|See the chainless starting double crochet stitches! No holes on the sides!|
Notes: If you prefer, you can replace the starting chainless foundation double crochet with starting 27 ch, then make a row of dc stitches.
For a nicer look, without holes, start each row with chainless starting double crochet (csdc) instead of ch3; but you can choose what it works best for you.
The csdc will look much better, if at the end of each row, you will first work the beginning csdc for the next row and turn your work only after.
Pattern: (See also the Crochet Chart at the end of this post!)
Row 1: Start with 25 fdc, turn (25 sts)
(Alternative: start with 27 ch, work 1 dc into 4th ch from hook and 1dc into each ch across; turn) (25 sts)
Row 2: csdc, 1dc into each of next 2 sts, (1ch, sk 3 sts, 1 V-st into each of next 2 sts, 1 ch, sk 3 sts, 1 dc into each of next 3 sts ) x 2 times; turn
Row 3: csdc, 1 dc into each of next 2 sts, (1 ch, 1 V-st into each ch space of next 2 V-sts, 1 ch, 1dc into each of next 3 sts) x 2 times; turn
Repeat row 3 until you get to the desired length. I made 144 rows.
Row before the edging: csdc, 1 dc into each st across, inclusive into the ch spaces of the V-sts. (25 sts) Turn.
Edging: 1 ch, 1 sc into very first st, 3 ch, work 1 dc2tog, inserting the hook into next st for first leg of the decrease stitch, (3 ch, sk 1st, 1 sc, 3 ch, sk 1st, 1 dc2tog)x 4 times, 3ch, 1 sc into top of ch3.
Cut yarn. Fasten off. Weave in the ends.
Join yarn at the other end of the scarf and repeat the edging pattern above.
