Named after a loved one’s favorite song, Doris Chan’s versatile lace throw was the inspiration for this beautiful scarf, which adds a hint of sophisticated comfort to any room or outfit. With one lovely, lacy stitch pattern and just about any yarn, you can create an array of comforts large or small with these crochet designs. By working a basic rectangle as wide or narrow and as long or short as you desire, you can make anything from a rich throw to a quick scarf. The lace stitch is a variation of the strawberry pattern, an easy-to-remember four-row repeat, with a scalloped side edging made as you go, to minimize finishing. Crocheting a scarf is an easy and quick way to practice simple crochet stitches. Start to crochet a scarf today!
