This summer crochet lace scarf pattern works up quick and easy for the intermediate crocheter. It features a lovely open lace, which is designed to keep you cool in the summer months while adding an extra layer of style to your outfit. The summer scarf can be worn long or tied in a knot at the front.
For this pattern I decided to use the same stitch pattern as I used in the Crochet Lace Wrap. It is easy to adjust in size in regards to width and length. And you can wear it loose over the shoulders.
Or tie it in a knot to keep it around your neck nice and secure. This is actually my personal favorite, but the choice is yours.
Another bonus of this pattern is that it is crocheted so that both ends of the scarf look the same. So basically you crochet it to half the length that you want. Then you join your yarn to your starting chains and work until your length matches the first half.
