The pages that follow show in-progress photos for the rows plus directions spelled out for beginners (see links below). The abbreviated directions for all the rows are on this page.

Materials:
Worsted Weight Yarn and US Size G hook for a scarf width of about 5 inches - see page 2 for yarn used in the example above.
Gauge: 4 rows = 2 inches; two 4-dc shells = 2 inches (measuring at top of shells)

For a wider scarf, you could use worsted weight yarn with a size H or I hook. For a narrower scarf, you could use sport weight yarn with a size F or G hook.

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
ea = each
sc = single crochet
sp = space

Starting Chain: Chain 17.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in ea ch across. (16 sc)
Row 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in same sc, * skip next 2 sc, 4 dc in next sc **, repeat the directions between * and ** 3 more times, then skip next 2 sc, 2 dc in last sc.
Row 3: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in next dc, skip next dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next dc (V-Stitch made), * skip next 3 dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next dc **, repeat the directions between * and ** 2 more times, then skip next 2 dc, dc in ea of last 2 dc.

Repeat Rows: Repeat rows 3 and 4 for pattern, as many times as needed for the length that you desire (48 inches is an average scarf length; the super long scarves that have been popular are about 95 inches in length).

Last Row: When you have the length desired, add one row in sc. (16 sc)
