V Stitch Ridge Scarf – Free Crochet Pattern

92Shares

Although winter is beginning to wind down, it’s still snowy and below zero where I live so scarves are definitely needed. This pretty and textured scarf was a fun design to work on and created such a beautiful and eye catching finished result.

A simple ridged border is paired with a classic v stitch centre making this scarf a wonderful addition to your winter accessories. It would also be a cozy addition for cooler days in the spring and fall. Learn how to make this crochet scarf below…

Materials Needed:
–  Approximately 392 yards of worsted weight yarn. I used WeCrochet Heatherly in the “Gravity” colourway
– 4mm hook (I used my Furls Teak Streamline)
– Yarn needle (bent tip needles making weaving in easy!)
– Scissors (these are a favourite)
– Measuring tape (this retractable one is very handy!)

Stitches:
CH – Chain
SS – Slip Stitch
SK – Skip Stitch
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
BLHDC – Back Loop Half Double Crochet

Special Stitch Tutorial:
Half Double Crochet V Stitch – This stitch is made by placing 1 HDC, CH 1, 1 HDC together all into one stitch. Typically the V stitches in the rows that follow get made within the CH 1 space of the previous’ row V stitch.
Detailed Tutorial: Click here

Back Loop Half Double Crochet (BLHDC) – Work 1 HDC into the back loop of the stitch instead of the traditional 2 loops at the top of the stitch. The back loop is the one furthest from you.


Pattern:
Begin with CH 26

Row 1:
Into the second CH from your hook and each stitch across, place 1 HDC. CH 1 and turn.

(25 HDC stitches)

Row 2:
Into each of the first 5 stitches, place 1 BLHDC and then SK the 6th stitch. *Into the next stitch place 1 HDC, CH 1, 1 HDC. SK the next stitch.* Repeat from * to * 6 more times. Place 1 BLHDC into each of the last 5 stitches. CH 1 and turn.

(10 HDC stitches, 7 Half Double Crochet V Stitches)

Row 3:
Into each of the first 5 stitches, place 1 BLHDC and then SK the 6th stitch. *Into the next CH 1 space, place 1 HDC, CH 1, 1 HDC. SK the next 2 stitches.* Repeat from * to * 5 more times. Place 1 HDC, CH 1, 1 HDC into the last CH 1 space and SK 1 stitch. Place 1 BLHDC into each of the last 5 stitches. CH 1 and turn.

(10 HDC stitches, 7 Half Double Crochet V Stitches)

Rows 4-157:
Repeat row 3

Row 158:
(BLHDC ends here. Work a traditional HDC into all HDC stitches, skipping over each CH 1) We need to return back to 25 stitches to match row 1. Place 1 HDC only into the top two loops of the HDC stitches from row 157. To make 25 stitches, please make 2 HDC into any one stitch within this row. I recommend somewhere in the middle so it doesn’t add any bulk at the side. After the final stitch, fasten off and weave in all ends.

(25 HDC stitches)
