crochet lacy scarf is a great source for inspiration for a new project.  They have so many patterns available and they're free.

A pattern that I found and tried was the crochet lacy scarf pattern.  I created it with a soft chunky yarn (image below) and it worked out beautifully.  I only wish I had the same yarn so I can crochet it again.  It has gorgeous Fall colors.

I am, however,  planning to use a different yarn to see how it will turn out.

The pattern is below if you want to try it.  Let me know how it goes for you.

Or...if you don't crochet but would love the scarf for yourself, you've come to the right place!.

1 pattern rep = about 3 in. (7.5 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Ch 19.
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook (first 4 skipped chs make turning ch-sp), dc in next ch, *(dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch, skip next ch, dc in next 2 ch; rep from * across to last ch, dc in last ch - 3 pattern reps at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 4 (for turning ch-sp), turn, *(3 dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch-3 sp; rep from * across to turning ch-sp, 3 dc in turning ch-sp.
Rep last row until nearly all yarn has been used. Fasten off.

Weave in ends. 

What do you do?

I met an Indian dentist the other night and after the introductions, he asked me what I do.  I answered, "I'm a housewife!"  ...
