Lacey Scarf Crochet Pattern

lacey scarf crochet pattern

This scarf is super light and airy, but still warm. You can wear it long or double it up, and because it's so loosely crocheted it's still not too bulky when doubled. I've made two for myself already, as well as various Christmas presents for friends and family. It comes together fairly quickly for a scarf, about 3-4 hours depending on how quickly you get going on it.

This is basically a modified V stitch, for those of you who already know what that means. For those of you just starting to crochet, I've included a detailed tutorial with pics below on how to make this stitch happen. It looks complicated, but once you get the hang of it, it goes really quickly! Much quicker then doing an entire scarf in a simple dc!

You will need:
I hook
1 skein of Caron simply soft yarn in the color of your choice

Key:
DC: Double Crochet
Sl St: Slip Stitch
Ch: chain
st: stitch

Row 1: Ch. 138(?) ( I know! Ugh!) Sl st to join, while somehow not twisting your chain into a mobius strip. This is hard, if someone knows an easy way to do this, please I beg you let us know in the comments below!

Row 2: ch 3, then in your sl st, dc 1. This will form a kind of triangle.

 Once you have ch 3, you will dc in the sl st of the ch 3 to create a little triangle like this:


In third st from your triangle, dc 1, ch 1, dc 1, (all in the same st, to form another triangle)
Make sure you do not ch in between the last dc of the previous triangle, and the first dc of the next. The pattern should go dc, ch 1, dc--skip 3 st--dc, ch 1, dc.

Continue this pattern until you reach the end, you should be 3 st from your first triangle. Sl st in the third ch 3 st, it will look like the very left hand edge of your first triangle:

Row 3: Ch 3, then dc into your sl st that joined your first row together:

Then, instead of skipping 3 st, you simply look for the st between your triangles, and start your next triangle in that st, with the same dc, ch 1, dc pattern.

Your next row of triangles should look like this:

Rows 4-16: *ch 3, dc in sl st of last row. Dc in st between triangles, ch 1, dc in same st. when finished with the row, sl st to join* repeat until scarf is completed!

When you have enough rows is will start to look like this:

Short Variation on the Lacey Circle Scarf:

This makes a slightly shorter, thicker scarf that is made for wearing as a loose cowl rather then doubling up.

Row 1: ch. 99, sl st to join.

Row 2: Follow instructions above, but crochet 18-30 rows for a thicker circle, width wise. I would try it on as you go, to see how much thickness and drape you like. The blue scarf above is 28 rows because I wanted it to be really thick and drape nicely.

Now go make your own! Below is part of my stack of Christmas presents (except the grey one--that baby's MINE!). I am addicted to this pattern and I hope you love it too! And as always if you make this scarf we would love to see pics. So send us a link to your creations and we may just feature what you've done on our blog!

    1. Thank you! I used and I hook for this one, but crocheted really loosely. If you want you could use a J hook as well, it might be easier to control tension with a larger hook.

  3. I love V st's - so simple but so effective!
    As for twisting the chain, may I suggest the following:
    ch 138
    do not sl st!
    ch3, turn and work the first row on the foundation chain
    at the end of the first row, slip st at the top of the ch 3, and continue in rounds
    use the tail end of your yarn, from the beginning of the foundation chain, to seam up the foundation chain, before weaving the end off
    hope this helps!

    4. What a great idea :D thank you for sharing. I have quite a few patterns that require this and I'm sure with this tip I'll save myself a lot of time and frustration. When I did a pattern like this before I often found you wouldn't realise you had a twist till the end of the first round, and sometimes you'd end up doing it several times until there was finally no twist. So I look forward to trying your suggestion as I'd love to eliminate this very frustrating problem. Thank you so much, Rosie aka Bedcrafter :)

  4. Hi, I just want to say THANK YOU for sharing this gorgeous pattern. Im starting one right now. I have been crocheting for 20 + years so to me this is easy easy. I do feel like theres one part of your instruction that could be confusing to a novice. Your instructions say "dc,ch 1, dc ---- sk 3, dc, ch 1, dc" as your pattern repeat. But in fact if you work a "v" into "every third stitch" youre only skipping 2. This threw mw off for a minute, but then I was able to figure it out by figuring the multiple used for the beginning ch. but someone new wouldnt be able to figure this so easily. Just my 2 cents. And i still think this is an amazing pattern.

    1. Thank you so much for pointing this out! I agree with you, it is a little confusing, I'll correct the original pattern. I had a hard time wrapping my brain around how to write this part of it, so it's much appreciated! I hope you'll send us some pictures of the finished product! We'd love to do a reader feature and show what you all make with our patterns.

    2. So, I am a novice. Does that mean you really skip two chains and do the v in the third? Or is it skip three do it in the fourth?

      Delete
    3. I have the exact same question is it skip two crochet in third or skip three crochet in fourth ?

      Delete
    4. I'm guessing we crochet into every 3rd based on the photo above, but I don't know for sure! Can someone clarify?

      Delete
    5. V stitch typically skips 2 ch and then dch1dc in 3rd ch

  8. I love this scarf and I just made one. However, my scarf didn't turn out nearly as long as the one in the picture. It looks more like the shorter version (though I followed the regular pattern). I used a different kind of yarn and a larger hook, so that probably has a lot to do with it. I think it turned out beautiful anyway; next time I'll just adjust. Thanks for posting this pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I've been using stitch markers, 1 every 10 stitches, to help keep the chain from turning. The first round goes kind of slow but it's better than having to undo the whole thing if you get a twist in it. I'm on my third scarf with this pattern & absolutely love it.

