Here it is my very first crochet pattern I have written, and am presenting to you for free. I designed it a couple of years ago, but I just now getting brave enough to share it.
Double V Shell Scarf with Scalloped Edges
Intermediate (If using Homespun, because it is a bulky yarn and hard to crochet with, I do not recommend beginners use this yarn.) Using any Easy (If using any 4 ply worst weight yarn, see suggestions below).
Gage: Not important
Lion Brand Homespun Yarn 2 Skeins, color of your choice
(Or for a not so bulky look use any 4 ply worsted weight (non-bulky) yarn, color of choice and a H hook. Ideal yarns would be Vanna’s Choice, Caron Simply Soft, I Love This Yarn, Red Heart Super Saver, Red Heart Soft, or Loops and Threads.)
Crochet hook size I
Special Stitches: Double V Shell = 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in same space, will be referred to as dvs in pattern below.
Ch 23 (28 for worsted weight).
Row 1. dvs in 4th ch from hook (see above for instructions on how to make dvs), skip 4 ch, dvs in 5th ch, repeat across. A total of 5 (6) Double V Shells. Ch 3 turn.
Here is what the Double V Shell (dvs) stitch looks like. For the sample pictures I used a regular 4 ply worsted weight yarn so you could see the dvs stitch.
End of Row 1
Row 2. dvs in the top of the 2 ch space of the dvs in previous row, (in the center top of shell) repeat across. Ch 3 turn.
End of Row 2, you can now see the scalloped edges starting to form.
Rows 3-79 (or to desired length): Repeat row 2. Ch 3 turn. At the end of row 79 Ch 4 turn. Finished length before fringe is 80”, with fringe is 88”.
I used about a 1 1/2 skeins of yarn in my scarf to make it 80 inches long. I like a nice long scarf that I can wrap around my neck to keep me warm.
Row 80: sc in the top of the 2 ch space of the dvs in previous row, ch 4, repeat across. Do not fasten off.
Pretend this is row 80. Chain 4, sl st to the in the center top of the dvs stitch and repeat across.
Close up of chain fringe below:
Chain Fringe: ch 35, sl st in center of 4 ch sp, repeat across. Fasten off. Attach yarn to the opposite end of the scarf (the beginning), in the center bottom of the dvs, ch 35, sl st in to the center of 4 ch sp, repeat across. Fasten off. Work in ends.
Sl st into center top of dvs
