How to Crochet Lace Scarf with Flowers Design, Mile a Minute, Crochet Video Tutorial

Hello Crocheting Friends, 

I can't believe it's June already! Where does the time go? I feel like the older I become, the faster time flies by! 

I've been super busy over the last three month as I started working full time outside of home. 

Not only I'm busy with my full-time day job, I've been working hard on my Youtube channel

I now reached 5,000 subscribers! And I was also approved for the advertisement on my channel.  So hopefully, my hard work will start paying soon. 

I am excited to share my most recent project with you! 

I so much enjoyed making this lace scarf with flowers design! I also want to try this pattern with cotton thread size 10 to make delicate curtains. I think it will look lovely! 

This pattern works in long strips. I believe such technique is called mile a minute. 

It was easy for me to show it in a video, but a written pattern would be to complicated to follow. So no written pattern this time, only a video!

And actually, now that I have a Youtube channel, I am considering doing only videos for my free patterns. 

I've shared so many of my free, written patterns on my blog over the last several years. And I often see my patterns being misused, posted on other sites without my permission, etc. 

It's not fair that other people are making money from my work while I struggle to pay my bills. So right now I'm rethinking my crochet business strategy and exploring new ways to monetize my work. 

Wish me luck! :) 

The video tutorial for my Lace Scarf with Flowers Design is available on my YouTube channel

Happy Crocheting!
