Lacy Waves – Fall Crochet Scarf
Design by CrochetNCrafts.
This fall crochet scarf pattern features a pretty open lace, which makes it perfect for transitional weather. But, depending on your outfit, you can wear it throughout the seasons. If making this for a summer scarf, you could always choose a cotton to keep you cool while accessorizing.
You will definitely want to block this scarf to bring out the pretty stitch pattern. All you need to do is wet it down and squeeze out the excess water. Then lay it flat to dry. You can use pins or a wire to keep the edges straight.
The Stitch Pattern
The stitch pattern is an open wave stitch made simply with chains. Double crochets, half double crochets and chain one spaces are also added to the mix to create a unique fabric that you can wear year-round.
It’s the perfect pattern for beginners who have mastered the basics and are ready for the next step in following a pattern.
The finished Size is 7.5″ wide by 54″ long. However, in a multiple of 4 + 2 you can easily adjust the width as needed from child to adult.
I chose Caron Simply Soft, a medium #4 worsted weight acrylic yarn. It helps to bring out the beautiful stitch pattern, but you could always experiment with other acrylics as well if you want.
I chose a solid color yarn, but I can imagine a self-striping would look super awesome too. Or, use up your scraps by working it in a pretty stripes.
