I designed this scarf pattern to demonstrate how easy it is to make something with repeating motifs, and how straightforward it is to crochet them together as you go. As you finish each motif, you use part of the last round to crochet it to the previous motifs. And the whole scarf is made up of repeating squares and triangles - easy to work up on the go.
I also wanted to write a pattern to take advantage of all of the amazing hand dyed and kettle-dyed sock yarns on the market. This pattern is a great way to use that special skein of yarn in a project that you can show off whenever there is a chill in the air or an overbearing air-conditioner blowing on your neck. The lave pattern is simple enough that it should work well with both a multi-colored yarn and a tonal.
The scarf is made using basic crochet stitches to form a lace pattern in a motif. Chain, single, double, cluster stitches, slipped stitches, and adjustable rings are used. Motifs are crocheted together as you go.
