Easy One Skein Double Crochet Scarf Pattern

Sharing is caring!

Who doesn’t love an easy to make double crochet scarf that you can sit and watch TV while you stitch?

And to make it even better, you can make this scarf with just one skein of Mandala Yarn.

I don’t know about you, but the one thing I can’t stand when doing double crochet is how the beginning of each row looks. No matter how hard you try, the turning chains just seem to ruin the look for me. So with this double crochet scarf, I decided to try something new, instead of a turning chain I did a single crochet into the first stitch and then another single crochet into that single crochet. The result? A much better looking edge on the scarf.

Starting Stitch for the Double Crochet Rows:

Instead of doing a turning chain, to start a row of double crochet you will turn your work and do a single crochet stitch into the 1st stitch of the row and then do another single crochet into the top of the single crochet you just made.

Doing a single crochet into a single crochet instead of a turning chain at the beginning of the row.
