|The filet crochet scarf has 15 cm fringe at each end.|
A separate circular band can be used as a fastening.
I am so excited to have finished the red lacy scarf that I took with me to crochet in hospital.
What do you think?
|Full length of scarf with 15 pattern repeats and fringe untrimmed:|
120 cm (47") long and 18 cm (7") wide including fringe.
The pattern is "Diamond-Strike Banded Scarf" by Kristen Stolzfus and was published in Crochet One-Skein Wonders: 101 Projects from Crocheters Around the World.
|Scarf-in-progress after 10 pattern repeats with book in the background.|
I lengthened the scarf by adding three extra pattern repeats to make 15 rows of filet spiderweb motifs instead of 12 rows. Now it is such a versatile scarf because the extra length gives options either to use the band to link it together or to wear the scarf without a band in a traditional way.
This filet crochet scarf has such an easy pattern: portable, easily memorised, no worries about sizing and quick to finish.
I love it so much, I want to make another!
This longer version of the scarf weighs 48 grams. I have 47 grams left on the skein.
That should be enough to make a second scarf–the original short version.
