Summer Scarf

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word scarf? For many people they think of cold winter days and snow. Scarves are a fashion item that can be worn year around! In winter a scarf is made for warmth, but in summer, a scarf is more of a fashion statement.

The summer crochet pattern for this week, is a summer scarf made with a cotton dk yarn crocheted in a light and lacy pattern. *This is a revision of my Light and Lacy scarf pattern published in Happily Hooked Magazine Issue #7, October 2014*

Here we go a skein:                                                                                                                      Summer Scarf

Crocheted scarves make great accessories, since they add a dash of color or personality to any outfit and can be worn around the neck or on your head. 

The summer scarf pattern is great for crocheters of all levels and is quick and easy to make! The stitch pattern is a three row repeat, using basic crochet stitches and a spike dc stitch. The edging is done in a reverse sc which gives the edges a finished look.

Grab your hook and yarn and crochet a summer scarf for you or make one for a friend!

Have a hooky day! Lynne

Mandala: Colors of Summer

The summer season has begun! The kids are out of school! This is a time when the sun shines bright and people are spending more time out of doors. For many it is time to go on a family trip or have a stay at home vacation. I remember those fun summers as a kid, out in the sunshine, eating popsicles, Fourth of July, spending time at the beach, and getting together with family! 

For the month of June we will be posting summer crochet patterns, starting with a summer Mandala. 

Here we go a skein, FOTH:

                               Colors of Summer Mandalas

These mandalas are called the Colors of Summer, since each one of these mandalas tells a story of a summer past:

                                         Fun in the Sun
This bright color mandala with the yellow center reminds me of the sunny summer days, sitting on the curb in front of the house eating bright color popsicles with friends.

                                          Beach Days
This mandala reminds me of the time we spent at the beach as kids. The blues are like the waves at the beach and white reminds me of the white foam on the top of the waves.

The good old red, white, and blue, these colors remind me of the American flag, the Fourth of July, and fireworks!

I love to have these colorful mandalas around the house to remind me of summer fun!

Grab your crochet hook and make some summer memories!

Have a hooky day! Lynne
