Grid Lace Scarf Patterns

- Grid Lace Scarf #1: This version is the lightest and laciest; it's also my favorite of the 3. The stitches lean a little to one side, which does not bother me, but I encourage you to look closely at the photos before making this project in case this would not be to your liking.
- Grid Lace Scarf #2: In this version of the pattern, the leaning has been corrected. The lace pattern is a little denser, and the scarf is a... little heavier. A bonus for those of you who need your scarves to be warm: this one should hold in a little more heat than the first version.
- Grid Lace Scarf #3: This is a two-color version that's interesting to crochet thanks to all the color changes.
