Easy Chain Lace Scarf by Karen McCullagh

Easy Chain Lace Scarf

This pattern is available for free.

This is a versatile pattern that can be worked in different weights of yarn to create scarves suitable for any season. Choose a multicoloured yarn with lots of texture and experiment with hook size.

I designed this chain lace scarf for a beginners crochet class around that time fantasy yarn, all hairy and fuzzy, came into fashion in Ireland. Everyone loved the yarn but found it difficult to crochet with because it’s not easy to see the stitches. The pattern is based on the chain lace ground or filling from traditional Irish crochet lace.
