Another Flower Scarf

Because I'm in love with flowers and scarves in particular, I decided to make another scarf similar to the chain scarf, but with a solid scarf portion.  What do you think? I love it because it can be worn loosely or up close to your neck easily.

Tie a knot right under where you want the flower to stay!
To make this scarf, you will begin the same way as the Flower Chain Scarf.

Flower Scarf #2

Stitches
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet (scs = single crochets)
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet


Flower:

Chain 15.  Sl st to close chain.

Row 1:  SC over ring 25 times. Sl st in top of 1st SC.

Row 2:  Chain 3. Skip 1 stitch and SC in next stitch. Repeat until you reach first chain.

Row 3:  Sc into loop of first chain 3. In same loop, 1 HDC, 2 DC, 1 HDC, 1 SC. Repeat in each loop around (SC, HDC, 2 DC, HDC, SC).  .

Row 4: Working behind Row 3, insert hook from BACK to front, around the post and into the next hole from front to back. Yo and pull thru both holes and SC.  *Chain 4 and SC around next post. Repeat from * around/behind the first row of petals. Finish with slip stitch in 1st chain.

Row 5: In first loop, SC, HDC, 3 DC, HDC, SC. Repeat in each loop around. Slip stitch in first SC to finish row.

Optional:  Repeat rows 4 and 5. Flower complete!

Now, let's start the scarf part!  Slip stitch down along the posts to original ring. You should be at the back of the flower. 

*Note: The first two rows of the scarf portion should be in the same color as the flower so that it does not show through.

Row 1: Single crochet in each of the next 10 stitches along ring.  Chain 1, turn.

Row 2: SC in same stitch and in next 9 spaces across  If you plan to switch colors, fasten off.

Row 3: Join your new yarn and and chain 2.  DC in each of the 10 spaces.  Chain 3 and turn..

Row 4-60: Repeat row 3.  If you would like your scarf (or belt!) longer or shorter, you can increase or decrease your rows of DCs. 

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Enjoy!!

  1. I LOVE this. I'm not a scarf person at all, but this may have converted me.

  3. I myself saw some of these at a craft fair not that long ago and they wanted $25 for them. I have been searching for some kind of pattern and was about to just work up the flower and figure out how to attach the scarf portion whether it be this style or the chain style scarf. I am so grateful I stumbled on to your blog. This will make my life easier. Thank you!!!!!!
