More details below.


I’ve had the idea for this double-flounced spring scarf ever since I swatched filet lace with the first shipment of our Lotus yarn. The name “Emdash” refers to the vertical spacers between tall stitch columns.

Our Lotus yarn of course is great for this, but the pattern works equally well with any yarn or crochet thread you would use for filet crochet. Diagrams, lovely photo step outs, helpful links, and customizing tips are included. It’s easy to change the scarf’s width and length.

Emdash has two design sisters: the fine mohair Antoinette, and the rather boho Cantina. Cantina is Emdash’s double flounce that is beaded and repeated in different colors (or scrap yarns). It started out as an eye-catching way to display Emdash in 15 Lotus colors in a show booth.

Skill Level

Easy Intermediate. This elegant filet crochet project offers Intermediate-level refinements: Special Turn, Centered stitches, and Standing stitches. The first two polish up the selvage-like row edges. Centered stitches disguise the stringy look that often develops at the tops of very tall filet stitches.

While crocheting Emdash you’ll experience:

  • How to start a new tall-stitch row without the usual gap along the edge.
  • How to give an elegant finish to super-tall stitches using Intermediate-level options.
  • How to create lacy double-layer flounces at the scarf ends.
  • How to crochet cleanly centered tall filet stitches in columns.

Finished Measurements

65″ x 7″ (165cm x 17.78cm)


  • Crochet Hook: US G6/4mm or size required for gauge. 
  • Yarn used: Designing Vashti Lotus (52% Cotton/48% Rayon; 3.5oz/100g; 256yds/235m each), 2 skeins.

To substitute a yarn, 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}. To use a thinner or thicker yarn, use a crochet hook size from the larger end of the range stated on the yarn label.
