The City of Crochet

Crocheting...an escape from everyday life in Europe as I face the perils of yarn shopping in a foreign country and dealing with all of the crazy looks I get for crocheting & knitting on the public transportation system.

The Sideways Lace Scarf Pattern

I’ve been putting off writing up this pattern and I am not really sure why. But I am now proud to bring to you my second pattern, the Sideways Lace Scarf.

This Broom-stick lace pattern is a very versatile pattern and extremely easy to modify for your desired yarn, size, available knitting needle size etc. I will first write up the basic pattern that I used, and then explain how it can be modified.

The Sideways Lace Scarf Pattern

Required Tools:

1.5 Skeins Bernat Satin Yarn
Size H Crochet Hook
US 19 (15 mm) Knitting Needle

Approx Size: 72" length - width as desired

With crochet hook:

Chain 253
Row1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain stitch (total 252 sc) do not turn

Row 2: Pull the loop that is on the hook onto your knitting needle, and working from left to right, * insert your hook into the back-loop of the next SC, yarn over, draw yarn through the loop and, being careful not to twist, place it on the knitting needle * repeat from * to end (252 loops on the needle)

Row 3: Without turning, insert crochet hook under the first 3 loops, yo & pull through the loops, pull loops off of needle, Ch 1, 3 sc into top of the 3 yarn loops * in next 3 loops on the needle, 3sc in each across * (252 sc with 84 broomstick motifs)

Repeat Rows 2 & 3 until you have reached desired width

Last Row: Turn, Sc in each st across and finish off

Optional: A fringe can be added to the ends if desired


MODIFICATIONS:

Any type of yarn can be used, with the appropriate sized crochet hook for that yarn....with bulkier yarn I would decrease the chain, thinner yarn increase the chain so that you have the desired length in your chain.

A longer scarf needed? Increase your chain by groups of 3 (a group of 7 (21 ch) adds another 5 inches in length when using a H hook & worsted weight yarn)
A shorter scarf needed? Decrease your chain by groups of 3

Only have a Size 35 knitting needle:? I would suggest doing groups of 4 then, so make your starting chain 253, and increase or decrease by 4 to reach the desired length

Only have a Size 50 knitting needle? I would suggest using this with a group of 5, so increase your starting chain to 256, and increase or decrease by 5 to reach the desired length

Do not be scared to play around with needle sizes to achieve the desired Broomstick motif size

    So sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well. I sure hope that you are feeling better as I'm writing this.

    Beautiful projects you have been working on. I love the colors in the round afghan. This scarf is really pretty, and I think it is doable. Thanks for the pattern!

    Hey, so glad to see some items made using this stitch...My mom taught me how when I was a teenager. And I haven't seen too many sites featuring this. Keep up the good work.

    I'm new to reading crochet patterns. I don't understand the directions for row 3:
    "3 sc into top of the 3 yarn loops * in next 3 loops on the needle, 3sc in each across"
    Can anyone explain this or refer me to a site preferably with illustrations? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Why did you post a knitting pattern on a crochet site?

    To anonymous on 1/2/12 - this isn't a KNITTING pattern. Broomstick lace is crochet - the large knitting needle is used to hold the loop stitches. A size Q, N, or P crochet hook would also work.

    Please forgive me, I'm new at this. How do you add the fringe? It looks like it's worked in to the pattern, not just tied on. Please help. Thank you.

    I';m new to this and I would like to do this scarf but find it impossible to read the instruction with the dark fushia background. I do not understand why you would use that or any color for a background when it is so difficult to read on the computer. I for one am very disappointed.

    I'd like a copy of the Sideways Lace Scarf in black and white printing. This hard to read. It's a beautiful scarf, but my eyes are not the greatest.

    For people saying that it is hard to read, copy the pattern into MS Word and it's a lot easier to read.
