Easy Lace Crochet Scarf | Free Crochet Pattern for summer! | The Unraveled Mitten

I don’t know about you but I love crochet projects that I don’t have to think too much about (like this one, or this one). Ones with repetitive easy stitches that I can work on while I catch up on my favorite shows. This crochet scarf fits that bill for sure!

The Easy Lace Crochet Scarf uses a little less than 1 skein of yarn. I actually had a hard time picking a yarn for this project! I knew I wanted something lightweight but since I typically work with worsted weight or heavier yarn I just wasn’t sure where to start.

I took a peek at my local Joann Store and found this Bernat Softee Baby Cotton Yarn. It is sooooo soft and comes in a variety of lovely pastel shades. It’s a #3/DK weight cotton/acrylic blend. I am looking forward to using this yarn again. This yarn is exclusive to Joann stores and isn’t available online. So do yourself a favor, gather up your coupons and do a little shopping, you deserve it.

UPDATE 3/2019: Yarnspirations now carries this ultra-soft yarn on their website! Check it out here.

I almost used Lion Brand Mandala/Mandala Baby and Knit Picks CotLin (I used CotLin yarn for this pattern here)  for this project so if your looking for a substitution, one of those would be great. But of course you can use any Dk #3 weight yarn your heart desires.

Over all this scarf is pretty long and skinny. It is definitely meant as a “this looks nice with my outfit” accessory vs a “why is it so freaking cold” accessory. I love that its so long, which makes it easy to wear in different styles. This lightweight scarf is so versatile, pair it with a your favorite tee or tank for an everyday look or use it to dress up your favorite summer dress on date night. Its the perfect Spring and Summer statement piece. So many possibilities.

Funny story; I made this scarf way too long because I just got so caught up in the pattern, so I had to pull out about 18 inches!!

  1. Thank you Heather, just what I was looking for to suit a scarf request from my niece – long and skinny 😉 And I love the lacy look 😍

  2. Thank you Heather for sharing this lovely scarf pattern.

    I’m just getting back into crochet after a long time of not wielding hooks and yarn.

    Would this pattern work for a wider scarf? I can’t see why not.

  3. Thanks for sharing the pattern, it looks lovely. Just wondering if I can sell any items I make from your patterns? Thanks

  4. Don’t see the * for row 4 to repeat pattern. Can’t seem to figure it out on my own. Should the row end with a hdc3tog?

  5. Hi! Love this pattern. But when I ch 23 it was twice as wide (sc in 5 from the loop for first row). When i ch 17 I got the same number of stitches per row that I count in the picture of your scarf….just wondering if you have any ideas of what I could be doing wrong.

    But thanks for the pattern, it’s beautiful and fun to do.
