Merry Mantel Scarf ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Spread the love

There’s something about crocheted home decor that screams “I love crochet” when I see it displayed in any home. For a few months now, I’ve been contemplating how to add crochet to every room in my home and the mantel scarf was the perfect choice for both my living room and family room! This free crochet pattern was designed for the holiday season, I love mine so much that it’ll be kept up year round! The mantel scarf can be made in four sizes so you can choose the best fit for your mantel, but it can also be made as a table runner or displayed on any shelf!

I really enjoy working with Red Heart Yarns! I’ve worked with Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread before and really enjoyed it but Red Heart Fashion Soft was a new yarn to me when I started this project. Though this yarn works perfectly as the base of the free mantel scarf, I can’t wait to get more in my hands to design something wearable! I love how soft this yarn is, and the drape is perfect! With 18 colors to work with, this yarn would be ideal for many projects.

Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread Classic 10 is a must have for anyone working with thread! And there’s no lack of colors with 55 to choose from. With the wide variety of colors, it’s easy to match colors to Fashion Soft.

    I found another mistake. In row 9 you cannot sc in next tr, because there were no tc in row 8.

    • You are correct. I am working up another sample to ensure no additional mistakes were missed. Please email me at [email protected] with a pattern of your choice for bringing these errors to my attention and for the inconvenience. I’ll be adding a thread gauge in the next update as well.

    I am just on the half double crochet part and have not started with the lacing yet, but in reviewing the pattern for the lacing, it looks to me like the directions for Row 2 are not complete. Is the first part of Row 2 missing, or are the directions complete? If something is missing, could you email me the full directions for Row 2.

    Thank you. I love the pattern and plan on using it on my mantel next Christmas.

    • Hello. The error has been fixed. Thank you so much and I would love to see any pictures.

    Hi, Crystal.
    I have a couple other questions. I am now starting the lacing edging and have a question on the directions for Row 5. It looks like the last part of the directions may be missing. It doesn’t show where to end the row between the *s.

    Also, on Row 8 it says to repeat between the *s to the last sc and then to Ch3, skip 2 dc and ch 4, and dc in next sc. Aren’t there too many steps for the last sc?

    Thanks for your help.

    • Hello, Kathy. I’ve adjusted my ad so it isn’t covering that part of the pattern. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience. Please let me know if you still have questions on Row 8 when you get to it. I’ve looked at mine and it works out. In the meantime, I’ll work another up and double check it.

      Thank you,

    Thanks for your help so far, Crystal. I have one more (I hope) question and it’s mathematical. My scarf needs to be 79″ long. When I did the row of sc before starting the lacing, I ended up with 393 sc stitches. Can you tell me if that’s going to work to have the first row of lacing to end up right, or would I need to adjust the number of sc stitches?

    Thanks again,

    • Hi, Kathy.

      The pattern needs to be in multiples of 12 plus 1. You would need 397 to complete the entire pattern. Please let me know if this helps and if you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

      Best regards,

    And thank you for the quick response. I tried to figure it our for myself, but my feeble brain wouldn’t cooperate!

    • No problem at all!! Took me a while to figure it out ????
