So I’m back from my hiatus. I apologize for not bloggong for so long,but I really haven’t really been in the craft mood,and since this is a craft blog,I didn’t want to go on about my personal stuff. Those of you that read this,let me know if you want me to write even if it’s not dealing with my craftwork.
Okay,so,these past two days,I’ve been working on a scarf pattern that I really have enjoyed. I take no credit at all for the pattern itself,as it’s a stitch pattern found in almost every stitch directory out there! I found it in a book at the library. I had done a search on tyhe web,but had no real luck in finding what I was looking for. The pattern is called “Queen Anne’s Lace” and apparently there are two different patterns in the crochet world that are called by that name. One is a motif and the other is a strip. The strip is what I was after. Like I said,I found it at the library.
I had used the pattern years ago to make an afghan,but never kept the pattern…like a dummy. It’s extremely easy,and very attractive. I decided to use one strip and some Red Heart acrylic from my stash to make a scarf. Here are some pics and after that I’m sharing the pattern that I did to get the scarf. Have a great day and I’ll be back later!!
Queen Anne’s Lace Scarf:
I used 1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Shocking Pink and a size “J” hook
Chain 6 and join into a ring.
1: Chain 3,work 13 dc into ring. DO NOT JOIN! Chain 1,turn. Work a sc into next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Chain 6,turn.
2: Slip stitch into the 1st free ch4 loop. Chain 3,turn. Work 13 dc into the ch6 loop. Slip stitch into the the 1st sc of the 1st motif,chain 1,turn. Sc in next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Chain 6,turn.
3: Slip stitch in 1st free ch4 loop of adjoining motif,chain 3,turn. Work 13 dc into ch6 loop. Slip stitch in next free ch4 loop of adjoining motif,chain 1,turn. Sc in next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Slip stitch into next free ch4 loop of adjoining motif. Chain 6,turn.
4:Repeat step 3 for desired scarf length. I worked a total of 50 motifs and got a 60 inch scarf. End off and weave in ends.
This pattern can be done with just about any yarn,but I wouldn’t recommend a boucle or textured yarn,as that would take away from the lacy effect.
