Royalty Scarf

I have always loved crochet lace. The royalty scarf is a spin on classic pineapple lace. It uses shell stitches and large chain spaces to create a beautiful lacy effect!

Other Lacy Patterns:

Now, let’s talk yarn. Royalty is made out of lace weight yarn—but don’t let that scare you off! For a long time I didn’t use lace weight because I associated it with the icky cotton and tiny hooks used for doilies. That is definitely not what I used for this scarf.

For this scarf, I selected Knit Picks Gloss Lace. If you’ve never used lace weight made out of wool, you’re in for a treat! This is an absolutely gorgeous yarn!

It is not that expensive, and plus it is soft and full of drape. Also, don’t worry, this pattern does not call for one of those tiny hooks. I hate it when you can’t even see the hook you’re using! This scarf uses an F/3.75mm hook, which actually allows the lace weight yarn to have a lovely drape.

Even better, you can make this scarf in only one hank of Gloss Lace! Despite the lace yarn, it works up pretty fast.

As far as the stitch pattern goes: please, do not worry. It uses only basic stitches—chains, single crochet, double crochet, shells. Easy peasy, right?
