Description

Included: photo step-outs and a stitch diagram for both right- and left-handed crocheters. 

The idea for Aery-Faery came from watching Once Upon a Time (a TV series based on fairy tales). I wondered if a glittering mohair and silk lace version of Aero and Warm Aeroette would be spellbinding. I proudly present Aery Faery.

Unlike Aero and Aeroette, (but like the new Diamond Ennis!), Aery Faery is not started in one corner. No increasing along the end of the Forward Pass is required. You can either seam the ends together to create a loop scarf, or steadily decrease to create scarf corners.

Skill Level

Intermediate. Here’s a list of five basic rules of Tunisian crochet patterns. Tunisian Shakti Scarfythings is rated Easy and would be a great introduction to simple lacy biasing. Aery Faery is a simplified version of my dramatic summery Tunisian filet designs like Aero and Ennis.

This pattern will likely be a new experience if you haven’t already crocheted an Aeroette (or Aero, Four PeaksShaktisIslander, or Petals), so I go slowly through the first rows and review key basics, just like I would in a class. As you continue with the pattern you’ll see Aery Faery’s simple logic. This will empower you to create exciting variations.

I’ve kept the pattern abbreviations to a minimum. Some may be new to you because they are specific to Tunisian lace crochet. UK and Australian equivalents for American terms included.

?After using this pattern, you will know (if you didn’t already): 

  • How to crochet a rectangular wrap with lacy offset rows of Tunisian crochet stitches.
  • How to turn a filet net parallelogram into a diagonal mesh-like rectangular scarf.
  • How to enjoy crocheting with a super fine weight fashion mohair yarn.
  • How to edge Tunisian crochet with lacy filet spaces as you go.
  • How to square up Tunisian filet edges with lean picots.

Finished Dimensions 

60″ x 16″ {152.4 x 40.64 cm} measured flat; drapes to 72″ {183} long. Width and length are easily customized.

Materials

  • Tunisian Crochet Hook: Size US G/7 {4.5 mm}, minimum 10″ {25.4 cm} long.
  • Yarn: Artyarns Silk Mohair Glitter (60% Super Kid Mohair, 40% Silk with Lurex; 312 yds/285 m per .88 oz/25 g skein): 2 skeins; color shown is the stunning opal-like “H-165.” 

To substitute a yarn of a similar Lace Weight thickness: Choose a #0 Super Fine Weight yarn with a recommended hook size range of US B/1 {2.00 mm} to US E/4 {3.5 mm}. The yarn I used is thinner than many mohair blends in this lace weight category, meaning it’s closer to “Cobweb.” To substitute a thicker or thinner yarn, try a crochet hook size that is 2 to 3 sizes larger than recommended for the yarn. See my newsletter #28 for more about crocheting with mohair. My favorite thing to do with mohair yarn is lacy Tunisian crochet!
