Free Lacey Crochet Scarf Pattern


Free Lacey Scarf Pattern!

I recently made this for a customer, it turned out so elegant and lovely I decided to share it on my blog.

You will need:
approximately 330 yards of Dk or worsted weight yarn ( I used AllHemp6 in Aubergine)
size 9 mm and 4.5 mm crochet hooks
Darn needle
Gauge:  Not really to important as this is lacey.
I suggest if you need to join in this scarf because you need more than one ball of wool, do the join on the stitch at the beginning or ending of a row so the end can be woven into the Sc edge.  
with larger hook
Row 1:  Chain 20,  sc in second chain from hook, *skip 2 chain, 5 dc in next chain, skip 2 chain, sc in next chain, repeat from * 2 more times.  3 shells.
Row 2:  Chain 3, 2 dc in first sc, *skip 2 dc, sc in next dc, skip 2 dc, 5 dc in next sc,  repeat from * 1 more time, then skip 2 dc, sc in next  dc, skip 2 dc, 3 dc in last sc.  2 full shells, and 2 1/2 shells.
Row 3: Chain 1, sc in first dc, *skip 2 dc, 5 dc in next sc, skip 2 dc, sc in next dc, repeat from * 2 times more.

Repeat row's 2 & 3 to desired length.  The length of the Scarf I made was about 60" long.
Fasten off.  Do not weave in ends.
Sc Edging:  With smaller hook:
Row 1:  Join with a sc to any stitch, (except a corner),  you will now work 2 sc in each stitch, 3-4 sc in each corner, some of the stitches that are smaller may only require 1 sc, you will want the edge to lay fairly flat, it shouldn't ruffle.  If you find the edge ruffling, try working 1sc in one stitch and then 2 sc in next and repeat that pattern. 

I hope you enjoy this pattern and Happy Crafting!!
You may use this pattern for personal use only, not for items to be sold.

  1. Great design! It looks really tough to make! I wish I can knit. The last time I knitted with was AGES ago was a never-ending ('cos I didn't know how to end) plain "cloth".. :) It was supposed to be a scarf. :)

    God Bless

  7. Fabulous!! but i think i see an error in the pattern? it says on row 1:
    ""*skip 2 chain, 5 dc, skip 2 dc,"" shouldn't that be ""skip 2 sc"" at the end there??

  9. This is a beautiful scarf. I am new to crocheting and have 1oz (218 yds) of qiviuk. Do you think that's enough to make this scarf?
    Thanks!

  10. You could make it thinner or you try it shorter? If you make it and it is shorter than undo it and chalk it up as practice. :)

  11. I recently made this scarf in a rose color worsted weight yarn. It is beautiful and worked up quickly and easily. I plan to play with different yarn types and colors. My aunt was visiting and also fell in love with the scarf. I just shared this link with her. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Hi, my name is Maria, im trying to make this scarf, I love the pattern, but im not sure if I should use a N-9.00mm hook or a M hook....help!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Marcos, Be fearless!! Give it a go. It won't be as loose of a lace but the it will probably be darn close. The pattern calls for a 10mm hook and dk weight yarn, but you could use a 9 mm hook and a lace weight yarn. You may want to make the scarf wider though by adding more shells. Have fun!!

  19. I don't know if you still check this post for comments or not, but I figured I would try anyway - I'm a newbie at crochet and I understand your pattern all for a couple things - when you say "3 Shells" does that mean I must then make 3 shell stitches? If so - single, double...I'm lost. lol. Though it doesn't take much :)

    Thanks!

  20. This turned out so lovely :) I am going to use this pattern as a basis for other creations! Many Blessing Happy Creations <3

  21. Question: I'm reading the instructions and want to make sure I understand every step before beginning. When it says like chain 3 does that mean that it's time to create three chain links? I've only ever done one chain link at the start of a row, so I'm curious. This will be my first fancy scarf and I am excited.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi Gabriella,
    Yes, you will need to make 3 chain stitches in a row, the same chain stitch you use at the beginning of the pattern to create the base. I hope this makes sense. It might take a while to get used to using a larger hook making stitches but just relax and have fun. Its a very repetitive stitch pattern.

  23. I don't see where the error was corrected. I would love to make this scarf, Lacey crochet scarf but would like to know if a mistake was printed, it not on the pattern.

  24. as far as I can tell, a 9mm hook is a size N and a 4.5 mm hook is a G or G7. you can use this handy conversion chart here: http://www.karpstyles.com/crochet/hook-chart.html

  29. Hi :-)
    This is such a lovely scarf pattern. I want to make it. Was wondering if the terminologies used are UK terminologies.

  31. Thanks for the awesome pattern! I just wrote it down and plan on using it for several people on my Christmas list this year. :)

  32. I like to make my own patterns or modify others too, but I never would have thought of making the shells so close together like that to make it bubbly. Love it! I have a verigated yarn of redish-orange, cranberry, and plum and it's turning out amazing! Will be a gift for my sister.

  33. I am really excited to make this scarf... one question. I'm on row 3 and I am assuming you mean to end on a sc in the top of the ch3? I've crocheted enough to know this makes sense... just wanted to be sure. Thanks for making this pattern available :)

  34. Hi, im 14 and ths will be my first decorative scarf, thanks! But i was wondering (it's a stupid question but oh well) are you working from the ends up or the sides? And what type of needle should i use for yarn that is 142 grams wide and 388 yards long? Thanks again! Its a Christmas gift for my grandmother (who taught me how to crochet in the first place) and i dont want it to look aweful..... Merry Christmas!

    1. Hi Tally,
      You are making short rows, back and forth so I guess working up the ends. I would use the 10mm as indicated, it makes it nice and lacey. Hope this helps and best of luck with your project!

  37. Hello,

    I'm starting a crochet diary blog having re-taken up crochet again. This pattern was the first thing I made and is the first thing I'm going to write about.

    I wondered if its ok to reference you as the source? (I'm new to blogging and just wanted to make sure that I get my permissions/copyright stuff correct.

    Thanks!

  38. I was searching for a new crochet pattern for a UNIQUE scarf-- I found yours.... so THANKS!
    I copied it & hope to start crocheting tomorrow. LOVELY pattern with row of alternating shells.

  39. I have a bit of a newbie question...Are you stitching into the front loops of the stitch or the entire stitch?

    Thanks!

  40. Thank you for sharing this pattern! I found it on Pinterest, I have used it twice. This is really pretty and fun to work. Thank you again!

  41. not to sound stupid but what is dk short for

    ReplyDelete
  42. DK stands for Double Knitting and refers to a weight of yarn. DK Yarn is lighter in weight than worsted. :)

  46. I am thrilled to print this pattern, thank you! I had purchased some nice variegated yarn to make my adult daughter an 'infinity' scarf (in the round), but after trying to be so careful not to twist the yarn (as warned to be in the pattern), I found I couldn't keep the twist out! I tried 4 times, was so careful, and now gave up. I was looking for another nice scarf pattern to substitute and yours looks perfect. Thanks!! Anna

  49. Chriss, thank you so much for posting this pattern, It's easy and quick. It is my favourite scarf pattern by far. I have made a few of them in different colours, yarn weights and hooks. Today, I am attempting to make fingerless gloves using the same pattern. So far, so good. Happy Hooking!
