1. Worsted weight yarn. I used color Colonial Blue from Vanna’s Choice.
2. Hook- I (5.5 mm)
3. Yarn needle for weaving in the yarn tails
4. One Crocodile Clip or big Safety pin for attaching the flower
One size fits all women. The scarf is 11 1/2 inches wide and 70 inches long.
After working a few rows check the width of the scarf to see if it meets the width specified and adjust hook size accordingly. You can make your scarf as long or short as you want by adjusting the number of rows.
Around 440 Yards. I used about 2 ½ skeins of Vanna’s choice.
The pattern is in standard American terms.
dc- double crochet
sc- single crochet
sl st- slip stitch
1. Ch sp: The gap under a chain loop. When asked to work into a ch sp, insert the hook not into the chains but the space under the chain loop. Ch-2 sp means the space under a ch-2 loop and ch-4 sp means the space under a ch-4 loop.
2. Dc3tog: * (Wrap the yarn around the hook and insert into the ch-space, yarn over and pull through 2 loops), repeat from * a total of 3 times to get 4 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all the 4 loops.———dc3tog complete
Note: The scarf is worked width-wise and it grows in length as you work each row.
Ch 45 (multiple of 8 +5)
Row 1: 1 sc in 7th ch from hook ( 6 chains count as 1 skipped ch, 1 dc and ch 2), *(ch 4, skip next 3 chs, 1 sc in next ch), repeat from * till 2 chains are left, ch 2, skip next ch, 1 dc in last ch. Turn.
Row 2 (Right Side): Ch 1, 1 sc in first dc, ch 3, skip first ch sp, dc3tog in next ch sp, * (ch 3, sc in next ch sp, ch 3, dc3tog in next ch sp ), repeat from * until the last ch sp is left, ch 3, skip 2 ch on the last ch loop and sc in next ch. Turn.——- 5 dc3tog
Row 3: Ch 5( counts as 1st dc and ch 2, here and throughout), sc in first ch sp, *(ch4, 1 sc in next ch sp), repeat from * to last ch sp, ch2, dc in last sc. Turn.
Row 4: Ch 1, sc in first dc, ch 4, skip first ch-2 sp, sc in next ch-4 sp, *(ch 3, dc3tog in next ch-sp, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch sp), repeat from * until the last ch sp is left , ch 4, skip 2 ch on the last ch-loop, sc in next ch. Turn.———–4 dc3tog
Row 5: Ch 5, sc in first ch sp, *(ch4, 1 sc in next ch sp), repeat from * to last ch sp, ch2, dc in last sc. Turn.
Repeat rows 2-5. Check the width of the scarf to see if it meets the width specified after 2 repeats of rows 2-5.
Repeat rows 2-5 till your scarf measures 70 inches and you end in Row 2. Do not fasten off.
Joining the Ends
Now match the ends of the scarf with the right sides touching together, the last row should be on top facing you. Align the ch-3 loops of both the layers. Sl st through the corner of both the layers, then working only through the front layer (last round), sl st in each ch and st till you cross over the dc3tog and reach the first ch of the ch-3 loop, catching both the layers sl st into the next ch and the middle ch of the ch-loop from the back layer to join them, then again sl st along the front layer only till you reach the middle of the next ch-3 loop, sl st the middle chains of both the layers together. Continue until end and sl st the corners together. Fasten off and weave in any tails left.
Leaving a long tail, ch 79, 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 2 hdc in next 25 chains, 2 dc in next 25, 2 tr in next 25, 1 hdc in last 2 st. Fasten off. Roll the flower and sew behind using the tails. Take care to catch all the layers when inserting the needle. You might have to go across the base a few times. Sew on a crocodile clip or safety pin to the back of the flower to make it removable.
