Aleteo is an easy lace crochet scarf pattern a confident beginner could easily complete. With just one ball of Knit Picks Lindy Chain yarn you can crochet this scarf in just a few hours. Pattern includes blocking photos and instructions.

Aleteo, means “flutter” in Spanish. Add a flutter of color to your favorite outfit!

While I was taking photos of the sample scarf, a baby cardinal was taking her first flight. The nest was located in the bushes next to my front porch. All spring the parents guarded the nest. When I set up my camera and white board for the photos I had no idea what was about to happen. The baby was ready to take her first flight. She flew back and forth over my head searching for safe places to land. I could feel the flutter of her wings as she passed above me. What fun it was to witness the beauty of nature up close.

You can work this scarf in yarn weights from 1 to 3 (fingering to dk). And you can easily adjust the length and/or number of stitches.
