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.

  4. 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!

      I didn’t use a pattern when I made this scarf. I’ve created scarves of varying widths from 4″ (skinny) to 2′ (oversized). Have fun with it! You’ll find lots of broomstick lace crochet scarf patterns on Ravelry – such as: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/broomstick-lace-scarf-with-help-video
