Sapphire Lace Scarflet

Best Blog Tips

The classic, go-with-anything quality of navy blue has made it an enduring color in women's closets for generations!
The convenience of the color has been softened by the presence of lace edges to create a relatively simple to make, feminine scarflet that wears easy and well. For your convenience, I used a readily available and affordable yarn.

Materials-

Red Heart worsted weight yarn, Soft Navy (1 skein)
Crochet hook size H
Blunt needle (to weave in tails)
Scissors

Side #2-
Note-
This side of the scarflet will be 1 row shorter than the opposite side, because of the gaping hole of the keyhole, if you make it the same length as the other side,
it will appear to be longer, and the ends won't match. If you make it one row shorter, the ends match perfectly.
