5 Little Monsters: Alternating V-Stitch Infinity Scarf

Alternating V-Stitch Infinity Scarf

One of my favorite things to make with striped cake type yarns, like Lion Brand Mandala or Caron Cakes, etc., is infinity scarfs. The long color changes give the scarves a color blocked look. I feel like the abrupt color changes are not as noticeable as they are in something larger and flatter like a blanket. For this scarf I used Lion Brand Mandala Sparkle in Aquarius.

I made this particular scarf as a gift and I wanted something that was going to be a little more open stitch pattern, something that would be more of a spring scarf. 

I decided on a v-stitch but I wanted to do it a little different that the traditional v-stitch where you work the v's into the v's of the row below. On this scarf I instead separated the v's with chain stitches and then on the next row I worked into the center chain. This gives an open, almost mesh-like fabric to the scarf.

How to Crochet the Alternating V-Stitch Infinity Scarf

You will need:


ch 31 

Row 1: (dc, ch 1, dc) in the 5th ch from the hook [skip 3 ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch] repeat until there are only 2 ch left, skip next ch, dc in last ch 

Row 2: ch 6 (counts as first dc plus ch 3), skip first v stitch, [work a v-stitch (dc, ch 1, dc) in center ch of ch 3, skip next v-stitch] repeat to the end, ending with a ch 3 and a dc in the last stitch

Row 3: ch 3 (counts as first dc), skip first ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch, [skip next v-stitch and ch after, work a v-stitch (dc, ch 1, dc) in the center ch] repeat until end, ending with a dc in the last stitch

Repeat rows 2 and 3 ending with a row 2

Stitch the 2 short ends together to make a circle

You may need to block the scarf to open up the stitch pattern
