The Diamond Tessera Fringe Scarf is crocheted with the Nesting V-stitch which I first used in my Winter’s Night Rhapsody Stitch Sampler Blanket I released earlier this year.

I fell so much in love with the Nesting V-Stitch I had to see how it would look in a project and came up with this fun crochet scarf with fringe!

Crochet Scarf with Fringe Pattern Details

This Nesting V-stitch reminds me so much of a geometric diamond mosaic tile pattern!  The V-stitches are worked on top of one another in rows below which creates a really interesting appearance and a dense, warm fabric – perfect for scarves.

I have a complete stitch tutorial for the Nesting V-Stitch which you can check out on the blog.

By working this stitch pattern in three colors changing colors each row you can drop your yarn and pull the new color into your work without adding ends to weave in. Then by working a round of single crochet stitches around the outside edge you can cover those yarn jogs from pulling your yarn back into your work! Yay!

I wanted to add a fun and unique fringe to the bottom edges of the scarf which would mimic the appearance of the V-stitches in the scarf and decided to add Knotted Fringe.  

The knotted fringe starts out with a standard fringe along the edge of your project.  If you need to learn how to add fringe you can check out my complete photo and video tutorial for this technique.  Once you have added your standard fringe you can then knot the fringes together.  I have a complete photo and video tutorial to help you with knotting fringe.

Knotted Fringe Tutorial

I had some Lion Brand Basic Stitch premium yarn I had snagged on clearance lying around begging to be used together in a project – just one skein of each color!  Unfortunately, this yarn is now discontinued but a wonderful substitution would be Lion Brand Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling yarn.*  A medium worsted weight yarn that resists pilling and is perfect for use in projects that will be getting a lot of wear – perfect for scarves!  And so many different colors available, too!
