How to crochet a lace scarf- free pattern

Hello my beautiful crocheters, today I’ll show you how to crochet a beautiful lace scarf.

I’ve made this scarf for my beautiful sister and she is crazy in love with it. She wears it all the time: in spring and autumn as a lovely scarf, in cool summer evenings to cover her shoulders and in winter: the city slicker knot it looks lovely with her coat.

Tip: how to make a city slicker knot: fold the scarf in half lengthwise and wrap it around your neck, then pull the loose ends through the loop that was created by the fold.

If it’s easy for you to learn from a video, I’ve made a youtube tutorial, that you can see below, to show you how it’s done, just hit “play”.

For my sister scarf I used cotton yarn and 2mm hook. This pattern is very easy to crochet even for beginners.

You will need:

350g cotton yarn (use your favorite brand);

2mm hook (or what hook size is indicated on the label)’

Scissors.

Skill level: easy+

Abbreviations:

ch= chain;

sc= single crochet;

dc= double crochet.

Pattern Instructions:

To make a project with this pattern you have to make multiple of 14 chain, I wrote the pattern for 28 chain for helping you to see how the patten is shaping.

    another platform. I woᥙld be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    1. I don’t know how it will look with mandala yarn, but you can try to make a sample: 28 chains and work the pattern for 12 rows, that way you will see how the pattern looks like and how many chains you will need for a scarf. I will send you the pdf on email.

    1. This pattern ask for multiple of 14 chains, I wrote the pattern for 28 for helping everyone to understand how to continue the pattern. Maybe the video will be more helpful, and easier to understand the pattern.
      Is very simple: you work 14 stitches as the pattern says and then work from the first dc repeating the pattern.

      1. Hi, I have also completed the first 12 rows but am not sure how to carry on with the pattern. Can you let me know how to work row 13 please?

        1. I think the easier way is this: if look at the row 12 you will see that is exactly like row 4, so after you make the 12 row you continue with row 5 (so the 13 row is like row 5, row 14 is like row 6, row 15 is like row 7, row 16 is like row 8, row 17 is like row 9, row 18 is like row 10, row 19 is like row 11, row 20 is like 12, row 21 is like row 5, and you repeat like that).

  9. I’ve been trying to increase this pattern to create the scarf, but have not had any luck figuring out the correct sequence. Do you have the actual pattern for the scarf available?

    1. This pattern ask for multiple of 14 chains, I wrote the pattern for 28 for helping everyone to understand how to continue the pattern. Maybe the video will be more helpful, and easier to understand the pattern.

  10. I want to make this scarf wider. You mention to increase in multiples of 14 chain. I am not sure how to change the pattern to include more stitches. Where do I repeat the pattern from? Hope you understand what I am asking. Thanks for your help.

  11. Beautiful pattern, is there a PDF to print out the pattern without all the pictures??? If so could you list it on the site with your scarf?? Thank you, Bonita

    1. I would also love to have a .pdf version of this pattern! It ‘s so lovely, and would make a great project for a long plane ride I have coming up soon! However, I need the pattern printed in a more condensed form that doesn’t include all the pictures. Don’t misunderstand: I love the pictures! I just need a different, more portable format.

      1. When you say “4 times wider”, do you mean 4 x14 (56 chains wide), or 4 x 28 (112 chains wide)?

        I’m a beginner crocheter, but I really like your scarf and want to give it a try. I will watch your video for assistance, as I need to see the stitches as they are being made. Thank you for sharing.

        1. I think it was 112 chains, but my yarn was very thin. I recommend you to make a sample with your yarn: make 28 chains and work the pattern for 12 rows, this way you will see how the pattern looks like and how many chains you will need for a scarf.
