Red Lace Mercerized Cotton Scarf, New Crochet Pattern

 What I like about 100% mercerized cotton yarn is the definition of the stitches on the finished project. 

Mercerized cotton isn't as soft as non-mercerized cotton, and therefore the crochet stitches come out neat and uniform. There isn't much stretch to a crochet project made with mercerized cotton. 

I just love how the stitches are straight and even on my latest project - a crochet lace scarf, which I crocheted along the length. 

The yarn that I used is category 2 or DK, and I worked with a hook size E (3.5 mm). 

The specific yarn that I chose is YarnArt Begonia. You can check it out on Amazon. 

For my scarf, I used four skeins in red color. The finished measurements of my scarf are about 56 inches long and 12 inches wide (after blocking).  

This was not the first time I worked with this yarn. I have used it for many crochet projects before, and I absolutely love it! 

If you love spring and summer crochet scarves the way I do, you must try this yarn and this pattern. I can assure you it's not as complicated as it looks. Only basic stitches are used in the pattern, such as chains, single crochets, and double crochet. 

You can also use this lacy stitch for a variety of other crochet projects, such as table runners, tablecloths, or summer tops/blouses. I included the multiple for the stitch in the pattern, so you won't have to do any calculations to figure it out. 

Also, I have a detailed video tutorial demonstrating this lacy stitch. That's in case you'll need just a bit of visual help! 

The written pattern is available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops! 

For the next few days, it will be 50% OFF (don't miss this chance to save as nowadays we all could use some saving here and there). 

Happy crocheting and stay safe!
