Autumn Paradox – Free Crochet Pattern

Autumn Paradox

Cool breezes and warm sun, weather that changes on a dime…autumn can be paradoxical and deserves a lovely tribute. This soft handkerchief scarf can be worn over the shoulders or around the neck, adding a gorgeous structural element to any outfit. The double cluster and v stitch work together to create a lacy effect. This scarf is great for those who have mastered basic stitches and are ready to learn a few advanced stitches.

This shawl is apart of the Shawl for Every Season Collection.

Notes

Stitches are reduced in each row by working chains and skipping stitches until the scarf reaches a round point at the end. Once the main section is complete, the edging is created by working specific stitches in each chain space created at the beginning of each row. The scarf may curl up on itself until the edging is added.

The scarf body has a pattern panel that repeats three times. Stitch count is reduced by 4 sts each row after row 1. When working across dc cl sts on next row, skip the chain made to close the cluster.
