Description

Crocheting a rectangular scarf on the bias in Tunisian filet is rare for Tunisian crochet. Aeroette features the Tunisian foundation slip stitch increase method for this. 

Starting this scarf in one corner and finish at the opposite corner means you can easily make it wider for a wrap. Use any yarn; the special filet lace edging is crocheted as you go, and this makes it easy to predict how much yarn you’ll need to finish.

I originally designed Aeroette to be a practice pattern for a crochet class on the popular Aero WrapLike Aero, the scarf length and width are easy to adapt to the amount of yarn you have on hand.

Skill Level

Intermediate. Includes a stitch diagram and printer-friendly photo step-outs, for for lefties too. See Burly Bias (rated Advanced Beginner) and Tunisian Shakti Scarfythings (rated Easy) for good introductions to Tunisian biasing

  • How to edge Tunisian crochet with lacy filet spaces as you go.

Materials

  • Tunisian Crochet Hook: Size US G/7 {4.5 mm}, minimum 10″ long, or size required for gauge.
  • Yarn: Abuelita Yarns Merino 3 Ply (100% fine imported merino wool; 420 yds {384 m} per 3.5 oz {100 g} skein): 1 skein.

To substitute a yarn of the same thickness: Choose a #1 Super Fine Weight yarn with a recommended hook size range of US C/2 {2.25 mm} to US E/4 {3.5 mm}. These yarns may also be called Fingering, Sock, Light Sport, Baby {3-Ply}. 

To substitute a thicker or thinner yarn, try a crochet hook size that is 2 to 3 sizes larger than usual for the yarn. The stitch diagram and basic pattern instructions will work for the yarn type, yarn amount, and hook size you decide to use.
