Start this rectangular scarf in one corner and crochet it on the bias to the opposite corner. The special “filet lace”-style edging is crocheted as you go.

Includes printer-friendly photo step-outs and a stitch diagram. Optional photo tutorial for lefties too!

I originally designed Aeroette to be a practice pattern for a crochet class on the popular Aero Wrap. Like Aero, the scarf length and width are easy to adapt to the amount of yarn you have on hand. 

Crocheting a rectangular scarf on the bias in Tunisian filet is rare for Tunisian crochet. Aeroette features the Tunisian foundation slip stitch increase method for this.

Skill Level: Intermediate. Tunisian Shakti Scarfythings is rated Easy and would be a great introduction to lacy biasing.

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

  • How to understand this type of Tunisian crochet design in light of traditional filet crochet.
  • How to edge Tunisian crochet with lacy filet spaces as you go.

Finished Dimensions (After Blocking): 44" x 10.5" {111.76 x 26.67 cm} for a one-skein scarf; width and length are easily customized.

Materials Used for Pictured Aeroette Scarf

  • Tunisian Crochet Hook: Size US G/7 {4.5 mm}, minimum 10" long, or size required for gauge.

These yarns may also be referred to as Fingering, Sock, Light Sport, Baby {3-Ply}. To substitute a thicker or thinner yarn, try a crochet hook size that is 2 to 3 sizes larger than usual for the yarn. The stitch diagram and basic pattern instructions will work for the yarn type, yarn amount, and hook size you decide to use.
