Here is a free crochet pattern for a trendy women's scarf. The sample was made with Lion Brand Fancy Fur eyelash yarn.
The stitch used is a variation of the V-stitch; it is based on the crochet V-stitch in brick repeat.
If you're feeling adventurous, you could try experimenting with other eyelash yarns or even other types of yarn when you work this scarf. I have worked several swatches of this V-stitch pattern using smoother yarns, and they turned out lovely, although they look completely different than the sample shown.
Abbreviations Used in This Pattern:
In this crochet pattern, a V-stitch is defined in the following way. Work one double crochet stitch, one chain stitch, and one more double crochet stitch. In row 1, all 3 of these stitches will be worked in the same chain. In rows 2 and up, they will all be worked in the same space.
Yarn: 2-3 balls of Lion Brand Fancy Fur. Fancy Fur is a super bulky eyelash yarn.
The sample scarf completely used 2 balls of yarn. If you want to work gauge swatches beforehand, or make your scarf longer or wider than the one shown in the sample, you will need 3 balls of Fancy Fur. Otherwise, 2 balls will suffice.
Color: The color shown here is known as "stained glass black;" the main color of the yarn is black, and there are accents of bright purple turquoise, and blue.
This yarn is available in a wide variety of other colors. If you do not like the color I've chosen, you have plenty of other options.
Finished Size of the Scarf:
What Happens if Your Gauge Is Different?:
If your first 6 rows are wider than 8 inches, you will probably need more than 2 balls of Fancy Fur to crochet a scarf of wearable length.
Other than that, nothing particularly tragic will happen if your gauge is slightly different than mine.
The row gauge is not critical for this project.
If your scarf ends up being wider, it will probably look really luxurious, assuming you bought enough yarn to complete it. You'll need at least 3 balls of yarn.
If your scarf turns out to be narrower, it will still look chic and sophisticated. Many crocheted scarves are signficantly narrower than this one is, so it will not be a problem if yours turns out narrower.
All this holds true as long as your gauge isn't way off. After the first 6 rows, evaluate the scarf; as long as you're satisfied with the width and you have enough yarn, all will be well.
Design Note: The turning chains always count as 1 dc.
Row 1: The first 3 chs count as 1 dc. Dc in 4th ch from hook, (ch 1, skip next 3 chs, work a V-stitch in 4th chain.) Repeat sequence inside parentheses 1 more time. Ch 1, skip next 3 chs, work 1 dc in each of the last 2 sts.
Row 2: ch 2, turn. Dc in next dc, ch 1, work a V-stitch in the next space, (ch 1, skip the next V-stitch, work a V-stitch in the following space.) Repeat sequence inside parentheses 1 more time. Ch 1, dc in next dc, dc in last dc.
Row 3: ch 2, turn. Dc in next dc, (ch 1, skip next V-stitch, work a V-stitch in the following space.) Repeat sequence inside parentheses 1 more time. Ch 1, skip the last V-stitch, dc in next dc, dc in last dc.
Rows 4 and Up: Repeat rows 2 and 3 again as many times as necessary to make the scarf as long as you want it to be.
Finishing the Scarf:
End off. Weave in loose ends. Blocking is not necessary.
