This is a free crochet neckerchief pattern that uses one skein of lace weight yarn. It is a delicate crochet accessory for any outfit!
To say that I am delighted with this crochet neckerchief make is an understatement!
It is a lightweight crochet accessory that will add a romantic touch to any outfit. Made from lace weight yarn, it is light and airy to wear, as well as super stylish.
Very often I get asked a question, what comes first – yarn or idea. Well, in this case it was definitely the yarn that came first!
I was placing a yarn order online and was only a few pounds off the point of qualifying for a free delivery. So, I thought I would much rather spend extra money on yarn rather than postage!
I have added a gorgeous skein of Malabrigo Silkpaca to my order. As soon as I had the skein in my hand, I knew it will have to become something delicate and beautiful.
The yarn has a lovely “romantic” feel to it, so I knew it would showcase my Lotte lace stitch pattern perfectly!
Crochet Neckerchief Pattern Details
Although, the Lotte Lace Neckerchief was crocheted in thin yarn, it worked up surprisingly quick. It is also a lovely size for a neckerchief, so you can tie it around your neck.
You might recognise the stitch pattern. I have previously used it for my Lotte Lace Corner Bookmark which is also available on my blog.
I have also added the picot border around all the edges, not just the last row. This adds a lovely finishing touch which is brought to life by blocking the finished neckerchief.

Crochet Neckerchief Pattern Notes
- The crochet neckerchief is a right-angle triangle shape
- The pattern starts at the point at the right angle opposite the widest edge of the triangle
- You increase at both sides of the triangle simultaneously
- The neckerchief is finished off with a row of picots to open up the lace on the last row
- The picots then continue around the sides of the neckerchief too
- The neckerchief uses the same stitch combination as my Lotte Lace Corner Bookmark
- I have filmed a video tutorial crocheting the bookmark, so, if you are struggling with the stitch pattern, please watch the bookmark crochet video tutorial
- Number of rows determines the finished width and size of the crochet neckerchief
- For a smaller neckerchief work less rows finishing with a row of shells.
- For a bigger neckerchief work more rows finishing with a row of shells.
