I recently had the pleasure of designing a new scarf pattern for a family member. It needed to be a warm weather ‘fashion’ scarf and unlike more of my cold weather accessories, I wanted it to be ‘dainty’. After browsing the yarn section, I decided to choose a yarn that I have not worked with before, Paton’s Lace Sequin in #37707 Ruby, since red is Mary Jo’s favorite color. Isn’t it a beautiful color of yarn?
Here are the specifications on Paton’s Lace from the Yarnspirations website:
26 sts – 32 = 4″(10 cm)
24 sc – 26 rows = 4″(10 cm)
3.50 mm, US – 4
3.50 mm, US – E/4
I loved the stitch definition and the drape that I achieved in this scarf.
I used a G hook (4 mm), as I wanted the design to be a bit ‘lacey’ without the double crochets looking too ‘holey’. The 4mm hook worked well to achieve the look and drape I was going for.
When crocheting with Lace Sequin yarn, you should try to be careful that you don’t need to rip out too many stitches (frogging). The yarn has a mohair quality to it and sometimes crochet stitches and the small sequins got ‘stuck’ while I was trying to frog a row. But other than that, I had no problems with crocheting with this yarn.
I would recommend this yarn to anyone who want to make something pretty and lacey with just a bit of ‘bling’ to it!
