Here is my July "Pattern a Month"!
This scarf is very easy and quick to finish, which makes it a great last minute gift. The scarf in the photographs is made using a lovely tweed wool, but this patterns works just as well with a cotton yarn for a Spring or Summer scarf :-)
The gauge/tension isn't particularly important for this project, but to give you an idea, the scarf in the photographs is made using 288m (315yds) of 8ply/DK yarn using a 4.5mm hook and measures 16cm (6.25") wide and 134cm (53") long.
If you want to use a different weight yarn and you want to make your scarf wider or thinner it's easy :-) The stitch pattern can be made on any number of stitches that are divisible by 7 plus 4 :-)

DENTELLE CROCHET SCARF
MATERIALS: 8 ply or DK yarn, 4.5mm hook.
ABBREVIATIONS: ch = chain
tr = treble (U.S. dc = double crochet)
sp = space
Please Note: British/Australian crochet terms are used throughout this pattern, please see Abbreviations for U.S. crochet terms conversion for this pattern :-)
Row 1: 1 tr in 4th ch from hook (counts as 2 tr). *Miss next 2 ch. (3 tr. Ch 1. 3 tr) in next ch. Miss next 2 ch. 1 tr in each of next 2 ch. Repeat from * to end. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as 1 tr). 1 tr in next tr. *(3 tr. Ch 1. 3 tr) in next ch-1 sp.(miss next 3 tr of shell from previous row) 1 tr in each of next 2 tr. Rep from * to end. Turn.
Repeat Row 2 until scarf measures half the desired length, break yarn & fasten off. Rejoin yarn at the beginning chain (foundation chain) and complete Row 1 once, then repeat Row 2 until this side of the scarf is the same length as the first side of the scarf. Fasten off & weave in ends.
PLEASE NOTE: When you are starting the second side of your scarf the foundation chain may seem a little distorted, however you are "mirroring" exactly what has occurred in Row 1 of the first side of your scarf. So, if a ch has a tr in it from the first row, you will make a tr in the base of this ch, if the ch was skipped in the first row, you will now skip it, if a ch has a "shell" (3tr, 1ch, 3tr) in it from the first row, then you will now make a shell in the base of that ch, & so on :-)
