With yarn and large tapestry needle, whipstitch squares together holding right sides together, stitching thru the back bars of each stitch, to form a long strip.

Edging

Sk 3 sc, 10 trc in nxt sc, sk 2 sc, sc in nxt sc.] Repeat from [to], join with sl st, fasten off. There will be a total of 64 fans, 3 on each end and 29 along each side.

Fringe

Cut 60 pieces of yarn 16″ long.
Using 10 strands for each fringe, attach between the 5th & 6th trc on each fan.
(Fold lengths of yarn in half to forma loop, pull loop thru between stitches, pull yarn ends thru this loop. Tug on them a bit to secure.) Do this on both ends for a total of 6 fringe. Trim to even up fringe if neccesary.

Weave in any leftover yarn ends and block if needed.

I absolutely love it. It is stunning. I am going to have a go at it. Not too sure if I can do it any justice but I will try.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Kindest regards

Do you think it would be possible to do this 2 or 3 motifs wide for a shawl?

Sorry….also meant to add how stunning it is.

A beautiful scarf. I would like to try some more crochet (just finished a scarf in Queen Annes lace and I love it) to give my arm a rest from so much knitting- Christmas scarves and hats for 14 people! Carol

This is lovely. Thank you for sharing the pattern with all of us.

Thanks for sharing this pattern. It is absolutely beautiful!

Love the scarf. I have tried this pattern twice now and have not have success with it. Am I reading the pattern wrong.
9 dc +ch3 spaces in first round?

CookD i think it’s more like 12dc + ch3 spaces in the first round.. i’m starting it right now and i was confused also but i’m looking right at the picture, it should be 12dc..

This is beautiful, hope the one I do will look as good!
Thank you.

Will try real hard to make it turn out as lovely as the picture. i may not put the tassles on the end but taper it instead. All the credit goes to you!
