Lace crochet

In last week’s Woman’s Weekly was a pattern for a crocheted sleeveless cardigan. I like it very much, especially the pattern for the waistband. I’m intending to crochet myself a scarf one day with this pattern (50-chain width).

Here’s the pattern for the waistband:

Make a 146 (178) (194) ch

(You can use any width, as long as the total of chains is divisable by 16, + 2 extra)

On the photo I’ve made a dc border on the foundation row as well (as 13th row) and a tr border plus another dc border will follow too (as 14th and 15th row).

When you want to print this pattern, the best is to copy the text and paste it in your text program.
Enjoy it.
