I was recently asked to create a Lattice Scarf to match my other free crochet pattern, the Lattice Beanie. I was so happy someone asked, because the LTC (Lattice Treble Cluster) is so beautiful and elegant.
This scarf can be used for the winter times, but also for weddings or parties to use over a dress as an accent piece.
To make it easy, I included many photos and even a video on how to do this scarf using the LTC.
I hope you like it as much as I do. Be sure sure to share picture with me once you have finished your piece. You can posted on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram (@nickishomemadecrafts) or even on Twitter (@nickiscrafts).

You will need (click on the item to see which ones I used):
- Premier yarns Deborah Norville Collection Everyday Yarn in the color Snow white (3 skeins or more, depending on the length of your scarf)
- 5.0mm hook
- tapestry needle
2 LTC’s in rows (vertical) = 1.5 inches
1 LTC in one row (horizontal) = 1 inch
Stitches used (click on a stitch to see the tutorial):
in US terms
- sc = single crochet
- dc = double crochet
- tr = treble crochet (as a front post = FP)
- Lattice treble cluster (LTC)
Final size of the scarf (but can be expanded):
The scarf is 8 inches (width) x 4ft (length)
Before you start, you will need to understand that the scarf can easily be adjusted in size whether it is in width or in length. Regarding adjusting the length, that is very easy, just make is longer or shorter (adding or subtracting rows) as you wish.
But regarding making the scarf thinner or wider, you will need to follow the formula = 4 x an even number -1. So for example, for my scarf I used 8 as the even number. So therefore, I had 31 stitches across the row. That is important, otherwise you will have a “diamond” (what the LTC’s create in the end) that is not complete.

Ok, so let’s get started:
Row 1: Ch 32, 1 sc in each st, starting from the second ch from the hook (31 sts), ch 2, turn
Row 2: 1 dc in each st, ch 1, turn
Row 3: 1 sc, 1 FPtr onto the 4th sc from the left (right for a left handed crocheter) of the first row, sk 1 st, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, 1 LTC (onto the FPtr and the 4th sc counted from the FPtr), sk 1 st, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, *1 LTC (onto the last LTC and the 4th sc counted from the last LTC), 1 sc in the next 3 sts, sk 1 st, repeat from * until you have 2 sts left, then crochet 1 FPtr (onto the last LTC), sk 1 st, 1 sc, ch 2, turn
Row 4: repeat row 2
Row 5: 1 sc in the next 3 sts, *1 LTC (onto the LTC’s right below), sk 1 st, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, repeat from * till the end of the row, ch 2, turn
Row 6: repeat row 2
Row 7: 1 sc, 1 FPtr (onto the LTC right below), sk 1 st, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, *1 LTC (onto the LTC’s right below), sk 1 st, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, repeat from * until you have 2 sts left, then crochet 1 FPtr (onto the last LTC right below), sk 1 st, 1 sc, ch 2, turn
Repeat rows 3 thru 7 until you reach the length desired as a scarf. I did mine 4 ft long and used about 2.5 skeins.
Then fasten off and weave in the ends.
How to do row 3:
Step 1: After crocheting 1 sc, you need to do 1 FPtr which you will add onto the 4th sc from row 1. So, yo twice, and insert your hook behind the sc that the arrow is pointing at, yo and pull thru a loop (4 loops on the hook)
Step 2: After you see 4 loops on the hook, yo and pull thru 2, yo pull thru 2, yo pull thru 2 loops (one loop remaining)
Step 3: Then you skip a stitch (arrow) and insert the hook into the next stitch and do 1 sc
Step 4: Crochet 1 sc in the next 2 sts
Step 5: Next, yo twice, insert the hook behind the same sc from step 1, yo and pull thru a loop (5 loops on the hook), yo and pull thru 2, yo and pull thru 2 (now go to step 6)
Step 6: yo twice, and insert the hook thru the 4th sc counted from the last sc that was used in step 5, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull thru 2, yo and pull thru 2, yo and pull thru 3 (LTC made)
Step 7: Now, sk 1 stitch and crochet 1 sc in the next 3 sts
Step 8: Repeat steps 5-7 until there are only 2 sts left, then crochet 1 FPtr onto the sc from row 1 that was used for the last LTC, 1 sc, ch 2 turn and crochet one row of dc’s and ch 1, and turn
How to do row 5:
Step 1: 1 sc in the next 3 sts
Step 2: Yo twice and insert the hook under the FPtr that was created in row 3, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull thru 2, yo and pull thru 2
Step 3: Yo twice again, and insert the hook thru the LTC from row 3, yo over and pull up a loop, yo and pull thru 2, yo and pull thru 2, yo and pull thru 3 (LTC made)
Step 4: Sk a stitch, 1 sc in the next 3 sts
Step 5: Repeat steps 2 thru 4 (substitute FPtr for LTC in step 2) until the end of the row, then go to row 6
