This free pattern is great for practicing double crochets and working through chain spaces. But you don’t have to be a beginner to love this scarf. It’s one of those patterns that’s good for anyone whether you’re making it for yourself, a family member, or selling it at a craft fair! First we’ll talk about how to make the v stitch in crochet, then we’ll talk about crochet scarf measurements, and then we’ll get on with the Double Crochet V Stitch Scarf pattern!
V Stitch scarves are my favorite kinds of scarf to make because they work up quickly and they are absolutely beautiful in every color. The v stitch, in my opinion, is the best crochet stitch for a scarf. It looks like it could be complicated, but it’s really simple and never disappoints.
In fact, this v stitch scarf works up so quickly that I bet you could have one of these finished within a few hours, depending on how long you decide to make it. Yes, even if you’re a beginner! And speaking of that, let’s talk crochet scarf measurements.
How wide should a crochet scarf be?
This particular scarf pattern measures about 7.5 inches wide. I did this because I decided to turn it into an infinity scarf and didn’t want it to be too bulky. Normally, I like to make my crochet scarves around 8-10 inches wide. If you’d like to change the width of your scarf, watch the video tutorial for a full explanation or check the “How do I resize the Double Crochet V Stitch Scarf Pattern?” section below.
How long should a crochet scarf be?
It depends on the look you want and who you’re making it for. For today’s V Stitch Scarf, I decided to make it about 56 inches long and then turned it into an infinity scarf.
If you’re looking to make a traditional crochet scarf, the typical length is around 65 inches. But really, you can make it any size.
There are scarves that wrap around once and leave the ends loose so you can throw it over your shoulder. Or you can make it longer and turn it into an infinity scarf to wrap around your neck twice. These are my favorite kinds of scarves and that’s why I decided on this type of design. They make me feel extra cozy.
Within the video tutorial, I show you how to make both kinds of scarves so go check it out if you’re interested in that.
How do I resize the Double Crochet V Stitch Scarf Pattern?
Good question! Because we’re using a special stitch, it’ll take just a little bit of math to make sure your measurements come out right. But don’t worry it’s nothing that will scare you away. Let’s do the math together.
To resize the width:
The v stitch that we’ll be using today requires a foundation chain in multiples of 3.
To resize the width of the v stitch scarf crochet pattern, you will chain until you’ve reached your desired length. Make sure that the amount of chains you have can be evenly divided by 3.
To resize the length:
Continue adding rows to make it longer or lessen the amount of rows to make it shorter.
How do you crochet the V Stitch?
To crochet the v stitch we will be working with double crochets (treble crochet if you’re in the UK) and in between chain spaces. Each set of double crochets with create a v shape and that’s why it’s called the V Stitch!
If you’ve never worked through the chain space, be sure to watch the video tutorial to see exactly how to do this. It’s a very simple stitch especially if you follow along with the video, so don’t feel intimidated. You got this!
