After spending 15 years in the fashion industry as a pattern maker and technical designer, in 2008, I decided to leave the corporate world behind to pursue more creative opportunities. I have gotten to hone my couture dressmaking skills by making quite a few wedding dresses. Discovered that I can write, by having a few published magazine articles and was able to do all the technical writing, illustrating and pattern making for two books(GirlÃ¢â¬â¢s World and Happy Home, both by Jennifer Paganelli. Check them out). I was also very fortunate to be able to work in a local yarn and fabric store, which showed me what a varied and inviting community the craft world can be. My next adventure is to expand on my independently published line of pattern for knitting, crochet and sewing.View all patterns by designer (6) »
The Petaline Lace Scarf is an elegant crocheted scarf, that a beginner can make. Who knew that using only chain and double crochet stitches, you could get such a chic looking lace scarf. This pattern shows two different sized samples made in fingering weight and lace weight yarns, both samples used the same size hook. Don't stop there... Try experimenting with other weights of yarn.
Pattern includes written and charted instructions.
Fingering weight scarf - 2 pattern repeats in 3 1/2 inches.
Lace weight scarf - 2 pattern repeats in 3 inches.
Gauge isn't too important for this project. You will want to use a hook size that is 6 to 8 sizes larger than what is suggested for the yarn you are using, for a very lacy look.
