Queen Anne's Lace Scarf

Are you ready to see my most prized just-finished creation?  I am in LOVE............


Well, first......I showed a sneak peek....



Then I shared my trials and tribulations getting it blocked.....


And without further ado, I present....my Queen Anne's Lace scarf  (which I just found out is technically an Advanced stitch.....and I'm 1.5 months into to self-taught crochet!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!








I made 60 motifs and am 5'8....it is VERY long.  lol  Pattern called for 50 to 60 motifs...I clearly need to practice with different scarf folding techniques, but I just LOVE this scarf.  So soft!!  So beautiful!!

Here is the FREE pattern:  (Scroll down past the pictures that no longer show for the pattern.)




And if you have trouble reading patterns like I do, PLEASE visit this angel of a blogger, who explained it with PHOTOS - woo hoo!!




And, if you want both ends of the scarf to match, try this new tutorial:



Have I mentioned how much I love crocheting???  And apparently over 1800 other crocheters on Ravelry love this pattern too.  For crochet heaven photos, check out Ravelry!!


I may be linking up to THESE parties!
