Off the hook: cranberry red scarf

Here's a scarf I crocheted from new yarn. It's Plymouth's Encore, a blend of wool and acrylic. This is my go-to yarn for when I want something nicer than plain acrylic, but still want the item to be easy to care for. I used Deborah Hedges' "Lattice Scarf" pattern, which my current go-to pattern for crocheted scarves. This is the 5th one I've made from this pattern. After the 1st set-up row, you just repeat row 2 till you get the length you want. This example used 2 skeins of Encore.

When I saw this rich cranberry red, I thought this would be a perfect color for my sister-in-law to wear. I gave it to her at our family's New Year's Eve gathering. Based on the weather we've been having lately in North Carolina, I think she'll have a lot of use for a warm scarf.

Love the scarf. The color is great. Did you get the pattern off the internet or in a book?
