single crochet stitch.
It gives your fabric a bit of texture and thickness which would work well for a warm hat or scarf. This fabric would also work well for a purse.
Multiples of 2 plus 1 chain
Start with a chain 11 (10 + 1ch)
Row 1: single crochet in second chain from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2: chain 1, turn; skip the first stitch, 2sc in next stitch, *skip next sc and 2sc in the next stitch * repeat within the *stars* across
Repeat the pattern until you are comfortable with it
To use this in a scarf pattern, you first need to figure out how many stitches across and how many rows your crochet piece is with your yarn, hook and tension.
To do this crochet a piece 4" x 4".
How many rows did you get?
How many stitch patterns did you get?
Scarf Measurements = 5" across by 60" long
Example: I used a H crochet hook with 4ply Acrylic yarn. 5" worked out to 18 chain plus 1 for my foundation row and I got 13 rows per 4". This means I'll probably crochet between 52 - 65 rows in order to get my 60".
