Picot Fan Wrap Crochet Pattern
Our latest shawl crochet pattern is here: the Picot Fan Wrap! As the name implies, we used picot stitches and “fans” (shells with spacing) to get the look. I love this wrap because it is so very pretty and lacy yet it was actually pretty warm against the chill air in Kansas when I took it outside to take pictures!
I love the idea of wrapping up in this by the fireplace or even outside around a bonfire! The best part about this pattern is that it doubles as a Super Scarf!
I really like a pattern that is versatile like this. Which is why the Paige Mod Scarf is one of my favorites, too. They can be worn in so many ways!
What I Used

I used Lion Brand’s Mandala yarn in Pixie (shown in the pictures) to make this wrap. I used 2 cakes, which was around 1000 yards of DK/Light weight #3 yarn. And of course, I also used my Furls Streamline Galaxy 4mm hook.
You will also need scissors, tapestry needle, and you might want some stitch markers to mark the first and last stitches to make sure your edges are straight.
I personally really love Mandala yarn however, this would look equally as gorgeous in a single color of light weight yarn. Maybe one with sparkles?
To get the gauge, I worked up a 4″ x 4″ swatch of double crochets. I came up with 15 double crochets in 8 rows to get the 4″ square measurement. To get this gauge, either work 15 foundation double crochets (we have a video here) or chain up 14+3 (17), and double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook–your 3 skipped chains will count as a double crochet.
Continue working double crochet rows until you reach 8 rows and measure your square. If you are at or near 4″, then you’re spot on! If you’re a little small, go up a hook size–4.5mm or 5mm–or tighten your tension a bit with the 4mm. If you’re too big, go down a hook size–3.75mm or 3.5mm–or loosen your tension a bit with the 4mm.
The sizing for this amazing wrap is 75″ long by 28″ high. This is the standard sizing for a rectangle shawl, and not far off for a super scarf. You can make this narrower or longer if you like. Even wider or shorter!
Special Stitches Used
The only special stitch I used for this was the Picot. To work a Picot, [dc in next dc, ch3, insert hook down through top of dc just made, slip stitch to close]. In other words…
Step 1: DC in next stitch
Step 2: Ch3 (figure 1)
For Step 3: Insert hook down through top of dc just made and finish a slip stitch to close (figures 2-4)
Ch(s) – chain(s)
Ss – slip stitch
St(s) – Stitch(es)
Sk – skip
Rep – Repeat
Sc – single crochet
