I love to make scarves! So when I opened up an e-mail from Lion Brand about some new patterns, I was really excited to see the pattern for this scarf. The Crochet Lacy Scarf.
Thank Heavens it came when it did. I had totally spaced my SIL's birthday, and that I had promised her a scarf. She has been asking me for one since I made these scarves.
I used Hometown USA yarn from Lions Brand instead of the wool ease the pattern calls for. I love the super chunky Hometown USA yarn. I use it A. LOT. It came out a little wider than I wanted it to. So I unpicked it and started again. The pattern calls for a chain of 19 to start with I did 17. This makes it so you only repeat the pattern 3 times in a row. I hope some of that made sense to some of you.
I love this pattern! The texture and look are wonderful. It may be a new favorite. It is an easy pattern and free from Lion Brand Site. It came together quickly in one day/evening. Which is good because I started it Saturday and her party was on Sunday. Nothing like cutting it close.
My SIL requested white (this official color is ivory). But I think I am going to start one for me in a deep red. It will go with my coat too.
But the ivory does look nice, maybe need two.
Thanks for stoppin' by and hangin' out.
I will be linking up to the parties on my party page. Please check them out if you get the time.
