Shells and Lace Headscarf -free crochet pattern-

This pretty headscarf uses simple chains and shells arranged in a specific manner to achieve this lacy cross-over look; and is finished with slip stitched chains used to tie off.

I chose a light weight bamboo yarn because of it`s elegant silky touch and drape, along with the fact that bamboo is an anti-microbial and moisture wicking fiber; (not to mention highly sustainable) an obvious choice for a summer garment!

  2. Hi, I've try to make this and no matter how many times I do the number of chains is more for 7 sts, even doing 8 setsof shells. Could you help me, please?

    1. It sounds like you could be turning your chain a little bit or adding stitches where they're not needed. If you make sure your chain is straight, and maybe using stitch markers to count every 10 or so. That's what helped me make it. If you want to make less shells, take 13 away from the initial chain 102.

      If that didn't help, then could you describe your problem a little more? I'm making one now. Lol
