Tips for Keeping Crochet Summer Scarves Light and Airy
My first secret? Use large hooks and lacy stitches for a crochet summer scarf that can breathe in hot weather. You can even wet block your projects to help the stitches open up even more.
The Diamond Lattice Stitch featured in this free crochet summer scarf pattern makes lovely lightweight summer garments!
My next summer crochet secret is to use light and airy fibers. My choice for this scarf? The luxurious, beautiful Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball, in the Feng Shui gray colorway. I love that it goes with just about anything in my wardrobe!
The blend of cotton and acrylic is lightweight, durable, and breathable. Even better, this yarn has a slight halo that allows it to act as a worsted weight, even though the base fiber is smaller.
Can you see the halo in this super close-up photo?
Finding the Best Deals on Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball Yarn
Now, about 90% of the time, the Lion Brand Yarn Website has the best yarn prices for their yarns. If I need it right away, I’ll order through them.
But, I’m going to let you in on two of my secrets for finding Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball Yarn at great prices.
First, you should always check if there are any great Michael’s coupons for yarn available. (Michael’s is one of my favorite yarn shops!) You can score some great deals there!
