This summer crochet lace scarf pattern works up quick and easy for the intermediate crocheters. 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 over the shoulders to help protect against the sun. Or tie it in a knot to keep it secure around your neck. This is actually my personal favorite, but the choice is yours.
The Stitch Pattern
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. It features a simple v-stitch along with a simple mesh lace.
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 the opposite side of your starting chains and work until your length matches the first half.
I used Bernat Cotton-ish yarn to make this scarf. The yarn has been discontinued, but any light #3 cotton yarn should look just as well.
And if you’re looking for something stylish for the winter weather you might also get away with an acrylic. I’d do a swatch first to see how it blocks and go from there.
