    This is a beautiful scarf but as a new crocheter I have a small question regarding the first row of the pattern. After the last double crochet before repeating at the *, am I to skip any stitches? It looks a bit off from my perspective. How many 5 double-crochet fans are there total across?

    Thanks!

    Hi Bethany,

    Thanks for your comment. In the first row you just make 1 dc into the 6th chain from the hook (this counts as 1 dc, 1 chain and then the dc you’ve just made) then you miss 2 chains and make the 5 dc shell in the next chain (so the 3rd chain from the dc you’ve just made. Does that make sense?

    If you are doing the wider scarf (chain 62) there will be 7 repeats.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any problems and I’ll try to help.

    Thanks,
    Rebecca

    Hi, I have a question to expand on Bethany’s question. The image shows one repeat, but I’m confused how they connect. I have done several of the repeats already and the directions say to do the 5 dc shell in the next chain after the last dc in the set. Should there be a skipped chain or two in between? It looks a bit asymmetrical!

    Thanks!

    Hi Caitlin,

    Yes, you should miss 2 chains after the last dc – sorry this isn’t very clear from the written directions – I’ll amend them to make it clearer.

    Thanks for pointing it out – and apologies for the confusion!

    This looks like a very wonderful scarf… I wonder how it could be changed to work for worsted weight yarn as well? Any suggestions? Thanks so much for posting it!

      Hi there…I Loved this pattern and wanted to make one in black DK wool…it didnt looks as great as I had hoped in black. I also love chunky scarves and decided to crochet it with 2 strands DK black wool together, a size 9 mm hook and instead of doing either 62 or 54 sts I took it down to 30sts – 3 repeated shells across – and shortened the number of rows somewhat. I also added tassles, all this used 3 100gm balls of DK wool. I will post a photo on my blog and link it to this page as soon as possible.

    Hi T,

    Sorry for not replying sooner – I’ve been a bit distracted by the arrival of my spinning wheel! Anyhow, as to your question – yes, I think the pattern would work fine in worsted weight – just use a hook size appropriate for your yarn and do fewer pattern repeats… perhaps just start off with 54 chains or even 46 (I think) – you might find it helpful to make a swatch of one pattern repeat to give you an idea of how wide the scarf will be first.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for posting this pattern, the scarf is beautiful! Began last night with a cashmere/merino blend, so soft. I can’t wait until it’s finished.

    I’ve made several scarves over the years but they always come out looking homemade. This scarf looks professional. I’m making a few as Christmas gifts :) Thank you for the pattern; I feel like I discovered a gem!

    I love my home-made purple scarf and the person who made it for me! -makes it even lovelier! but yes, this is a beautiful one and I can imagine it in a finer yarn that would make it dressier…

    I’m getting to the end of the first half of the scarf but I’m unsure how to connect the second half. I understand that I need to attach to the foundation chain but how do I connect the rest of the scarf? At each end? Any advice is welcome! Thanks!

    What a beautiful scarf!!! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern!
    I believe this is one I will have to keep for myself.

    This looks like a nice pattern for a crocheted scarf. I’ve had a difficult time finding a really nice pattern. Thank you for sharing it. I linked to your site on my facebook page.

    …Where are my crochet-hooks…ahhh, deep down under my knitting-needles…
    I need scarfs, everytime in autumn and winter, and no chrochet-scarf… It´s time to change this!
    Thanks for the pattern.

    The scarf in the picture looks lovely, and I’d like to try the pattern, but I’d like to give it a go with finger weight yarn that is an alpaca and silk blend. Do you think that the alpaca blend would work for your pattern? If so, what size hook would you recommend?

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    I just wanted to say thanks for this beautiful pattern. I made one for my sister-in-law for Christmas and I was so pleased with how it turned out. It is a lovely delicate design, simple to learn what you’re doing without keeping referring to the pattern. Happy New Year!

      Your welcome. I’m glad it turned out well for you.

    Beautiful scarf! I am about halfway through with mine and am unsure how the second half is supposed to look. I see it says fasten it off and make the second half the same as the first, but how do they connect?

  28. February 7, 2011 9:19 am

    This is such a beautiful scarf! Thanks so much for sharing the pattern.

    I started making it, but got too lazy to finish, so turned it into a bag – http://chingypingy.blogspot.com/2011/02/project-busting-1.html

    I’m new to reading patterns, so I’m a bit confused about what it means in the second row. It says “Ch 4 (counts as 1 tr plus 1 ch “. Can you explain this for me please. Thank you! Tiffany

    thanx a lot for this pattern …

  31. December 6, 2011 12:10 am

    Thank you so much for uput pattern. If I were to use a 5mm hook would there be a problem?

  32. December 12, 2011 4:36 am

    Thanks so much for this pattern! A friend passed it on to me as an option for my first crochet project ever. So far I’m halfway through the scarf and I’m really enjoying myself. Once I’m done I’m going to give wetblocking a go as it seems to give the scarf a nice finish (I used a dove gray 5ply cotton/acyrlic blend). Thanks for providing instruction and inspiration! It’s been really good to learn from you.

  33. April 19, 2012 3:19 pm

    Woo hoo! I feel elated. I have never been able to follow a chart for a lacy pattern before but this one is so simple but looks great. I am really pleased with it. Thank you, thank you!

  34. July 21, 2012 6:51 pm

    Thank you for such a pretty pattern! I made it for my friend who went aboard to study. I had a very fun time crocheting this while watching my dramas and movies. Hehe. I have some pictures of the finished product here: http://monkeyingonthemoon.blogspot.sg/2012/07/freyas-scarf-done.html

    I have started over on this scarf 3 times and I still don’t get 7 shells. I get 6 shells. So I just continued anyway and the next rows worked and my shells match up. What did I do wrong?

    what does sp mean in Rnd 2?

    • December 2, 2012 9:41 am

      Holly – sp means space – so ch sp = chain space. You work into the chain space rather than the chain. Hope that helps.
