Diamond Scarf - Free Crochet Pattern by Nicki's Homemade Crafts


This Diamond Scarf, a free crochet pattern, is super pretty and has a surface crochet stitch surrounding the diamond stitch. However, you do not have to add the surface crochet, but if you do it does bring out the diamond shape even more.

But even without the surface crochet it is super pretty and has a very lacy look. There is not much you will need for this scarf in order to crochet it.

I plan on making many more of this gorgeous scarf, because it makes the perfect gift. I think any girl or women would be happy to wear this Diamond Scarf.

And as many of my free crochet patterns, even this Diamond Scarf comes with at least one video tutorial. This time you actually get 2 video tutorials. One shows you how to crochet the Diamond Stitch for the Diamond Scarf. The other video shows you how to add the pretty surface crochet to give the scarf the extra little touch of elegance.

Although the Diamond stitch looks hard to crochet, it is actually very easy and fast to make and just repeats for a certain amount of rows to create this pretty Diamond Scarf.

I use 2 different kinds of yarn for this free crochet pattern. You are not required to use the same colors or yarn types as this is a scarf and gauge is not too important, but you try to stick with the thickness of the type of yarn I used.

So, let me know tell you how you will need to make this Diamond Scarf and how to make this free crochet pattern.

You will need:


4 dc in one row is 1 inch

Stitches used (click the stitch to learn how to do it, US terms):


This scarf is made with a multiple of 10+7. This pattern calls for 27 stitches, but feel free to add or subtract 10 to adjust the width of the scarf.

All starting chains count as a stitch.

Ch 27

Row 1: dc in the 4th ch from the hook and in the next 3 chs, *sk 2 chs, [dc, ch5, dc] in next ch, sk 2 chs, dc in next 5 chs, repeat from * across; turn

Row 2: Ch3, dc in the next 4 dc; *ch2, sc in the 3rd ch of the [dc, ch5, dc] stitch, ch 2, dc in the next 5 dc; repeat from * across, turn

Row 3: Ch3, sk next 2dc; *[dc, ch5, dc] in next dc, sk2 dc, 2 dc in ch-2 sp, dc in sc, 2 dc in ch-2 sp; sk next 2 dc, repeat from * across to last 5 dc, sk 2 dc, [dc, ch5, dc] in next dc, sk next dc, dc in turning ch, turn

Row 4: Ch4; *sc in 3rd ch of [dc, ch5, dc] stitch, ch 2, dc in next 5 dc, ch2; repeat from * to the last [dc, ch5, dc] stitch, sc in 3rd ch of shell, ch 2, dc in the turning ch, turn

Row 5: Ch3; dc in next ch-1 sp and in next sc, 2 dc in ch-2 sp; * sk 2 dc, [dc, ch5, dc] in next dc, sk 2 dc; 2 dc in ch-2 sp, dc in sc, 2 dc in ch-2 sp; repeat from * to last ch-2 sp, 2 dc in ch-2 sp, sc in sc, dc in the 4th and in the turning ch

Repeat rows 2-5 until the scarf is the length you desire. Mine is 53 inches long. Feel free to make it longer.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

If you do not want to add the surface crochet, that is fine. It will look like this then:

Add the metallic surface stitch:

The metallic yarn is used to crochet over the lacy holes that are around the diamond pattern to bring the diamond more to light.

You start on the bottom and work your way up. Each hole gets one surface crochet, besides the big holes, they get an extra chain. You work your way from the bottom to one side of the edge of the scarf, then you do a 90 degree turn and keep going. You do that until you reach the top.

You do this whole process 4 times in total until all the diamonds are framed with the metallic yarn. Then fasten off and weave in the ends.

You are done.

  1. I have noticed NUMEROUS mistakes in the written instructions. At least one mistake in each row. I would encourage you to go through the written instruction while watching your video so you can catch them all.

    1. Katie, I am sorry for my mistakes. I recently did some changes to my website and some stuff did not get transferred properly. I apologize for that. I fixed the mistakes and it now shows the correct pattern (same as the video). Thanks for letting me know. I appreciate it
