Queen Anne's Lace Scarf

This is a scarf pattern I was testing for MK Carroll. The original pattern was written for one of my absolute favorite ever yarns, blue sky alpaca cotton... but I have such a stash now it seemed silly to go out and purchase more yarn. So I made it instead with lion barnd color waves. The boucle yarn makes the stitch definition hard to see and the end result looks almost felted. Kind of cool...

Hi! Do you know where I can get a copy of the Queen Anne's Lace pattern? I made an afghan in that pattern 20+ years ago, lost the pattern, and have been searching around for it for quite a while now. You can email me at iamfelix @ yahoo (dot) com if you have any info. Thank you! :-)

Chain 6 and join into a ring.

1: Chain 3,work 13 dc into ring. DO NOT JOIN! Chain 1,turn. Work a sc into next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Chain 6,turn.

2: Slip stitch into the 1st free ch4 loop. Chain 3,turn. Work 13 dc into the ch6 loop. Slip stitch into the the 1st sc of the 1st motif,chain 1,turn. Sc in next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Chain 6,turn.

3: Slip stitch in 1st free ch4 loop of adjoining motif,chain 3,turn. Work 13 dc into ch6 loop. Slip stitch in next free ch4 loop of adjoining motif,chain 1,turn. Sc in next 2 dc. *Chain 4,sc in next 2 dc. Repeat from * five more times (6 loops). Slip stitch into next free ch4 loop of adjoining motif. Chain 6,turn.

4:Repeat step 3 for desired scarf length. I worked a total of 50 motifs and got a 60 inch scarf. End off and weave in ends.

This pattern can be done with just about any yarn,but I wouldn’t recommend a boucle or textured yarn,as that would take away from the lacy effect.
