Larksfoot Crochet Scarf
This is a free larksfoot crochet pattern for a scarf. The Larksfoot stitch is a very common crochet stitch pattern. I found it in one of my stitch guide books and decided to make a scarf with it. The scarf is crocheted with 2 different yarn types: A tweed yarn and a mohair yarn. The more rigid tweed makes the pattern stay in place and the mohair yarn gives the scarf a very comfy and soft appearance.

2 skeins Grignasco, Kid Silk Five, 75% super kid mohair, 25% silk, 25g – 125 m/137 yards, red: Shade #721 Plum.
