Row 1: Dc in 6th ch from hook (counts as dc, ch 1, dc), ch 1, skip next ch, dc in next ch, *skip next 3 ch, Shell (see special stitches) in next ch, skip next 3 ch, (dc in next ch, ch 1, skip next ch) twice, dc in next ch; rep from * across, ending with dc in last ch, turn. (3 Shells, 12 dc)

Row 2: Ch 4 (counts as 1dc, ch 1 here and throughout), dc in next dc, ch 1, dc in next dc, *ch 3, skip next 3 dc, (sc, ch 3, sc) in ch-2 sp of next Shell, ch 3, skip next 3 dc, (dc in next dc, ch 1, skip next ch-1 sp) twice, dc in next dc; rep from * across, ending with dc in 2nd ch of beg ch-6, turn. (12 dc, 6 sc)

You will now just repeat rows 2 & 3 until you reach the length you want, or run out of yarn. But make sure you leave a few metre’s for a fringe!

You will now make one final row to straighten edge.

Final Row: Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), dc in next dc, ch 1, dc in next dc, *ch 3, skip next 3 sts of Shell, sc in ch-2 sp of Shell, ch 3, skip next 3 dc, (dc in next dc, ch 1) twice, dc in next dc; rep from * across, ending with dc in 2nd ch of beg ch-4, turn. (12 dc, 3 sc)

Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Wet block gently and pin out to desired size, leave until completely dry.

I hope you enjoy this one skein crochet scarf pattern and make your own lacy and delicate scarf!

  1. Hello Carmen! Another daughter saw this scarf and thought it would make a lovely wrap. And I agree!
    What is the stitch repeat to add to the width?
    Your designs are lovely and I am SO glad I found your web site.
    With thanks,

    1. Thank you! I really appreciate that. I would just make a chain the length you require (and some extra) and finish the pattern repeat when you reach the width you need. You can then unpick any excess chains afterwards!

  2. Hi there! I started this beautiful scarf and have a question. In row 3, the pattern says to do a shell in the ch-2 space, but I believe it means in the SC of the previous row. Otherwise you would be skipping over the shell and creating a shell in the ch-2 space after the shell, which would cause the shells to shift over as opposed to stacking on top of each other….can you help?

    1. Correctuon: I realize there is a ch3 space after the shell (not a ch1, lol) , but the shell should be going into the SC of the previous row, I think….🤔

      1. Hi Tina! You work the shell into the ch-3 space between the sc’s [sc, ch 3, sc] I hope that makes sense! Email me or DM me on Instagram if you are stuck, always happy to help:)
