“Dream. Let nothing dim the light that shines within you.” --Maya Angelou

Light From Within has been updated with stitch charts, and updated to my current format and style. I also improved some of the row ends in the lace section when making the charts. All buyers will receive the update in their Ravelry Library for this pattern.

I love this quote! We all have an inner light, a dream, within us. It’s important to keep that light bright, stay focused and hold onto our dreams. My Light From Within scarf has little “windows” to let the light shine through.

Light From Within is a clever cowl version of the classic boomerang-shaped scarf. It has the same shape and drape, and gives the same look as the popular boomerang scarves in a very easy-to-wear version.

The scarf is crocheted flat and the rows are on the diagonal. The stitch pattern of the main section is an easy-to-memorize two-row repeat. Once you reach the specified stopping point, you crochet the lace section of nine rows. Then, I recommend wet blocking the scarf before sewing the final whip stitch seam to join in the round.

This is an easy and fast scarf to crochet and can be made in one afternoon. And, with one skein of fingering or sock weight yarn, of at least 400 yards (or 100 grams), you can make two scarves! This is truly a scarf you can share with friends and family. Make one for yourself and one as a gift.
