This lovely and easy ruffle scarf is the perfect one skein project.
If you have been crocheting for a few years then I am sure you have come across several ruffle scarf designs. It is an easy go to kind of crochet scarf.
But, let’s give this style of scarf a little update. That update is just using a nice high quality hand dyed yarn. Have you ever come across a yarn shop with some very pretty hand dyed yarns?
I’m sure it is very hard to resist not grabbing just 1 skein of those fancy yarns. And that is how I have ended up with a few hand dyed single skeins of yarn without projects in mind for them.
This crochet pattern I hope will help relieve that thought about what to make with that one fancy skein of fingering weight yarn that may be lying around.

This style scarf is called a ruffle scarf or spiral scarf. It’s shape is created by adding multiple stitches or increases in each stitch of the foundation row. Basically, the first row will be about double the stitches contained in the foundation row.
Adding these extra stitches is what begins to shape the spiral or ruffle of the scarf. The second row of this scarf also contains some increases. So, the last 3 rows are the same repeat.
The main stitch used throughout is the V stitch. The V stitch consists of 2 double crochets that are separated by a chain. The V stitch is explained more in the special stitch section of the pattern.
Now, are you ready to make your own easy ruffle scarf?
