I had accidentally published this crochet scarf pattern yesterday while editing it. I apologize if any emails were accidentally sent to whoever is following me.
This crochet scarf is designed with the same 3D stitch as the Falling petals Afghan, The Rose Petals Scarf! All of you loved the stitch, so I decided to design another project with it. I hope you like it.
This one is a triangle scarf. If anyone is interested in an infinity scarf in the same stitch pattern, just let me know. I will be happy to write it up.
The Design Process
I did not want to make a regular scarf with this stitch as I thought it could look like a blanket wrapped around your neck. So I decided to go for a triangle scarf on which the texture would look great.
Converting the stitch pattern into a triangle wasn’t that hard but once my triangle grew, I hit a roadblock. It was getting too long but not wide enough to wrap around your neck.
I first thought I might have to turn it into a triangle cowl but then it struck me! You will find out how I worked around this when you make the scarf :). Enjoy!

fpdc-front post double crochet
V st: (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) worked into the same st.
Shell St: (3 dc, ch 2, 3dc) worked into the same ch-2 space.
Front post double crochet (fpdc): You can see a tutorial here.
Row 1: Ch 5 (counts as 1 dc+2 ch here), 1 dc in the 5th ch from hook. ——1 V-st
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc here and throughout), shell into the ch space of the V-st, 1 dc into the same ch space.——–1 Shell+ 2 dc
Note: For the following V- st rows, instead of working a beginning ch 3 for a dc, a ch 4 is worked as that seemed better for the drape of the scarf.
Row 3: Ch 6( counts as 1 dc and ch 2 here and throughout), 1 dc in the same st as ch 6 (first V-st made), 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the shell, 1 V-st on top of beginning ch-3, turn. ——-3 V-sts
Row 4: Ch 3 (counts as a dc here and throughout), shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc (the second leg of the V-st), 1 fpdc in the next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next 2 dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 more dc into the same ch-2 space, turn.——– 3 Shells
Row 5: Ch 6, 1 dc in the same st as ch 6 ( first V-st made), 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the next shell and each shell across to end, 1 V-st on top of beginning ch-3. You will be skipping a lot of stitches to work your V’s and that is what makes your shell stitches pop and look like petals.———5 V-sts
Row 6: Ch 3, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc (the second leg of the V-st), *(1 fpdc in the next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc), repeat from * until 1 V-st is left, 1 fpdc in next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 more dc into the same ch-2 space, turn.——– 5 Shells
Repeat Rows 5 and 6 until you have completed 17 shell rows or total 34 rows. The number of V-sts and shells will increase by 2 every row.
Note: In the next row, you will add an extension to both ends of the triangle. This is to add to the width of the triangle without adding more height.
Row 35: Ch 14, 1 dc in 7th ch from hook (1 V-st made), sk 3 ch, V- st in next ch, sk 3 ch, 1 V-st in the first dc, 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the next shell and each shell across to end, 1 dc on top of beginning ch-3, ch 5, sl st to the top of the beginning ch-3 at the same point where your worked the dc, see pic 7 above ( a V-st completed with working yarn at base of the V-st), ch 14, turn, work 1 dc in 7th ch from hook (1 V-st made), sk 3 ch, V- st in next ch, sk 3 ch, sl st to the top of the ch-3 of the next V-st (Pic 8), do not turn, fasten off.———39 V-sts
Row 36: Working on the same side, sl st into the first V-st, ch 3 (counts as a dc), shell in ch-space of the V-st, 1 fpdc in next dc, *(1 fpdc in the next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 fpdc in the next dc), repeat from * until 1 V-st is left, 1 fpdc in next dc, shell in the next ch-2 space, 1 more dc into the same ch-2 space, turn. ———-39 shells
Repeat Rows 35 and 36 one more time. ——45 shells
Row 39: Ch 3, 1 V-st in the ch-2 space of the next shell and each shell across to end, 1 dc on top of beginning ch 3.——–45 V-sts +2 dc
Row 40(Last Row): ch 1, 1 sc in the same st as ch 1, 4 sc into the ch-2 space of each V-st across to end, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-3, fasten off.
Making the Tassels
2. Attach the tassels to the three corners. Use the tails left to tie them on to the scarf, pull the tails through the tassel and then trim it to the size of the rest of the strands.

It’s really a wonderful pattern, easy to do. But even with the extensions on both sides I find it way to small :(

Love your work and appreciate being able to download the instructions. However, the pictures connected to the various steps in the pattern do NOT copy. I realize you would rather I pay for the pattern, but I'm a reasonably competent crocheter, and crochet for my church's Prayer Shawl Committee, and can't justify the purchase. I do send the crocheters to your site,

I followed this note: "Note: For the following V- st rows, instead of working a beginning ch 3 for a dc, a ch 4 is worked as that seemed better for the drape of the scarf." But if you end with a dc, than this side is not as loose as the other side. I found out at row 11, started from the beginning and then end the V-st rows with a trc (tripple crochet). Now both sides are the same.

Could this be made into a shawl by just continuing the pattern and not adding the extensions?
