White Lace Spring Scarf, Free Crochet Pattern and Video Tutorial


Hello Crocheting Friends,

Today I present you yet another lacy scarf made with chains, puff stitches, and single crochets. 

The pattern is quite easy, and there are only two repeating rows. 


This stitch is very light and airy and I think it will work nicely for a baby blanket too!

Lilac Lace Spring Scarf Free Crochet Pattern and Video Tutorial


I am really enjoying making scarves in beautiful lace designs and delicate spring colors right now. 

For my next scarf I chose soft lilac color. I used one skein of Snuggly Wuggly by Loops & Threads yarn and a hook size G (4.25 mm).


For the stitch pattern I used a combination of chains, double crochets, and puff stitches. 


The scarf can be easily made into an infinity scarf. Don't make the last row, and simply stitch the ends together. Make sure to flip one end to the other side to form a twist. 



I hope you will enjoy my pattern. I filmed a video tutorial for it as well. I only recently started my Youtube channel, and I greatly appreciate my new followers and supporters! Thank you! 

Feel free to leave me comments either here or on Youtube regarding what kind of crochet videos you would like to see in the future! 

Happy crocheting!

Small Doily Crochet Video


This small doily was literally my very first attempt at writing doily patterns years ago. I've come a long way since then. 

But we all start somewhere when just learning or trying ourselves at something new. 


This is a very simple pattern and maybe it will be someone's very first attempt at thread or doily crochet. 

This doily measures about 5 inches across. I used Aunt Lydia's crochet cotton thread size 10 and a steel hook 1.5 mm. 




The written pattern is here: Small Flower Doily 

and I also made a video tutorial on Youtube.
