Block & Windows Scarf pattern

I call this one Blocks & Windows because of the filled blocks and open windows in the pattern. This is filet crochet and is easy to do. It also works up fast!

The pictured scarf was crocheted with lace weight yarn and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook. It takes about 250 yards of lace weight yarn for a scarf that is 62" x 7" (blocked size). It works up well in fingering weight too.

Begin with one block and increase by steps. Work even in pattern before decreasing back down to one block at the other end.

Learn how to add stitches at both ends of the same row. (I had to learn how to do this for this scarf even though I've been crocheting for many years! LOL!) A crochet symbol chart of the pattern is included to help you understand how the design works or if you have trouble visualizing the written instructions. (Writing crochet instructions is more challenging than knitted ones are! I have some great testers who help me insure that the instructions are clear and accurate.)

Make a stole from of this design by adding more steps to make it wider. You'll need about 750-800 yards of laceweight to do this.

The pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store.
