DIAMOND LATTICE SCARF

Crochet Chronicles:

My sister, who rarely ask me for anything, was going through my FB page Crochet & More and fell in love with the Irish crochet scarf that I had done.. She wanted one of those…..but I had just finished hooking up 3 of them and was a little bored with doing the same thing. So I hooked her this scarf……and guess what?…. she loved it!!!!

This is a very gentle and innocent stitch pretending to be glamorous and sophisticated….and if you are wondering what I mean by that is……though the stitch looks complicated it is very simple to do and is addictive.

Materials used:

Pearl cottton #5 from Soft Feather 150 gms

Omega cotton Thread from Coats #10 – 100 gms.

Anchor cotton #20  – 20 gms for the tassels

Abbreviations used:

Slip stich – ss

Single Crochet – sc

Double Crochet – dc

Skip – sk

This is the chart that I worked from: This pattern is from the internet. I did do my own thing, in that, I hooked in a mesh stitch on either side of the scarf.

Written Pattern:

As mentioned before, I have used 3 kinds of thread…pearl #5, #10 and #20……it adds to the texture of the finished product…

I first worked with #5…which is a very light thread, building in the middle portion of the scarf…..then I worked #10 on both sides…#10 is not as soft as #5…so it weighs a little on both sides and then when you add the #20 as tassels…the whole project holds the length and shape…There is no need to starch this scarf.

Row1:  For this scarf I hooked in 16×6 = 96 + 8 +8 chains. then 3 chain up

Row 2: 3 dc in same chain as the 3ch up ;* skip 7 ch; 3dc in next  ch; 3ch; 3dc in same ch;* continue with ** until you reach the last  8 chs…. then skip 7 chs  and  4dc in  the last chain

Row 3:  3ch up, 3dc in the same chain; *5 chain, 3dc in  the 3ch loop created by the two 3dc cluster in the first row.; 3chain; 3dc in the same loop*. continue  ** until end of row.

Row 4:  3ch up , 3dc in same chain; *3chain; 1 sc is made gathering the 7 ch of the first and second rows: then 3ch; 3dc in the previous row’s loop 3ch 3dc* continue until end of row.

Now you have created your first diamond Lattice.

I made 34 rows of diamond Lattice in Pearl #5 then switched to #10 for 10 rows. Cut the yarn, and attached it to the other end of the scarf where I had first begun. So now you are hooking into #5 thread with #10 thread. What you get is a thicker and softer middle portion (the part that goes around your neck.)..and both the ends of the scarf are daintier becos you have hooked it with a #10. I also wanted the zigzag design as the border….I thought it looked more interesting.

I made 54 rows of Diamond Lattices.

You don’t have to use 3 different types of yarn ….you can make it with the same yarn all over…I just like to play around with textures…:-)

To give the  2 long sides of the scarf a lacy feel I crocheted a mesh stitch along the sides using  Omega from Coats #10 thread.

For the mesh stitch….dc 3ch  dc

Tassels:

I made the tassels with Anchor #20……just t wanted it to look more daintier and delicate…..Here is a very good link that shows you how to make tassels….
