Blue Shimmer Lace Scarf, Free Crochet Pattern and Video Tutorial

Like many of us, I can't go out for yarn shopping, so I've been digging through my stash, trying to find something exciting to work with. I found four skeins of Brilliant yarn by Patons. 

I purchased this yarn last year from a thrift store. I believe now this yarn is discontinued, which is a pity as it's beautiful and I enjoying working with it! 

I made myself a pretty scarf. Nothing fancy, just one repeating row of crochet shells.

Because I only had four skeins (664 yards in total), my scarf came out only 46 inches long (13 inches wide), but I use a pearl pin to style it with, and it looks very pretty.

The pattern is very easy. We start with a chain that is a multiple of 7, plus 4. 

For my scarf I started with chain 60. 

Row 1: (3 dc, ch 3, 4 dc) all into 4th ch from the hook (beginning shell made), *skip 6 ch, (4 dc, ch 3, 4 dc) all in next ch (shell made)* across. 

Continue working into the other side of the original chain. *(4 dc, ch 3, 4 dc) all in ch where shell was made* across. Join with sl st to top of starting ch. 

From this point, continue working in rows.

Row 2: sl st to ch-3 space of 1st shell, ch 3, (3 dc, ch 3, 4 dc) all in same ch-3 space, *(4 dc, ch 3, 4 dc) all in ch-3 space of next shell* across. 

Repeat Row 2 for the pattern. Fasten off.
