Quick Fix Lazy Lace

IMG_7486smallI have come under pressure for Christmas presents for many reasons this year. Normally I have it all under control, but not so this year!

A good while back I needed to make some easy lace for teaching purposes and my idea combining the brilliant quality of the Cushendale Bouclé Mohair with a size 15 mm hook makes some very quick and very easy crochet scarves. The combination turned into a luxurious long fluffy neck scarf and I am glad to share the pattern.

Irene’s Lazy Lace Scarf:

Materials: 100 g Cushendale Bouclé Mohair in the colour of your choice. 15 mm crochet hook.

: ch 27 + 3 (30 in total); dc 1 into 6th st from hook. *Ch 3, dc 1 into 3rd st from hook*. Continue *-* to end of row. Row 2: Turn, *ch 3 and work 1 dc into ch sp*; repeat *-* to end of row. Repeat row 2 until you run out of yarn. Weave in ends neatly. Wash and dry flat (do not block to keep yummy bounce).

IMG_7490smallI really enjoyed seeing how far I could push the yarn and utilize the material to it’s full potential. I love mohair and I particularly love the Cushendale variety as it is very easy to work with and does not tangle much. The Lazy Lace effect is honey comb like which makes the scarf rich and magically fluffy and warm. As you can see, I’m on a mission making a quick pile of fluffy prettiness for ladies necks.

Give it a go yourself, if you are stuck for a quick present!


Lazy Lace Scarf

IMG_6570smallI always had a weak spot for mohair, particularly the bouclé variety and I still do. First of all, I adore the fluffy cloud of puff that it gives when worked. I adore it because the sky is almost the limit when it comes to hook size and the colours are usually great as well, and finally, it has great mileage too.

I have been eyeing up the luscious colours of the Cushendale Bouclé Mohair for a while and the other day when I was groping around the hooks at The Yarn Room I found a size 15 mm hook and I simply had to try it out and thought the mohair and the hook was a marriage made in heaven. I think this simple scarf could be a seller at the Yarn Classes where some of the women have already mentioned The C-word

I worked this Lazy Lace Scarf in the wonderful Glacier colour. The icy cold yarn colour reminds me of the crisp winter sky on a clear frosty day of the island where I grew up in Denmark. I worked it as a long puffy scarf that can be doubled as is the fashion or simply just wrapped around the neck three or four times forming a charming puff. Simple but effective…

Apologies for the poor picture quality, daylight is becoming scarce again, more time for the hook, right?…
