Raspberry Tart Scarf, pages 72-74

Bright, luscious yarn combined with a lovely stitch pattern is destined to liven up any ensemble. The bulky weight of the yarn will allow you to crochet it in no time, and the lacy design adds a touch of sophisticated style. Use a brilliant, vivid color for a gorgeous statement piece, or stitch this scarf in your favorite neutral color for a classic accessory you can wear all season.

We regret that this pattern was originally published without gauge information.

Gauge for this project is 7 sc = 4″. If you crochet the scarf with this gauge, after blocking it will be 72″ long as described in the pattern. However, if you do not crochet it with this gauge or block your swatch prior to measuring, you can increase the length by adding multiples of 9 sts and increasing the number of repeats across the row.
