With this Beginner Crochet Scarf, you can use only two stitches to create this Double Moss stitch copycat knit look. Single crochets and chains are all you’ll need.
It’s that little bit of texture that gives you a look of Double Moss stitch or even a Mock Rib. It’s subtle and elegant, perfect for anyone.

My Crochet Pattern Notes
This is the kind of scarf I would have made when I was the technique teacher for Crochet 1-2-3 magazine. The best part of this scarf is that it’s beginner level but it doesn’t look beginner level. It’s elegant and subtle, a perfect gift for anyone.

I’ve used DK weight yarn (size 3) because I love this size. There’s a lot of yardage on a 100g skein. You could use any yarn you like, using the hook size you prefer. You may need to make changes to the number of stitches and the amount of yarn required.
Use any DK weight yarn you like and there are some gorgeous samples which would work great for you. James C Brett Marble DK looks like an almost exact match. Have a look at: Lion Brand Moroccan Nights Yarn (this is a little heavier and may require a looser tension with adjusting the initial chain), Rico Creative Chic-Unique, James C Brett Aurora,

Yarn Needle for weaving ends.
This Knit Look Beginner Crochet Scarf pattern is written in US crochet terminology.
ch=chain; rep=repeat; sc=single crochet; sk=skip; sp(s)=space(s).
All numbers after the colon at the end of an instruction are stitch counts. Use the stitch count to check your work.
22 stitches for 12 rows measures approximately 4×4″. Use the stitch multiple to change the width. Gauge isn’t critical since you can use any weight yarn, changing the hook size for your preferred tension.
To change the width, make your initial chain any multiple of 3, then add 3.
I love the Multiple of 3. In order to find out if any number is a multiple of 3, add all the digits together and, if the end result is a multiple of 3, then the full number is a multiple of 3.
Examples: 42 is 4+2=6. 6 is a multiple of 3 so 42 is too. 252 is 2+5+2=9. 9 is a multiple of 3 so 252 is too.
