Filet Crochet Scarf Pattern

by M. J. Joachim
Updated 4/20/16




Filet crochet is the art of making pictures and designs in your crocheted fabric. The scarf pattern pictured is a simple design that works up quickly. I used size 3 crochet thread, but you can use any size doily thread, or even yarn, for a different effect.

Smaller threads and yarns will create a more lacy effect, while bulkier yarns will have the opposite effect.

You Will Need

1 Skein size 3 crochet thread
Size D crochet hook

Note: Using different materials will require adjustments to amount of thread you need and size hook you use.

Measurements for scarf in photo are 42" long x 4.50" wide

Foundation Row: Chain 30 + 3 more chain stitches (counts as 1st dc); dc in 4th chain from hook and in each chain across, turn

Step 1: Chain 3 (first dc in row) + 5; *skip next 5 dc, make 1 dc in next dc; repeat from * across row, ending with 1 dc in top of turning chain, turn

Step 2: Chain 3 (first dc in row) + 5; dc in next dc, chain 5, dc in next dc; make 5 dc in next chain 5 space; dc in next dc, chain 5, dc in next dc; chain 5, dc in 6th chain from hook, turn

Step 3: Chain 3 (first dc in row) + 5; dc in next dc; [make 5 dc in chain 5 space, dc in next 7 dc, make 5 dc in next chain 5 space]; dc in next dc, chain 5, dc in 6th chain from hook, turn

Step 4: Chain 3 (first dc in row) + 5; dc in next dc; chain 5, skip next 5 dc; dc in next 7 dc, chain 5; skip next 5 dc, dc in next dc; chain 5, dc in 6th chain from hook, turn
