This crochet lacy scarf pattern is surprisingly simple. Lacy patterns can tend to look intimidating until you realize those lacy bits are made mostly of chains! The repeating shell stitch is made of five double crochets in the same stitch. Easy.
In August my mom and I took a trip up to the North Shore for my birthday. It has always been one of our favorite places to go and it was amazing to be able to spend a gals weekend together without kiddos. We ate, shopped, walked and ate some more. Of course, some of that shopping was checking out the local yarn shops. (If you are ever in Duluth, I highly recommend visiting Yarn Harbor.)
Fancy yarns are usually out of my price range, but seeing as it was my birthday, I splurged on myself a bit! When it came time to plan for Mother’s Day this year, it seemed like a perfect idea to use the yarn I bought with her to make something for her.
