I have an Easy Lacy Crochet Scarf pattern for you today! This free pattern is beginner friendly, and a relaxing crochet project to make.

An easy open lace pattern is used to create this delicate crochet scarf and includes a crochet chart.

It will be a great addition to your wardrobe. Perfect for draping as a lacy summer scarf, or winding around your neck as a statement piece. 

I choose to make my scarf extra long (I am tall) but you can choose to make your version the length that works for you.

Yarn for a Crochet Lace Scarf

I fell for the beautiful Indigo and petrol blue shades in this lace-weight yarn, and knew that a crochet lacy scarf was the perfect project for it. I choose to use a 3.5mm crochet hook to keep the pattern open and loose, but you may prefer to use a 3.00mm hook – make a swatch and see what works best for your tension.

You can use fingering-weight yarn if you prefer – lace-weight yarn can seem intimidating at first but don’t be afraid to try it as it makes the most lovely crochet fabric! 

The pattern is easily adaptable to any lightweight yarn and you can find some tips in the Notes section.

Lace crochet patterns can also be made using a heavier weight yarn so you could try a shorter version in a worsted weight or DK weight as well.

What Stitches are Used in this Lacy Scarf

This lacy crochet scarf pattern uses basic crochet stitches –  chain stitch, single crochet, and double crochet. The chain stitch creates open spaces and an airy texture. 

The single crochet stitch adds structure while maintaining lightness, and the double crochet stitch adds height to the intricate lace motifs. 

By combining these stitches, you will create an elegant and intricate pattern that showcase the beauty of lace in your scarf design!

  1. I made this for my mom as a birthday present. I ended up using a 2mm hook though with a lace weight baby silkpaca yarn, since I wanted it to be slightly tighter with more defined stitches but still airy. I also adapted it to be an infinity scarf by ending on row 9 and seaming it to the beginning, keeping an even number of lace blocks amongst the solid bands. The pattern was very easy to follow and turned out beautifully!

  2. To be sure before I begin, this pattern is worked across the 12 inch short end. Not the length. Is this correct? It may seem like a rather stupid question but I had a stroke awhile back and my short term memory doesn’t always catch on fast. Thanks so much. Beautiful work.

    1. Not a silly question at all! That is correct, you will work across the width of the scarf. Wishing you well x

  3. Quick question. The multiple is 6 st+3, but the stitch count per row is 62. I’m guessing you mean multiples of 6 + 2?

    Thanks for your help!

    1. Hi! The multiple is actually 6 sts + 5 for foundation row (I have edited the post). Thanks for pointing that out!

  4. Beautiful! I’m pretty new to crocheting and wondering how difficult it would be to alter to a vest (maybe just tacked sides for arm holes). Thanks for any advice.

  5. I’d love to make this scarf in the same colorway.
    I don’t see that yarn when I go to Bilum Hand dyed Yarns – Pukpuk
    Could you please advise? Thank you!

    1. Hi! I purchased the yarn at a yarn show so it is possible it is unavailable now. I suggest you look at Hobbii yarns. They sell a lot of gradient yarns and may have a similiar colorway:)
