The Vintage Crochet Scarf, a free pattern celebrating the 2018 Puget Sound LYS Tour, successfully blends nostalgia and modernity. Inspired by our Vintage Crochet Throw & Afghan, the soft waves of crochet stitches can range from striking to soothing—it all depends on your color choice!

We love the quality of weightlessness that Isager’s Silk Mohair brings to this crocheted scarf. It’s a glowing, lace-weight, mohair/silk blend that’s so light, it nearly defies gravity. Of course, leave it to Isager to devise an exquisite color palette—full of soft, lustrous shades each more delicious than the last.

Approx. 7.5”/19cm width x 56”/142cm length, after blocking.

2 skeins Isager Silk Mohair (231 yds/211m each), 1 skein each of 2 colors.
Or approx. 460 yds/420m in 2 colors (230 yds/211m each) of similar lace-weight mohair yarn.
Designate one as Main Color, which is used for Foundation Chain, Foundation Row & Edging.
Shown in Colors 67 Sage & 68 Heathered Pea Green.

US E/4 (3.5mm) crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge.
Locking stitch markers.
Darning needle.
Blocking wires (recommended) and T-pins.

1 repeat (peak to peak) = Approx. 2”/5cm, after blocking and resting.
Note: To make a swatch, Ch 50 and follow pattern as directed, repeating between * * one more time (your swatch will have 3 complete peaks at the top edge) and repeat Pattern Row seven more times. Block your swatch to 5½ x 5½“/14 x 14cm (the measurement from bottom edge to top edge should be taken from peak to valley). After drying, unpinning and resting, check your gauge.
