This is a crochet pattern, not an actual scarf/wrap.
From the ancient Babylonians and Egyptians to the Chinese and Japanese, the fan has long been held as a symbol of good luck and wealth. After 2020, I couldn’t imagine a better gift for a friend, relative or yourself.
This rectangle-shaped garment is a meld of two types of crocheted lace each with two different qualities, but both covered in fans. The shells are warmer, offer more coverage and have a stiffer hand. The ginkgo leaves are open, drapey and decorative. Have fun with color, yarn type and size, as this garment can be a scarf, wrap, or sarong.
Skills needed to make this wrap/scarf-
-Basic ability to make chains, hdc, dc and treble stitches.
-The ability to follow written direction or the ability to read a chart.
-If you are a beginner to lacey stitches, this pattern is an excellent place to start.
-Gauge is NOT critical to the success of this project.
This entire pattern has been charted out, so every unique row is completely rendered, the beginnings, middle and endings.
Hook: 3.5 mm
Measurements: Written directions for two different lengths: 56 inches and 65 inches long and both are 18 inches deep. You can make this much deeper if you would like and I give recommendations for that in the patter as well.
Yarn requirements: I choose to make this in Fiber Seed Sock and Classsic Elites Mika. Each of these yarns has very similar gauge and works up on a 3.5 mm hook for this project beautifully. The photos will give you an idea of what this project looks like in wool and cotton.
You will need approximately 605 yards for the 56 inch version and 705 yards for the 65 inch version.
Note about yarn: several of my testes used Lion Brand Mandala yarn with a 5.0 mm hook and had beautiful results. The large ended up about 75 inches long and the small 65 inch long with this size hook and yarn.
This is a crochet pattern, not a physical scarf/wrap.
This pattern has been edited and is written in accordance with American Craft Councils’ guidelines for crochet patterns. The terminology used, the pattern layout and the way instructions are written is in keeping with what you will find in professional crochet publications.
