Fast and lacey is what you get with Crochet Shawls and Scarves. Use a good quality yarn and the garment will be a treasure forever!!
A simple pattern that looks complicated.
This pattern lends itself to many weights and types of yarns. Because you don't need to count rows or keep track of stitches, this pattern lends itself to perfectly for traveling or commuting, or visiting with the girls.
Sample was done in Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb, 2 hanks (410yds) and a 4.5 crochet hook.
But this pattern has also been sampled in many yarns in the store. The key is to use a larger hook than normal to get the soft flowing drape.

The Arches Cowl is a true moebius, started by putting a 180 degree twist in the first round of single crochet. It’s the perfect size to wear long and loose, or to twist a second time to wear it close about your neck. Choose a soft yarn for comfort. The stitch pattern shows off yarns with a long color repeat nicely but any sport weight yarn will do. If you want to make it wider simply buy more yarn and keep repeating the two-round stitch pattern – it’s that simple!
We like how Mary Beth has used different colors in her project. Crochet this in white to wear over your little black dress. How about in black sequins? Use a long-color-run yarn to get the color changes without having to buy multiple colors or yarn. Or simply use this pattern as a stash buster!
Pattern calls for 500 yds of sport weight yarn. I suggest Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport for a light weight scarf. Go with tonals such as Avondale, Buckingham Palace or go wild with Circus or Rainbow! On a budget? It won't feel like it if you crochet it up in Cascade 220 Sport!
Suggested hook size is G (4mm).
