I’m super excited to share the latest #CbyDH pattern! The Aleteo Scarf. This crochet pattern is very easy and is a great introduction to lace crochet. The pattern includes written instructions as well as a chart and works up really quick. I made the sample in a couple hours. It even includes blocking instructions and photos.
Did you know? Aleteo is Spanish for “flutter”.
While I was taking photos of the sample scarf, a baby cardinal was taking her first flight. The nest was located in the bushes next to my front porch. All spring the parents guarded the nest. When I set up my camera and white board for the photos I had no idea what was about to happen. The baby was ready to take her first flight. She flew back and forth over my head searching for a safe place to land. I could feel the flutter of her wings as she passed above me. What fun it was to witness the beauty of nature up close.
You can work this scarf in yarn weights from 1 to 3 (fingering to dk). And you can easily adjust the length and/or number of stitches.
