One Skein Crochet Mesh Scarf-Spring Cheer Scarf

Yes, the title says it is a one skein project; and it truly is. However, if you want a project you can be proud of other than the mesh, I encourage you to add the ruffle design. The ruffle design takes the scarf up a whole notch. If you don’t care for ruffles though, take a look at the Beautiful You Scarf for a simpler, no ruffle design.

This crochet mesh scarf is also a good way to use left over yarns of the same weight. Even though this pattern calls for DK yarn, it can also be made with a worsted weight yarn and customised as long or as short as your yarn allows or you want it.

yarn choices

Don’t be afraid to explore with yarn combinations either. If you take a good look at the photo above, you will notice that the smaller skeins have a different texture to the bigger yarn skein; that is because I have mixed acrylic and cotton for the scarf. Can you guess which is acrylic and which is cotton?

This mesh scarf is easy to style with your outfits, and depending on the colour you use for the body of the scarf, it can go with most outfits.

  1. I really thought this pattern made a beautiful scarf. I was trying to use up some bright yellow and green Sinfonia yarn and some other fancier thin cotton yarn I had. So my main scarf was bright golden yellow with green, hot pink, golden yellow and maroon ruffles. I am very happy with it and cannot wait to show it to my crafting partners with whom I meet once a month! Thank you Rose for this pattern!
