The days are getting longer and warmer so that means summertime is coming up soon! I created this scarf to have something to put around my shoulders during the cooler evenings without having to wear a big shawl or a cardigan.
The Inspiration & Design
I wanted to use simple stitches to show off the yarn! I used a V-stitch to give it an open, lacy feel while keeping the pattern pretty easy and mindless. The two rows of double crochet help to open up the stitches while also giving the scarf a bit more structure. The inspiration for the scarf comes from thinking of my mom sitting on her patio enjoying a cup of tea and a book on a warm summer evening. The scarf is named for her, and I just love it (and I love my mom!)
The stitches are good, but the real star of the show is Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta yarn. It does what it says on the wrapper – it certainly feels soft and buttery smooth, and it’s a joy to work with! Any worsted weight yarn will work for this project, but if you can get your hands on some FLB, go for it. This pattern as written will use about half of the healthy sized skein (590 yards) so I’ll need to find a reason to use the rest soon!
