Welcome back to the 2018 Scarf of the Month Club!
I had a little bit of a rough start but I am glad to finally be able to share this month’s scarf pattern with you! First off, we have a gorgeous blue cowl from Rhondda and a beautiful raspberry-themed scarf from our guest contributor Kim Guzman! My pattern contribution is a light and lacy cowl that I made using gorgeous yarn from Expression Fiber Arts. The pattern also has beautiful picots that I really think you will like. Scroll down to check out the FREE crochet pattern for my Diamond Picot Lace Cowl. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Crocheting!
Join us for the April 2018 scarf patterns!
Back by popular demand, Rhondda and I are hosting the Scarf of the Month Club CAL in 2018. We will each have a new free scarf/cowl/neckwarmer pattern on our blogs each month, for 12 months! Plus, we will have 12 amazing designers that will be joining us and will each be contributing a new free crochet scarf pattern as well!
If you want to know more about the Scarf of the Month Club CAL, including the schedule, please visit this intro post.
If you would like to share your progress, please feel free to add your Ravelry Project Pages for each of the scarves you make! Each pattern post will include a specific pattern link to Ravelry so you can add your own project. Rhondda has put together a great tutorial on how to add projects to Ravelry, which you can find here.
