The Orange Blossom Scarf is a simple summer project worked using just one stitch, the herringbone double crochet. The easy filet stitch repeat creates an elegant scarf crochet pattern that you can wear all year long but is especially perfect for summer.

The long rectangular scarf is worked in straight rows with the yarn held double through a larger hook, allowing it to be both quick and easy to make. It drapes effortlessly, the breeze passes right through without stifling you, making it comfy and perfect to wear with any outfit.

You can wrap it around a few times if you want to feel warmer or drape it delicately around your shoulders for a classy look.

More about this elegant scarf crochet pattern

This is a beginner friendly pattern made up entirely with herringbone double crochet stitches. You can make it for anyone and with any type of yarn although I love how it feels and looks with mohair yarn.

I used a larger hook than required which gives it an extra soft and squishy texture. There are holes too due to the filet crochet technique I’ve used making this a very breathable fabric.

If you’ve been looking for a light summer crochet scarf, this is it! Scarves aren’t just a winter accessory — you can glam up your outfits with them all year round.

How to make a filet crochet scarf like this

The instructions are easy to follow and you can customise the scarf however you’d like in terms of both length and width.

It’s worked flat in rows by starting off with a chain that determines the width. If you want your scarf to be extra long or slim, you can make adjustments.

To customise the width of your scarf, begin with a foundation chain that has a multiple of 7 and then plus 2. For example, my scarf starts with 51 ch (that’s 49 plus 2).

To customise the length of your filet scarf, work as many or as few repeat of the set pattern as you like. By adding more length, you can wrap it around your neck more for a warm piece.

To crochet this modern crochet scarf pattern, I used Rowan Kidsilk Haze (70% Mohair, 30% Silk, 230yds, 210m/25g). I needed 6 balls of my chosen colour which was Golden Poppy (683) and held the yarn doubled throughout.

You can use any similar weighted lace yarn for your project. Some great options are:

I think mohair yarn is perfect for this project and if you’re using it for the first time, you’ll easily get the hang of it with this simple crochet scarf pattern.
