It is time for a pattern remix!!!
What is a pattern remix? Well, it is when you take a pattern and change it just a bit to make it different. Kirsten Holloway organized a fun pattern remix between 13 crochet designers, including myself. You can find the details about the Designer Remix, HERE.
I was so excited to look through all the designers shops and fell in love with Nicki’s Homemade Crafts Lattice Scarf. I knew this was the pattern I would to remix. Look how beautiful it is!
If you know me, you know I am a sucker for texture and this scarf is full of it with those amazing raised diamonds. Nikki also provides a great photo tutorial on her blog as well as a video tutorial for those that like to see it in action. Find her full blog post about the Lattice Scarf HERE.
Now for the Remix, a touch of SP3
I had some Knit Picks Brava Worsted Weight in Red laying around and with the upcoming holidays, this was perfect. I followed Nikki’s pattern until it measured 32″ long. Then to make it different I added a key hole end.
Follow pattern until it measures 32″ long, ending on a row 7 repeat (which completes the diamond pattern).
Key Hole Addition:
Row 1: Ch 2, dc in each st across, turn (31)
Row 2: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc in each st across until 2 sts remain, sc2tog, turn (29)
Row 3-5: Repeat Row 2 (each row will decease by 2 stitches, after row you will have 23 stitches)
Note: in Row 5, mark the middle stitch (12th stitch), this will be the placement of the button you will sew on later.
Row 6-11: Repeat Row 2 (each row will decease by 2 stitches, after row you will have 11 stitches)
Row 12-42: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn (11)
Row 43: Ch 1, sc in first 4 sts, ch 3, skip next 3 sts, sc in last 4 sts, turn (11)
Row 44: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc in next 7 sts & chains, sc2tog, turn (9)
Row 45: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc in next 5 sts, sc2tog, turn (7)
Row 46: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog (5), fasten off and weave in ends
Sew a 1” button on the marked (center) stitch from Row 5.
