Making a scarf is a great way to use up some left over yarn, and this Lacy Scarfette from Vickie Howell is perfect for the springtime! Beautiful scarves like this are great fashion accessories and a fun way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe!
When winter wanes and spring starts to show up with warmer days, it is time to pack away your winter wear and that often means your knit scarf patterns. This can make accessorizing tough! You still want to sport a scarf, but those chunky and warm knits just will not do. This is where scarfettes and scarflettes come in handy. This small, light, and often lacy free knitting patterns let you add a scarf to any look without adding too much warmth.
This gorgeous and glowing yellow crochet pattern is especially charming, because it is inspired by vintage scarfs and fashion. Rather than adding something chunky and trendy, this scarf knitting pattern adds a 50s twist to your look. You don’t have to go to the soda shop to dress like Sandra Dee. You just need to know how to knit!
