After a few personal and global tragedies I have finally found one thing that brightens up this grim November. The temperature has dropped enough for me to wear scarves in this subtropical climate. I know it’s simple, but it is these simple moments of joy throughout our day that have been proven to lead to long term happiness (read more about crochet and happiness here !) I want to share my current favorite free crochet v stitch scarf pattern on the blog today.

Materials needed to make the V stitch crochet scarf:
Knitpicks has a few really gorgeous and very affordable yarn choices (I plan on doing a review on here in the near future) and I used Mighty stitch to make this super easy v stitch crochet scarf pattern in the colors:
Canary, Silver, and White
size H / 5m hook if you are using the Mighty stitch yarn. adjust hook size according to your yarn!
I used my new yarn ball winder and made my own yarn cake (for more information on how to diy one of these yummy cakes go here!) but you could easily use any of the sweet Caron cakes or even Wolltraum cakes to follow this pattern! You will need about 200 grams or 7 oz of worsted weight yarn. I made my cake with 2 balls of Silver, 2 balls of White and 1 ball of Canary weighing around 20 grams each. Make your color sequence as follows: Silver, White, Canary, White, Silver if you are crafting your own yarn cake.
Why I like this free crochet V stitch scarf pattern
The V stitch is very easy to learn and works up surprisingly quick. I love the texture of this scarf and how soft the wool blend of the Mighty stitch yarn feels. The colors are neutral enough to go with anything, but the yellow adds a little interest. It also seems to be one of my preferred color choices at the moment.
ch …. chain stitch
dc … double crochet
fdcdec … fake double crochet decrease:
Work this like a dc decrease but it’s made into a single st. Work as follows:
yarn over (yo), insert hook into indicated st, yo and pull up a loop (lp), yo and pull through 2, yo, insert hook into same st, yo and pull up a lp, yo and pull through 2 lps, yo and pull through all remaining lps on hook.
Vst … V stitch:
work (dc, ch1, dc) into same st
Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook, sk next st, *make v stitch in next st, sk next 2 st, repeat from * to last V stitch, sk 1 make a fdcdec in last st
Row 2: ch 2, dc in same st, *make a Vst in ch1 space of Vst of previous row, repeat from * to end, work a fdcdec in last st
work same as Row 2 until your scarf reaches the desired length (around 2 yards)
fasten off, leave a long enough tail for sewing the two ends together, use the whip stitch (for easy to follow instructions go here) to sew your two ends together.
