Free Pattern: Light and Lacy Windowpane Scarf


  Sometimes acrylic yarns can be itchy and bulky to wear, but this pattern battles that issue with a lacy texture that drapes well. The scarf is long enough to be doubled over and worn in the keyhole fashion, but for warmer days, wear it as a light accessory to accent your outfit.
  A large hook and a fast-working pattern will leave you time to make the matching hat and gloves, and still get out to enjoy the weather or relax by the fire. Finished size: 81" (205.7cm) long and 3 1/2" (8.8cm) wide, with border.


Skill level:
Easy

1 - 14oz skein Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight acrylic yarn
*One 14oz skein will make the Windowpane Scarf, Hat, and Gloves, with leftovers.
