Make a scarf fit for royalty! This lacy little number makes use of fans spaced with varied sizes of picots, making the scarf look like it is edged with crowns.

Using worsted weight yarn makes this project go fast, making for generous length and using up only approximately 330 yards or 300 meters.

Skill Level: crochet skill level easy

Finished Size: 88″ long x 6″ wide

Materials:
330 Yards of Medium Weight Yarn
Crochet Hook J (6.00 mm)
crochet yarn size 4


Gauge: Not important

Notes: When making the foundation stitches, it is recommended to crochet into the back ridge of the chain to make the project look balanced, and make it easier to work stitches in. Also included near the end of the post is a step-by-step tutorial for the beginning of round 1. The photos are for both right-handed and left handed crocheters; mousing over the images shows the left-handed tutorial photos.

    Love this little scarf–could you also make a chart for it? That would make it go much faster for me

    • Claire says:

      Hi Donna, I would simply LOVE to be able to chart patterns (unfortunately I could not). Maybe you can start with the written pattern, and then look at the closeup photo for the lacy edge.

  2. Judy Cimafranca says:

    Hi claire, simple but elegant, did you crochet this in the Philippines? What specific brand of yarn did you use? And what hook did you use? I can see the color of the hook is deep green? or? Cause i know here in Pinas, only silver and gold hook is available. Thank you.

    • Claire says:

      Hi Judy! I used the ever-abundant (here in the PH) Red Heart acrylic yarn. I got the hook at Dreams Yarn Shoppe–they have imported stuff there, like other specialty craft stores. The hooks you have are probably the ones in Japanese sizes (7/0, 8/0). The hook I used is a J Susan Boye hook, part of a set I got. Thanks for liking the scarf. :)

  3. I’d be happy to do a chart for you, if you’d like. Just email me. I’m fixing to grab some yarn and work this up. I didn’t notice if you have any particular copyright (as far as creating from your pattern and selling the finished product online).

    My sister owns a yarn store in a little town. She’d love to keep it open, but if we can’t make another $400.00 this month, she’ll have to close. I’m desperate to help her and have been creating my own patterns for things that can be made fast but yet are nice enough that others will want to purchase them.

    May I have your permission to make some of these to sell for my sister’s store?

    Great pattern! Very pretty and well-done. I´ll be making one of these. :)

  5. Michelle says:

    Wow! That’s a pretty little scarf. Looking forward to making it – thanks!

  6. kaytea says:

    would it be plausible to use a no-chain foundation? because i would love to make it like that:>

  7. Beth says:

    Lovely! I have some vintage Crepe Velaine (Rayon & Wool blend) in yellow that will looks fabulous with this pattern!

  8. Pat says:

    This is a wonderful pattern. So many times I have thought I would let you know how very much I enjoy your patterns. And this time I am doing so. I also look forward to your emails. You are so talented and I want to thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  9. [...] the necklace look familiar? I used the fans in the Royal Scarf Crochet Pattern to achieve the lacy yet solid look for this [...]

    Hi Cami,

    I want to thank you so very much for sharing your talent! I am getting pretty good at creating some of my own patterns too but mostly for hats, scarves, wristlets and some cuffs. I do know how to read a chart but I don’t think I want to make one although with all the pics you include in your patterns it sure makes it easy to do if you are a beginner. God bless your business! I am disabled and this busness helps me a tiny bit to be able to live a better life and be able to buy my grandchildren and 2 daughters some things.

    Sincerely,

    Joni :-)

  11. I really appreciate the pattern. I design my own and I learned long ago that there IS a thing called “Simple Elegance” and this Royal Scarf is one of them.

    I’ve worked up two. One has to be in just about he same shade as your yellow scarf and the second one, I added an extra 12 stitches to make it a litlte longer. Each repeat uses 12 states for those of you who want to make the scarf longer. I’ve also made one in a peach and it’s absolutely beautfiul.

    Thanks for sharing.

  12. Alicia L. says:

    Could you please tell me how many additional chain stitches you would add in order to make the scarf longer?

    *Beautiful scarf, I love it. :)

    Thank you!

  13. Ericka says:

    Love this pattern, by have issues withthe beginning of the 2nd row. If there are 2 ch 5 spaces at the end of the piece after doing row

  14. Ericka says:

    …then how are the ends of the piece worked for round 2? Could you please clarify?

    • Claire says:

      Hello Ericka, you should have 114 ch-5 loops at the end of round 1. At the beginning of round 2, we make 2 sl sts in the first loop we made in round 1, just to get to the center of that loop–and then make an sc. I hope I was able to help; please let me know if you have any more problems.

  15. I’ve made this pattern. It’s a way that will prevent the scarf from curling so much.

    I only have one suggestion. I believe that after completing the first row, we should ch 3 (or ch 2 in my case) and turn. After completing the second row, we should also join, ch 3 and turnv(which is now being workrf on the RS) .

    By working the 2nd row on the WS it will allow the 3rd row (the most important row IMHO) to lay flat.

  16. Ericka says:

    What if we would like the pattern shorter? I am using this pattern to make a lace choker, but the foundation chain of 219 is too long…..

  17. Each repeat consists of 12 stitches. So, all you need to do is to decide how much shorter you’d like it, count the stitches and round it off to the nearest multiple of 12 and that’s how many less stitches you will ch in the beginning.

  18. Claire, I hope you don’t think that I’m trying to chop your pattern to pieces. That’s not my intent at all. I think you’ve designed an absolutely gorgeous pattern. I, also, love to design patterns and am working on several pattern books at once (knitting, crochet and tatting). But, I do love to see how I can use patterns I love and turn them into other things, e.i., scarf pattern to a dishcloth (or in the reverse).

    You’re welcome to add my possibility of lengthening/shortening your pattern to what you already have. I simply did the math. I didn’t change your pattern; other than reversing the 2nd row and then returning the 3rd row to the RS. Maybe we can colaborate on some patterns one day.

  19. Nikki says:

    hy i need help with the pattern can someone help me??

  20. Claudia says:

    I just finished this pattern using the silver Vanna’s Glamour yarn and it is beautiful! Thanks for the wonderful pattern!

  21. Sarah Dee says:

  22. :) says:

    LOVE this! I did one in dark teal. This is going to make a great Christmas present!!!

  23. Sheikha says:

    Thanks a lot..you’re pattern is beautiful and I did it with turquoise and brown. :)

  24. Janice in Alaska says:

    I’ve just finished round 2., and I’m confused :) Round 3 says to Sl st into next 2 ch of loop. The nearest loop is on the other side of the 12 dc, ie the other side of the scarf. Now am I to sl st 12 times to get to the “2 ch of loop” ???

    Help !!!!

    • Hello Janice, I’m sorry it wasn’t made clearer in the pattern, but you have to make the 2 sl st in the last loop you made for round 2. Please note that this doesn’t mean you should turn your work: complete the rest of the row by working in the next fan with 12 dc. Hope that explains it!
