The weather hasn’t decided firmly on what season it belongs in, at least in New York City. That means it’s still scarf weather for the foreseeable future. And, once it gets too warm for scarves, it will get cold enough (at least in the air conditioning) for shawlettes.

This is where lace scarves come in. They work in the cooler weather and in the warmer weather. And, since I used Bernat Maker Home Dec, a bulky, cotton-blend yarn, this particular lace scarf has excellent drape and is very breathable.
I used some of my favorite stitches, the cluster and the v-stitch for this pattern. Although I rated it as an intermediate pattern because of the clusters, a confident beginner can definitely make the Clusters and Vs Lace Scarf!

Clusters and Vs Lace Scarf
Crochet Pattern by Underground Crafter
This textured, lacy scarf has excellent drape and can be worn as a shawlette in warm weather or as a scarf in cool weather. Although listed as “intermediate” difficulty, a confident beginner can make this project.

PLEASE NOTE: I used exactly 1 skein of yarn for this project, so if your gauge is different than mine, you may run out before finishing. That’s why I recommend getting 2 skeins just in case.
- US Size L-11/8 mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge.

- 16 sts x 5 rows = 4” (10 cm) in pattern. Exact gauge is not critical for this project.
