This Lacy Crochet stitch could easily become a border for an afghan, or crocheted into it’s own afghan. I can see this crochet stitch done in thread and a smaller hook and used to make a large crochet afghan for a Queen or King size bed.

Chart pattern 176 –



This stitch is done in multiples of 8 + 2



Once you chained your multiples to you desired width continue to row 1.




Row 1

sc into 2nd ch from hook. * Ch 3, skip 3 sts, sc in next. * repeat for row. Sc in last st of row. Ch 3 and turn.





Row 2

The fans are made all at once, by that I mean you will be turning your work back and forth as you make the fan, they are not made in rows.




Step 1

Put 4 double crochets into the first sc, find your next sc over and sc to anchor your shell. Ch 3 and TURN YOU WORK



Step 2

now work 1 DC into this first sc. Dc 2 in the next 4 double crochet. Giving you 10 DC’s total. Ch 3 and TURN YOU WORK



Step 3

sc in 2nd dc of row, * ch 3, skip 1 DC and sc into the next * do this total of 5 times. End by single crocheting into the top of the ch 3. Then sc into the next sc to anchor down your shell.




-And this will end your fan.



Now start your next fan by chaining 3 and repeating with Step 1. When you’ve single crocheted into your last sc of the row, ch 8 and turn.





Row 3

Working in your ch 3 spaces that run along the top of your shells, you will skip the first 2 ch 3 spaces and * Double crocheting in the 3rd (the middle one) ch 3 space. Ch 3 and skip the next ch 3 space and SC into the last ch 3 space. Ch 3 * repeat for row. You should end your row by single crocheting into the last ch 3 space. Ch 3 and turn.
