Lacey Shells Scarf Pattern

Here's a pattern I just wrote up for one of the Christmas gifts I made the other day. Use it as you will but please if anyone asks for the pattern, send them back here! :)

Lacey Shells Scarf

   K Hook
   H Hook
   Lion Brand Pound of Love

   Shell - 2dc, ch 1, 2dc in same st
   Picot - 1sc, ch 3, 1sc in same st

Using K hook:
Row 1 - Ch 29, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 2 (28 sc)

Row 2 - dc in same st as ch, sk next 2 sc, shell in next st, sk next 4 sts, *shell in next st, repeat from * until you get to the last 4 sts, sk 2 sc, dc in last 2 sts, ch 2 (5 shells, 5 ch 1 spaces)

Row 3 - dc in same st and in next st, sk next 2 dc and shell in ch 1 space and in each ch 1 space across, dc in last 2 dc, ch 2 (5 shells, 5 ch 1 spaces)

Row 4 - 103 - repeat row 3 throughout. When you finish row 103, finish off.

Switching to H hook:

Join yarn in corner of starting ch, working in ends of dcs and chs, sc along the edge, sc in each dc from row 103, then sc along the other edge again working in ends of dcs and chs. When you reach the beginning ch, join yarn  with a sl st to first sc. Ch 1.

Sc in same st as join and in next st, *picot in next st, sc in next 2 sts. repeat from * all the way around the scarf. Join with a sl st to ch 1. Finish off!

I hope you enjoy making this pattern! I love the way the scarf turned out and it worked up super quick! So a good, fast project! Enjoy!


  1. Liz,
    I love the shell stitch and have made several scarves with it.
    It is the boarder that makes this so light and feminine. I
    will use this with a beautiful silk yarn I have.
    Thank you for combining two of my favorite stitches into
    a simple,lovely pattern.

    Thank you somuch

  7. I think Row 2 directions could use a bit of clarification. I figured it out since you put the number of each stitches in () at the end. Thanks so much for doing that btw. For a beginner like me, having the number of of each stitch in a row spelled out helps me to know if I've done the row correctly or figure out directions that might not have been clear to me.
    Here's how I'd simplify Row 2 instructions. "- dc in same st as ch, sk next 2 sc, *shell in next st, sk next 4 sts,* Repeat from ** until you get to the last 4 sts, sk 2 sc, dc in last 2 sts, ch 2 (5 shells, 5 ch 1 spaces)

    Thank you for the free pattern. It is so simple and classically feminine. I was draw to it because it reminded me of the shaws worn by my great-grandmother and grandmother.

    Are we allowed to sell items made from this pattern?

    Take care, Heather


    1. Sk means skip.

      "sk next 2 sc" means skip 2 single crochets.
      (So, you'd put your next stitch in the 3rd stitch).
