free crochet pattern lacy keyhole scarf

As you all know by now, I love to make feminine items for ladies. If I design a scarf, it has to have an element of loveliness to it, even if the rest of it has simple lines and easy stitches. Josette has a bit of lace at the edges to lend it that element of feminine beauty that makes you feel pretty even if you're wearing it with an old pair of sweat pants and a drab jacket to run a quick errand! It is also very easy, suitable for gift-giving and ideal for charity projects. The scarf was designed in a rich burgundy, a hue that will add a bit of vivid color to any gray, brown, black of navy coat or jacket you might want to wear it with. Enjoy!

I love this and it was so easy. I made one today for my Secret Santa person. I made mine in Soft White. Thank you so much!!

Nance said...

Hi, just wondering . . . I assume you attach the yarn to the beginning of the scarf to do the lacy rows? I don't see any mention of this. :)

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you all so much! Glad to hear that some of you have made your Josette already! Yes, Nance, you attach the yarn to the opposite side and work the lace as before. It is a very easy yet surprisingly good-looking pattern.

Nance said...

Thank you for answering my question. This will be my first project for the "New Year". :)

Craftybegonia said...

You're most welcome, Nance. Hope your Josette turns out gorgeous!

This is just an all around beautiful design! I love the lace panels and the color and I love the fact that it's not a big bulky scarf I would have to tuck way into my coat!

Sara Duggan said...

Hello, thanks for participating in what I hope to be a very popular linky. I crocheted this lovely Josette over the holiday break and will post a photo on the blog soon. Thank you for providing such wonder patterns.

Ferretmania said...

What a lovely scarf and the colour is very pretty.

Rhelena said...

This is beautiful!

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you, @Michele Helton-O'Neil I like to design scarves that are feminine and yes, not so bulky that they would be almost a chore to wear or so so long that they will catch on everything as you pass by. Enjoy!

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you @Saran Duggan for your sweet eancourageing comment. I loved participating in the comment-a-thon. I like to support the efforts of enterprising women in handmade. Wish you success!

Craftybegonia said...

Yes, Sandra Wheeler, I write all of my patterns in American format.

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you so much Rhelena. You do wonderful work also.

Rhondda Mol said...

This is a lovely accessory! I love how it closes (keyhole) and the colour and lacy look :) Shared on Pinterest :)

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you, Ronda Moll. I really love the way that this scarflet turned out. The rich color, combined with the cozy warmth around the neck and the feminine, lacy edges makes it a winner as a gift for yourself or for any of your loved ones or friends. It would make a great birthday gift for a friend.

Rachel Joyce said...

I love all these beautiful scarves! I am starting to dabble a little in crochet (I'm more comfortable with knitting) and I think these scarves are the perfect starting point. Stopping by via our new SITS tribe!

KC Coake said...

What a pretty scarf. I've been slowly reteaching myself to crochet. I knew how as a kid, but haven't done much in a lot of years. This would be a fun thing to make when I figure it out again. Stopping by to say "Hi" from our new SITS Tribe.
Take care,
KC

Craftybegonia said...

Hi Rachel Joyce, glad for your visit! I was just by your site as well. Oh, I would love it if you would make any of my scarf designs for yourself or to give away. Take your pick and enjoy!

Craftybegonia said...

Thank you for your visit, MadebyaPrincess. I'm glad that you liked Josette. I also love the rich burgundy color it has, the classic color goes well with just about anything a woman can wear. Also excited to meet new friends in our SITS tribe :)

Craftybegonia said...

Hi KC Coake! Thank you for your visit, I was just over at your site as well. I love that you like Josette, hope you get to make one for yourself. It is quite easy but turns out as a very effective and lovely accessory. Hope you enjoy wearing yours! Glad we're in the same SITS tribe!
