Anne: Crochet Lace Scarf Pattern
This quick, one-skein crochet scarf is an attractive, lightweight accessory casual enough to wear with jeans and pretty enough to wear to a party. This scarf is an easy way to spice up your wardrobe - try a color that matches or contrasts with your favorite outfits!
The motif, commonly called Queen Anne’s Lace, is a traditional crochet lace often used for blankets and tablecloths. This version of Queen Anne’s Lace is worked as a long strip and resembles a side view of the flower heads of a common plant by the same name (there are other knit and crochet patterns which differ but have the same name).
