Crochet for the Cure

There are still a few days to knit and/or crochet for Susan G. Komen's Foundation, "Knit for the Cure." You can read about it here.
I try to donate at least one scarf every year. My closest drop-off shop is Wild Fiber in Santa Monica.
This year, I used some Cascade 220 Superwash Wool in Bubblegum Pink (#901) and crocheted a short scarf using this openwork and lace crochet pattern. I really like the pattern and will be using it again on other pieces.

You can make any small item...a hat, scarf, cowl, hand-warmers, gloves, mittens, headband...anything. All profits from sales will benefit breast cancer research.

gorgeous pattern and colour. thought I might do my grand niece a cardigan with it, so looked at pattern, but I don't have any idea how to follow the chart. :(( any clues?

Hi Enid,
Following a chart is easy once you know what each symbol stands for.
The little circles are chain stitches, the longer lines with cross-hatches are double crochet stitches and the X's are single crochet stitches. The lines with arrows along the "diamond" sections show the direction you should be crocheting. Give it a try!

I love this pattern. Is it true what they say...it's like riding a bicycle...and you never forget how?
I have not crochetted in years! I think I just need to try again.
