Well, the Polar Vortex arrived this week and it was so super cold for the South!! We did miss out on all the snow, though, unfortunately. My kids were so excited because the weather channel was forecasting 1-3″ (which is a lot for us!) and they wanted to build a snowman. As the day got closer, the forecast kept changing to less and less snow until we got absolutely nothing! It was a bummer, and we still had to deal with the cold. Luckily, though, we all have plenty of knitted and crocheted winter wearables to keep up warm when we go out!
The most popular pattern on my blog is the Duchess Baby Blanket and I wanted to use the same stitch pattern for a new project. I really loved this Red Heart Colorscape yarn and thought that it would be a perfect match. I’m so thrilled with how it turned out! The Duchess Lace Stitch gives it a nice scalloped edge on the ends, too. Take a look:
So I will keep plugging away at the winter wearables while planning all my spring projects. Tennessee weather truly is bipolar, though, and this week it’s supposed to get up to 69 degrees!! We dress in layers around here. 😉
Duchess Lace Scarf
What You’ll Need
Yarn: Red Heart Colorscape, 2 skeins Mykonos
Hook: J-10 (6.00mm)
Gauge: Not crucial for this project
Finished Size: Approximately 4 1/2″ wide x 72″ long.
Row 1: (2 dc, ch 3, sl st) in 4th ch from hook, *sk next 2 ch, (2 dc, ch 3, sl st) in next ch; repeat from * across; turn.
Row 2: Ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 3, sl st) in next ch-3 sp; repeat from * across, ending with dc in top of turning ch; turn.
Repeat row 2 until desired length (my scarf measures 72″ from beginning and I had enough yarn from the second skein left over to knit a hat!).
Bottom Border: Join yarn at bottom corner. Work row 2 across foundation chain, working in the chain spaces created by skipping chains on the first row.
That’s it! This is a super simple pattern repeat with a regal feel. Be sure to check out my library of free crochet patterns.
