Why you’ll love crocheting this lacy scarf

Portable Project: This lacy scarf is portable, making it an excellent on-the-go project. You can take your work with you and stitch a few rows during your lunch breaks, commutes, or while waiting for appointments.
Fab Fashion Accessory: Lacy scarves add a touch of style to any outfit! You can wear this scarf casually with jeans and a t-shirt or draped over a dress for a more formal occasion. The versatility makes it a valuable accessory in any wardrobe.
Seasonal Versatility: A lacy scarf is suitable for various seasons. The openwork design makes the fabric light and breathable, making it comfortable to wear in spring or fall. The lacy pattern can add a touch of elegance to winter outfits without being too warm too!

Design Inspiration

We’ve been invited to a summer wedding and I couldn’t make up my mind whether to accessorise with a lacy scarf or shawl.  I’m still undecided!

I’ve had this 4ply yarn in my stash for ages. It has a metallic thread running through the fibres – perfect for adding a bit of glitz.

I wanted to make the lacy scarf wide enough so that it could be styled in different ways.

It’s wide enough to sit comfortably on the shoulders.

  • The second row is double treble crochet (US treble crochet).
  • The final row repeats the first row.

Yarn Choices

Lion Brand Summer Nights is a superfine/fingering yarn that is perfect for summer projects.

Multi-coloured and twisted with a thin strand of metallic thread, it’s ideal for crocheting shawls, scarves, or summer tops that need a bit of bling.

You can machine wash (30 degrees) and tumble dry garments and accessories made with Summer Nights.

I think it gives a summer wardrobe a fabulous lift!

The colourway I used, Passion Fruit, is no longer available. However, you can purchase other colourways.

Yarn alternatives:

Using 4ply yarn makes the scarf lovely and lightweight and the thin strand of metallic yarn running through gives added glamour.
