Cantina Scarf: Flounced Filet


  • Fancy, fast & portable filet crochet scarf project.
  • Low-fuss beading option and easy changes.
  • Pictured scarves required approx. 260 yds.

More details below.


Cantina Scarf is the yarn-partying sister of the Emdash and Antoinette scarves. Like Antoinette, this one’s a holiday-inspired design; in silvery colors and beaded picots, the flounces remind me of silver bells. 

This is a fast and portable filet crochet project in the Easy skill category. The pattern includes optional intermediate-level skill-building refinements: Special Turn, Centered stitches, and Standing stitches. It naturally lends itself to color changes and scrap amounts of yarn. The beaded option is low-fuss because you only need string on enough beads for one flounce at a time.

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • How to start a new filet stitch row with a neat, even edge.
  • How to crochet filet stitches so they stack up in centered columns.
  • How to crochet polished-looking super-tall stitches for dramatic effect.
  • How to create quick and lovely layered lace flounces.

Finished Dimensions 

50″ x 5″ at flared points (127.0 cm x 12.7 cm). Change these dimensions using guidelines provided in the pattern. UK and Australian equivalents for American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms are in brackets { }.


  • Crochet Hook: US G6/4mm or size required for gauge. 
  • Yarn used: DesigningVashti Lotus Snacks (52% Cotton, 48% Rayon; 85 yds/77.7 m per 1.16 oz/33 g ball). For 3-color “Silver Bells” version, 1 ball each of Satin Grey (MC), Crystal Blue, and White Blaze. For 13-color rainbow version, 20 yds/18.3 m (7.7g, or ¼ of one ball) per color. To substitute, choose a #2 Fine Weight yarn with a recommended crochet hook size range of US E/4 {3.5 mm} to US G/6 {4.0 mm}. These yarns may be called Sport or Heavy Sock {Light DK, 5-Ply}.
  • Seed beads, optional: 15 beads per flounce (i.e., per 4″/10cm of scarf length). I used jumbo size 1/0. If you change the width of your scarf, the number of beads per flounce will change.
