Update: The story of this scarf is the topic of issue #31 of my Crochet Inspirations Newsletter. Antoinette has inspired two newer sister-scarves: Cantina and Emdash. (See all DesigningVashti filet patterns in one place.)

Antoinette is designed for instant gratification with one skein of a sparkly special-occasion fashion yarn. Its familiar filet stitch pattern uses taller stitches that usual for a speedy and elongated crochet lace.

New to tall stitches or wish yours were less loopy looking? This pattern includes a link to tips for learning how to make nice-looking “triple trebles” (abbreviated trtr, or quadtr in the UK).

A last-minute gift of Antoinette would take about two hours to crochet. It works with a variety of yarn amounts and textures because it’s easy to adapt the pattern to the amount of yarn you have on hand. View more patterns for last minute gifts here, and use-any-yarn patterns here.)

Pattern is short and easy to memorize. (It looks long due to in-depth yarn advice, customizing guidelines, and a stitch diagram.)

Skill Level: Easy/Intermediate. I’ve kept the pattern abbreviations to a minimum.

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • How to create a versatile and special lace scarf with traditional crochet
  • How to crochet good-looking Triple Treble Stitches {UK: Quadruple Treble}
  • How to evaluate novelty yarns for this scarf.

Matching the exact gauge listed in this pattern is not very important for this project. This is because I designed this scarf to be a fun way to use yarn from your stash. Pattern includes “lab notes” and extra images from my experiments with a range of novelty yarns.

If you’re new to crocheting novelty yarns, stick with the smoothest-textured ones. After more experience, try the lumpy-bumpy types.

Look for yarns that contain as much rayon (a.k.a. viscose, bamboo, soy, milk) as possible. Some silk, nylon, and suri alpaca yarns might also drape enough.
