Hi Everyone! This Duet Scarf pattern is easy mindless and works up quickly. It is open and has a lovely lacy look to it. It also makes great gifts as well. Enjoy!
I designed this scarf especially for Breast Cancer Awareness month. According to BreastCancer.org it is the #1 cancer diagnosed among American women. This scarf is something you can donate to your local cancer center, or you can wear it yourself to help raise awareness for women who are bravely fighting against this disease.
There are many beautiful pieces of music that bring peace and strength to a person’s heart. By naming this the “Duet” scarf I hope you will think of this pattern as a partnership between a woman fighting cancer and the supportive friends and family cheering her on. Beauty. Strength. Hope. All things that a woman needs as she fights to overcome cancer.
I designed this lacy crochet scarf pattern with beginners in mind. It is easy to stitch up and has just enough balance to keep you on your toes. The crochet pattern uses a combination of clusters, chains and double crochets to create the open lacework in the design. I have written out detailed instructions for the clusters in the special stitches section.
Cascade yarn is soft and has lots of drape, making this scarf comfortable and cozy to wear as temperatures start to cool off this month. I used a couple of pink hues specifically for Breast Cancer Awareness month, but if you wanted to use another color when making this as a gift for a woman who is fighting cancer you may.
