The Lacy Hair Scarf was actually the first hair scarf pattern that I designed! Even before the Elegant Hair Scarf (also a free pattern).

My hair scarves are inspired by those glamourous silver screen icons. The carefree car rides over the mountains or along the coast in beautiful old convertible cars. Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, fabulous Italian backdrops …. you get the idea.

The Lacy Hair Scarf has such a gorgeous lacy texture to it. And you can make it with or without the solid ends. Or make it shorter so it can be wrapped around a bun or pony tail. It makes such a glamorous hairband.

 

 

Hints and tips when making the Lacy Hair Scarf

The biggest tip I can give you for this one is to crochet it whilst the house is quiet!

I made the mistake of not and lost my place in the rows several times which was so frustrating. Because of this you will need to concentrate  a little more than with some of our other patterns despite the easy stitches used. In fact one or two of my testers made the same mistake.
