Silky Lacey Scarf for my Sister


Silky Lacey Scarf
90% Cotton, 10% Silk, crochet

This cute little number is for my sweet Sister… made especially for her and her love of black clothing. It’s nice and light, not too bulky or chunky, drapes beautifully and has a lace like effect with the stitch combination. It’s actually the Luna Scarf pattern but with my own twist.
You see… I must confess… that I have trouble following patterns… and recipes for that matter! I just can’t help myself and always end up adding in extra spices, vegetables or stitches! I really like adding my own ideas of what I think tastes nice or looks pretty. I don’t think you should feel limited by a pattern – it should form the base of something that you can colour in as you please. Hence I rarely end up following a pattern or recipe to the letter. And to be honest, this pattern called for 383 chains to begin with and didn’t fancy crocheting into 383 chains! Plus I wanted the scarf to be tiny bit more solid/chunky than the original – you know, a little warmth and a little lacey. I also tweaked the picot edge so it followed the natural peaks of the pattern. I think the finished result is a lovely balance of warmth, lightness and lacey – perfect for my sis!
