Crochet V-Stitch Scarf!

DSC_9115Today I am sharing with you the pattern to this crochet v-stich scarf! There are so many different ways you can make this, but I love extra long infinity scarves that you can loop around a couple of times. This one is really simple, and works up pretty fast, and is super easy to customize however you want it!

1. To begin, make a chain that is a multiple of 3, plus 2. DSC_90602. Skip the first 3 chains (counts as first double crochet), and double crochet in 4th chain from hook. DSC_9063_FotorDSC_90643. Skip 2 chain stitches. Double crochet, ch1, double crochet in next ch stitch. DSC_90674. Skip 2 chain stitches. Double crochet, ch1, double crochet in next stitchDSC_90715. Continue steps 3 and 4 until you get to the final 4 chain stitches.DSC_9074Skip 2 chains, and work one double crochet in each of the last two chain stitches. DSC_9078DSC_90816. Ch 3 (counts as first double crochet of the next row) and turnDSC_9084_Fotor7. Double crochet in the second double crochet of previous round. I marked it with a star in the previous picture. Now you will be working out of the ch1 spaces from the previous round. In the first ch1 space, work double crochet, ch1, double crochet. DSC_90938. Continue working a double crochet, ch1, double crochet in the remaining ch1 spaces from the previous round. DSC_90969. When you reach the end, you will have a double crochet, and the beginning chain3 front the previous row and you will work a double crochet in each.

DSC_9097So each row will begin with two double crochets and end with two double crochets. Keep repeating steps 6-9 until it is as long as you like!DSC_9101DSC_9104I made mine with a 7 mm hooks from KnitPicks. I like the stitches looser and using a bigger hook made it go a little faster. DSC_9121The first one I made was solid gray and made from Caron Simply Soft and I used about two and a half skeins.. I loved the way it turned out! It is long enough to wrap around twice and is actually really warm. DSC_9105The navy, cream and gray color block scarf was made using Hobby Lobby’s Soft Secret yarn. I really liked the colors of the yarn, but I don’t know if I would use it again for this scarf. I feel like it stretches a little more than I would like, and it splits a lot while I worked.

There are so many different color combinations you can use. I started making a striped one, but haven’t finished it yet. Changing colors took more time than I realized and I got a little burnt out. But, I think it is really pretty, and plan on finishing it soon!DSC_8715I hope that this is easy to follow! If you have any questions, pleas let me know! And, as usual, if you make anything with this pattern, I would love to see it! You can follow me on Instagram at @lizzie_bella_ and on Twitter @lizziebellablog!

 

Isaac Mizrahi

Somehow I missed that Isaac Mizrahi was creating a yarn line for Michaels. As a huge Project Runway fan, I was excited to check it out! I wasn’t super excited about the colors when looking at it on the website, but I decided to take a trip to Michaels to see it anyway. IMG_5693.JPGI usually really don’t like variegated yarn. I don’t know why, but I just really hate it. I’m still not a huge fan of most of the color combinations, but there were a couple I really liked. Also, I watched this video on YouTube of Isaac Mizrahi, and I fell in love with the scarf he was holding and decided I had to make it. So, I ended up bringing home 4 skeins of the Sutton yarn in YorkDSC_8718I found the pattern here on the Michael’s website. It was really quick and easy to make, and I love how long and thick it turned out. I’m also really happy with the fringe! I’ve tried adding fringe to other scarves before, and it just looked bad, so I’m really excited that this looks good! Too bad it is still in the 80s here in Florida. We still have a while until it is cold enough to wear this!DSC_8739Overall, I really like the yarn! I love the colors and the way they look in the scarf. One thing I don’t love about the yarn is how much it sheds. I do think it is a little expensive, but I definitely would like to try more!DSC_8744I haven’t tried any of the other Isaac Mizrahi yarn yet, but so far, I’m impressed!
