Free pattern: Lacy Tencel Scarf

Lacy Tencel Scarf, free crochet pattern by Underground Crafter in Teresa Ruch Designs Tencel 3/2 yarn | A simple, delicate lace pattern and the soft tencel yarn combine to create a transitional weather scarf with excellent drape. Last year, I designed a pattern for Yarnbox, a yarn subscription service.

Ella's Rhythm Shawl, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter. Image (c) Yarnbox.The best part of that project was getting to play with a new-to-me yarn, Tencel 3/2, an exquisitely beautiful hand dyed yarn by Teresa Ruch Designs. Back in June, while I was at The National Needlearts Association summer show, I got to meet Teresa in person. We chatted for a while and I learned that she had recently launched her online shop (in addition to selling her yarn through local yarn shops). Her yarns are so beautiful that I jumped at the chance to use another yarn for a future design.

Normally, I’m not much of an orange person, but as you know, I’ve been trying to get out of my color comfort zone this year. Also, this is some pretty darn lovely yarn. I think Teresa could make any color your favorite!

The challenge was to design a one skein project that would help someone decide to try out her yarns (which are pricey but worth it). The other challenge was what to make with one skein of amazingly drape-y, but not particularly warmth-insulating yarn as we are already into cold weather here in New York City.

But, that’s when I was reminded about how many of my readers come from other parts of the United States, like California (including Los Angeles and San Diego), Texas, Florida, and Georgia, where it doesn’t get nearly as cold in the winter time, as well as international readers from Australia, South Africa, and Mexico who are currently entering summer. So I got to celebrate fall with orange while still making something lacy and delicate. The best of both worlds!
