Introduction

This pretty lace weight scarf is perfect for warmer days.  It’s made from a single skein of yarn, and the main pattern is an easy one row repeat.

I chose the name Summer Sprigs Lace for this scarf because I think the main stitch pattern looks a bit like little buds on twigs.

The scarf is worked in decreasing rows and then the edging is added once the main portion is complete.  No seams!

 

This project would also work in dk and a size 4mm hook for a summer shawl.  I’m not sure how much yarn that would take though – if you try it let me know!

Materials List

·         400m (437yards) lace weight yarn (I used Rowan fine lace – a lovely soft mix of baby alpaca and merino wool)

·         2.00mm crochet hook (or size need to get gauge)

·         St markers (optional)

 

·         Blocking materials

Finished Size

Finished scarf was 146cm long and 26cm wide pre blocking, and 166cm long and 34cm wide post blocking.

Gauge

2.5 repeats of main sprig pattern to 10cms.  Gauge is not critical to this project, but if yours is larger it may mean you need an extra ball of yarn.
