This stitch pattern incorporates treble crochet plus chain stitch and half double crochet. It makes full use of the treble crochet's height, yet the trebles don't look spindly, gangly, or awkward as they do when worked in plain rows.
This scarf utilizes the lacy treble shell stitch mirror-imaged to create a perfectly symmetrical design.
As pictured, the scarf is crocheted using three colors of yarn. If you'd rather not mess around with color changes and weaving in bunches of loose ends, you can ignore the color changes and work the scarf in a single solid color.
