My New Scarf: Broomstick Lace Cotton

This was a white crochet scarf that I made as a gift for a friend for Christmas. It’s a pattern that consists of 8 rows of ribbed half double crochet and four rows of broomstick lace.

It’s made using a DK weight yarn that’s 50% cotton, 50% acrylic. It’s got a lovely softness but still holds some shape. Learn why blended cotton yarns are better than 100% cotton for some items.

I didn’t block it. I admit that I’m not a blocker, reasons to do so not withstanding, but I actually really, really love the curvy shape that naturally unfolded here.

  5. Is there a pattern somewhere for this scarf? It’s so beautiful. I am new to crochet and wondering about some basic stuff like what should be the width? The pattern would really help. Thanks for sharing this!
