Yes, my first video tutorial… very simple and basic… I hope it helps. And please don’t be to hard on me… it is my first one, so please excuse my beginner level editing skills;)

Thank you Scarf!

I love to make gift for friends and family rather than just buying something from shops, and when I do I try to buy local. Of course there is not always time for it but I try to make time to create something special with lots of love and care.

This time I needed to make a gift for my very good friend N… she is amazing woman – strong, warm, caring, giving, great mother and makes most amazing food (I always over eat in her house coz its tastes so good).

She helped me a lot during busy months of May and I wanted to thank her for all that she done for me and my boys.

I ordered yarn and decided to make a lacy scarf and after I couldn’t choose pattern on the web… I came up with my own pattern. First I showed  scarf to girls from Get hooked class … they loved it and ask to share pattern. So it’s been written and then tested (but if you find mistakes please let me know).

P.S. –  my friend love her new scarf!!

And now I’m sharing it with you… I’m sure you have someone special in your life … daughter, sister, mother, aunt, girlfriend… that you would like to make this scarf and say – Thank you for been part of my life xx … Oh dear! It sounds like TV ad)))) … at least I’m not trying to sell you stuff))))



You will need

  • 3  balls of Eco cotton (50gr) by Nurturing fibers (Bordeaux) or other yarn of your choice in DK;
  • 3.5 or 4 mm hook –size of your hook depending on your tension. I used 4mm;

  • sl.st. – slip stitch;
  • rep – repeat;


Chain 37.

1 round – 1 ch, 1sc in to 2nd ch from hook, * 5ch, miss 3 ch, 1sc * – rep *-* 9 times.

2 round – 7 ch, *1sc into 5ch space, 2 ch, 7dc into next 5ch space, 2ch, 1sc into next 5ch space, 5 ch* – rep *-* 2 times. Finish row with 1sc into next 5ch space, 2 ch, 7dc into next 5ch space, 2ch, 1sc into next 5ch space, 2ch, 1tr into last sc from previous row.

3 round – 1ch, 1sc into tr, *2ch, 1dc in to each of the next 3dc from previous row, (1dc, 3ch, 1dc) into next dc, 1dc in to each of the next 3dc from previous row, 2ch, 1sc into 5ch space* rep *-* 3 times , just in your last repeat you will make 1sc into 7ch space from previous row.

Now work repeating rows 2 – 5 to make desired lengths. 3 balls of eco-cotton was enough for 30 repeats in total, but it depends on your tension.
