Getting Started:
The Lucy Chevron stitch pattern was inspired by Tamara Kelly’s Craftsy class on increases and decreases.
This pattern can be made wider or thinner by adding or subtracting multiples of 14 chains from the starting chain! Just keep in mind that changing the width will change the amount of yarn used.
As with most lace patterns, this item looks best after it has been blocked to open up the lace. If you are making the cowl, block the item after completing the last row but before joining it into a circle.

Pattern:
Row 1: Ch 44 (the last 3 chs count as the first dc) , 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each of next 3 ch, dc3tog, dc3tog, dc in each of next 3 ch, 3 dc in next ch, [3 dc in next ch, dc in each of next 3 ch, dc3tog, dc3tog, dc in each of next 3 ch, 3 dc in next ch] 2 times. ~ 42 sts
Row 2: Turn, ch 5 (counts as first tr and ch-1), tr in same st, ch 1, skip 1, tr in next st, ch 1, skip 1, tr3tog, tr3tog, ch 1, skip 1, tr in next st, ch 1, skip 1, (tr, ch 1, tr) in next st, [(tr, ch 1, tr) in next st, ch 1, skip 1, tr in next st, ch 1, skip 1, tr3tog, tr3tog, ch 1, skip 1, tr in next st, ch 1, skip 1, (tr, ch 1, tr) in next st] 2 times. ~ 42 sts
Row 3: Turn, ch 3 (counts as first dc) 2 dc in same st, dc in each of next 3 sts, dc3tog, dc3tog, dc in each of next 3 sts, 3 dc in next st, [3 dc in next st, dc in each of next 3 sts, dc3tog, dc3tog, dc in each of next 3 sts, 3 dc in next st] 2 times. ~ 42 sts
Repeat rows 2 & 3: until all yarn is used (3 balls for scarf, 1 ball for cowl) be sure to end on row 3 if making a scarf, or row 2 if making a cowl, and be sure to have enough yarn left for seaming if making cowl.

Block item.

If making cowl, fold item into a circle and use a yarn needle and ending yarn tail to sew the last row and first row together. I used this technique.

Weave in all ends.

Wear or give and enjoy!

Here is a chart as well. Please note that the chart does not include starting chains on the rows, just the full size stitches. Rows that start with a dc can replace the first dc with a ch 3, and rows that start with a tr can replace the first tr with a ch 4. Please do not pin or copy this chart in any way.

  1. This is a very beautiful l. I think I need to add this to my ever growing projects to make list! I am trying to make a lot of my Christmas gifts this year, and my eldest daughter will love this! Thanks for sharing your pattern with us.

  2. I made your Lucy Chevron Cowl scarf and it turned out beautiful, but I am having a hard time joining it to make circle. Did I read the instructions right to complete the 3rd row as my last row. I would appreciate it very much as I love the pattern and would love to make some more as gifts

    • Hmm, it should be that you end after a repeat of row 3 for a scarf, and after a repeat of row 2 for a cowl. I’m going to have to fix that!

  3. j’ai emprunté l’explication dessin de l’écharpe; pourriez-vous proposer la trduction de vos modèles, ce serait très aimable; je vous remercie
