I love old turn-of-the-century crochet patterns. I adapted this scarf from an insertion pattern in a 1910 publication titled ‘Antique Design or Spider’ by Emma Farnes. If you have ever tried to follow a vintage crochet pattern you know that deciphering the instructions can be very confusing. My version is much easier to understand. Although it looks complicated, this scarf is very easy to make. Finished size is about 5” wide by 58” long - but just keep crocheting if you want it longer. I suggested a size F hook and worsted weight yarn, but any hook/yarn combo will work.
