Crochet Lacy Scarf Pattern, Alana Lacy Scarf

Share the Love!

Designing crochet lacy scarf patterns is how I satisfy my crojo in spring and summer. Once the summer sets in I am always thinking of crochet projects that are wearable on sunny days and a lacy scarf seems like the perfect fit.



You can hardly see me without my scarf and I think it is the perfect accessory to dress up any plain outfit. looking for a mother’s day gift? Why not whip one of these real quick?

 

 

 

 

 

It is a fast-growing crochet pattern with all the big gaps and the repetitive pattern would put you at ease instantly.  I altered the regular shell stitch to create this airy and light fabric.

 

 

I tried them in acrylic and a blend of cotton, the cotton one came out gorgeous with more stitch definition as you can see in the purple scarf. The red one I whipped up with some leftover baby acrylic yarn and still looks beautiful and light.

Stitch Explanation

Triple crochet (tr): It is a taller than a double crochet and worked as follows:
Wrap the yarn around the hook 2 times, insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, *(yarn over and pull through 2 loops) 3 times.——A triple crochet made.

Shells:I have used 2 types of shells in this pattern. Though they are very similar, mixing them up adds more dimension to the pattern.

Lacy shell: (tr, ch 1, tr, ch 1, tr) all worked into the same st.

Solid Shell: ( tr, ch 1, 3 tr ) all worked into the same st.

                                                                        Pattern

The scarf is worked lengthwise and you start with a very long chain. I found that the shells looked better worked this way :). Please see stitch explanation above for lacy and solid shell.

With G hook Chain 180 + 3 for turning chain. If you chain tightly, use the next size hook for your foundation chain.

Row 1: 1 hdc in 3rd chain from hook, * skip 2 ch, 1 lacy shell in next st, skip 2 ch, 1 hdc in next ch, * repeat from * to * till end. ———–30 shells



Note: In the next round the beginning Ch 5 counts as the first (tr + ch 1 ) of a shell and the idea is to work a shell in the dip between each of the two shells of the previous round alternating with a hdc in the peak of each shell. See pic above.

Row 2 : ch 5 , 1 tr in first st, sk 2 st, 1 hdc in next st ( the middle tr at the peak of a shell), sk 2 st, *(1 lacy shell into the dip between next two shells, sk 2 st, 1 hdc in to next st on the peak of a shell, sk 2 st ) *, repeat from * to * ending with a (tr, ch 1, tr) in the last st.

Row 3 : Ch 2, 1 hdc in first st, sk 2 st, 1 solid shell in next st at the dip between 2 shells, sk 2 st, 1 hdc in next st at the peak of a shell*, repeat from *-* working last hdc into the top of beginning chain 4.

Row 4: Repeat Row 2

Row 5: Ch 2, 1 hdc in first st, sk 2 st, 1 lacy shell in next st at the dip between 2 shells, sk 2 st, 1 hdc in next st at the peak of a shell*, repeat from *-* working last hdc into the top of beginning chain 4.

Row 6: ch 5 , 1 tr in first st, sk 2 st, 1 hdc in next st ( the middle tr at the peak of of a shell), sk 2 st, *(1 solid shell in to the dip between next two shells, sk 2 st, 1 hdc in to next st on the peak of a shell, sk 2 st ) *, repeat from * to * ending with a (tr, ch 1, tr) in the last st.

Row 7: Repeat Row 5

Row 8: Repeat Row 2

If you want to add to the width of your scarf, repeat rows 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 .

Tassels And Finishing
For tassels, cut 4 strands of 8 inches length. Fold at the middle of the strands and pull through the scarf to get a loop, yarn over grabbing all the strands and pull through the loop. Tighten the knot and trim as needed. I attached 5 tassels on each side. Weave in the ends.

When you refer to the chain 3 turning chain, are you doing a chain 3 at the end of each row?

Every alternate row starts with a turning chain of ch 5 which counts as a tr and a ch 1.

I like this pattern, nice pretty, light scarf. Iā€™m curious, though - the above instructions say the solid shell is 1TC, a chain, and then 3 TC - should that be 3 TC on both sides of the chain? Thank you!

Hi Melissa, I can understand why you are confused. Most shells have 3 tr on either side but I altered the shell pattern to suit my design. So no worries, just follow the solid shell pattern given and it will turn out great :).

I made the exact scarf from your Alana Scarf from Lion Brand. I liked the pattern so much that I made it into a King Size Blanket