  10. I love this cowl. Nice and drapey. Easy to work up. I linked your pattern to my facebook group.

  12. Instead of connecting it right away with a slip stitch I decided to make it like it was a normal scarf then sewed the end together with the same color yarn.

  15. Love the short version! It created a beautiful cowl, in just a few hours. I've already started making another one!

    Just an FYI, the "skip 3" statement in your directions is very confusing, I know in an earlier comment you said you would correct it but I couldn't find the correction. Just so anyone new is looking at this, I went with the "3rd stitch from triangle" rather than the "skip 3" and it worked perfectly.
    Thanks so much for the pattern!

    1. THANK YOU! I can do basic crochet, but I've been trying to figure this out and I knew it looked wrong. so starting row 2 I chain 3, then do 2 double crochet in the slip stitch, chain 3 and then skip 2 and then double crochet?

      Delete
  16. When chaining this many stitches and then joinng it into the round I find the easiest way is to sc the chain stitches before starting the pattern, than joining to start the pattern. This makes it easier to make sure its not twisted. Hope this helps.

    1. This is what I am thinking too while reading the pattern. I am in the process of deciding for my next project.
      Seems that you've already done it. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  17. I am enjoying this project very much. I just have one question, using the hook size indicated and the foundation chain as indicated my scarf is turning out MUCH shorter than is shown in the pictures. How can I fix this so my scarf is like the ones in the pictures? As it is, if I were to double loop the finished scarf it would not hang down at all but instead look like it was trying to choke me to death. Lol.

    1. Try using a smaller hook than she did. Depending on the type of yarn and how tight/loose you crochet.

      Delete
    2. Sorry was very tired, meant to say... larger hook and thinner yarn.

  18. I found that when you do a "Chainless Foundation stitch" the twisting is easier to avoid... here is a tutorial I found, with a video. Hope it helps http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-crochet-the-chainless-single-crochet-foundation/

  19. Hillary and Jessica! Thank you so much for these instructions! I made a gray lacy circle scarf, the short variation and started an orange one (for my daughter who loves orange).

Thanks again, for generously sharing your expertise with us! Hugs, Laura Holm

  20. I am loving this pattern and starting my 2nd project. Doing a scarf instead of a cowl. How do I calculate the multiple for a longer piece. My 138 with the same yarn and an I hook is shorter than I'd like! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thank you for this pattern! Just finished the "longer" version - started with 150 stitches because I wanted it to be longer than yours appeared to be in the picture. However, I must have the Vulcan Death Grip of crochet stitching because mine is not even as long as yours starting with 138! But I love it anyway! And though yours all appeared to be solid colors, I tried mine with a variegated yarn (brown, turquoise, cream) and was pleasantly surprised. By far the trickiest part is keeping that first row from getting twisted, but after that it's smooth sailing! Especially if you have to frequently put it down and pick up later as I do. You end up with a loose, flowy scarf that would easily transition into spring with a short sleeve tee! I'll definitely be sporting mine this week! Thanks again!! :))

  22. This pattern is so great! It's exactly the look I've been trying to get. Just remember to crochet loosely and use a larger hook size (I used size K )

  23. My scarf is also much shorter than yours appears to be. Can you tell us an overall length of your scarves, both the long and shorter version. Thanks!

  25. Hi, I also just love the pattern, but found my 138 chains was just much too short. What does everyone find is a better number of chains to be able to wrap the scarf around once? I want to try the shorter version (99) today....or as soon as my new yarn arrives :) Thanks for sharing this!!!

  26. I've completed one of these scarfs and have just started my second, this one is for my daughter. I found the pattern to be very forgiving of my mistakes :)

  27. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and share this pattern! I just so happened to pick up a couple skeins of Caron Simply Soft in a burgundy/red/brown/hot pink multicolor, AND an I-9 hook today. I kid you not. I love the pattern, and it's perfect for this color combo so I'll definitely be posting a picture of the finished product! Thanks again!

  29. If you chain a multiple of 3, 180 produced a better length for me, and use a stretchy yarn, such as Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn, it will be more accurate to the picture. Also the ch in row 2 should be 6 to account for the dc and ch 3 needed in a triangle stitch. Keep on learning crochet, you are doing a fabulous job!

  32. Thank you for the directions for this scarf, I'm going to do the same hook but thinner yarn. I'll send you pics and Facebook page when all done. I also will start with SC in first and last row for a finish look for me. But again thank you for directions.

  33. http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/#_a5y_p=1624722 I used this method for casting on the first row. It made a very nice edge .I also added a row of single crochet after the last pattern row. It gave the scarf a nice edge to match the cast on. I also found that the 138 stitches was too short even though I was using the yarn you recommended. I doubled the number of stitches and it worked well. Thank you for sharing your pattern.

  37. Hi,
    I didnt read all comments to know if its been posted but, if you chain 20, then take the hook out and put it through the very first chain made and, be sure to not twist, put hook back into end of the chain 20 then u have a untwusted loop on the hook, proceed to finish the amount of chains you need then slip stitch through the very first chain thats also on the hook. I hope i made sense cuz its so easy.
