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.
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
