Filet Crochet Scarf Pattern

Filet crochet is the art of making pictures and designs while crocheting. The filet crochet scarf pattern is a simple design that works up quickly. I used size 3 crochet thread, but you can use any size doily thread, or even regular yarn for a different effect. Smaller yarns will naturally make a much narrower scarf – possibly something you’d like to use as a belt even, while heavier yarns will create the opposite effect.

You Will Need
1 skein size 3, crochet thread
Size D crochet hook
Note:  Using different size thread and hook size will change yarn requirements for finished project.
Measurements for scarf in photo:  42 inches long, 4 ½ inches wide


Foundation Row:  Chain 30 (+3, which counts as 1st double crochet); double crochet in the 4th chain from hook and in each chain across, turn
Step 1:  Chain 3 (1st dc in row) + 5, *skip next 5 dc, dc in next dc
{Repeat from * across row, ending with 1 dc in top of turning chain, turn}
Step 2:  Chain 3 (1st 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 (1st 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
