Carnation Lace Scarf

Carnation Lace Scarf

A few years ago, I crocheted this beautiful scarf / shawl and had it on my website as a free pattern. A few years and a website provider change later, the original pattern went missing from my site. It’s been my goal to offer this pattern for free again, and I’m so excited to finally have a home for it! 

The Carnation Lace Shawl is a multi-purpose wrap, scarf, shawl - you name it! It’s big enough to be a wrap, but you can easily turn it into a scarf, too. I personally love it for spring because it makes a great cover up. A lot of my spring and summer dresses are not really suited to the Eastern Washington spring weather - it’s not unheard of for us to get a random cold front and even a little snow on a 60 degree-high day! I usually carry around something like this when I wear a dress or any type of short sleeve in the spring because you just never know what the day will bring. 

You’ll love that this stitch looks like little carnation flowers as it comes together. Personally, I love going with a springtime color because it pairs so well with the neutrals in my wardrobe, but any color will do! The pattern has a few notes to adjust the finished size, which will be helpful if you decide to change your yarn weight.

This pattern is a great challenge piece for a motivated or advanced beginner. If you can make a dc, sc, and ch stitch, you can make this shawl. The pattern includes a chart, which makes all the difference when trying to crochet something lacey, in my opinion. 

As with any of my patterns, feel free to send me an email or a message on Instagram if you need a little extra help.
