New Pattern! Yelcho Lace Scarf

Tunisian Lace in Araucania Yelcho Yarn - a perfect blend of Mohair/Silk/Wool

Gray / Peach / Coral - I love this combination!
This is a wonderful, quick scarf to make for fall!  Sometimes, variegated yarns can be problematic in crochet, but not this time!  I love the way the colors flowed, and then to find some yummy silk ribbon to finish it off . . . just gives it a little extra style.

The light bulb will go off when you see that by simply keeping back the last loop of each double crochet, and adding in some yarn overs, you create this lacy effect.  The drape is more fluid than simple filet crochet, and is actually faster to do.

This will be featured in our "One Skein Workshop" at Lovin' Knit Yarn Shop & Studio, Saturday November 12.  Let's get working on those holiday gifts!
