sport weight (3) – 1 skein at least 200 yards
Size: approx. 5" x 52"(with the yarn I used)
(note: If you need to purchase more yarn remember to look at the dye lot number from the skein you have and the one you are going to purchase to make sure they match.)
dc – double crochet
ch – chain
Row 1: double crochet in 4th chain from hook, chain 1, double crochet into same chain as first dc, *skip 2 chains, (dc, ch1, dc) into next chain*. Repeat from * to * ending with dc into last stitch, turn.
Row 2: chain 3, *(dc, ch1, dc) into chain 1 space* Repeat from * to * ending with dc into last stitch, turn.
Repeat row 2 for pattern for the length you want.
Edging around scarf
When you get to the length that you want start the edging of single crochet. For the next row chain 1, turn, single crochet in first double crochet, work one single crochet in each double crochet and one single crochet in chain 1 space across row, when you get to the corner put 3 single crochets in corner stitch to make a round shape, do not turn work but continue single crochets down the side of scarf working 1 single crochet per row to the next corner, work 3 single crochets in corner stitch then work 1 single crochet in each free loop across bottom row which is your foundation chain row, work 3 single crochets in corner, work 1 single crochet in each row down the last side of scarf.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
- working only one double crochet in space instead of two
- no chain between double crochets to form V
- chaining in between two V’s instead of between the two double crochets
- not working the last double crochet in top of turning chain of previous row when you get to the end of the row
- not chaining three at the end of row or beginning of row to start new row
- making the V between two V’s and not on top of last V of previous row
- every once in a while hold your work up to the light to see if all your stitches are correct
