Shamrock Scarf – A Free Crochet Pattern

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s day is such a fun day to dress up! And if you’ve been wanting to try some lacework, but wary of the finer threads, this may be a great pattern for you!

When I released this pattern last year in my Ravelry and Etsy shops I released it in Patton’s Grace mercerized cotton which is a #2 weight. This year I decided to simplify the pattern and release it in a worsted weight yarn.

I selected Caron Simply soft, it has a great sheen and drape and I’ve paired it with a comfortable 5 mm hook.

As always, you may purchase a convenient PDF download, or if you would like to save this pattern to your Etsy favourites, you may do so HERE or to add it to your Ravelry library HERE.

Thanks again for supporting Rich Textures Crochet and happy Crocheting!
