Flower scarf pattern

I made several of these flowers then put the project by for a while and had great difficulty working out what I’d done – I had to unpick quite a bit to reverse-engineer it. So I thought I should type it up in case I want to do it again.

Pattern is in US terms and I used a 4.5 hook.

Flower scarf

Chain four, slip stitch into first chain to form circle.

Chain three, nine dc into circle.

Cut and end yarn. Restart with new length of yarn in same colour, five chain into any of dc in previous row. (If you don’t end yarn and restart it’s difficult to get the dc in the next row evenly spaced.)

DC into next dc. Chain 2, dc into next dc, chain 2 and repeat round the circle – 10 dc in total, counting first 3 chain as one dc.

Slipstitch to join row. Into each gap, 1 sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, 1 hdc (this is deliberately asymmetrical).

Fasten off first colour. Join next colour in any gap between the ten petals. Chain 5, sc into next gap, chain 5, sc into next gap and repeat round circle. SC in gap to end.

Into each chain-five space, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 treble, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc (seven stitches in total). Slipstitch and fasten off.

Sew in ends.

To make a scarf, I made 18 using two alternating colours and sewed them together. This made a scarf 186 cm long, wch is probably longer than needed. Each flower is 10-11cm wide, depending on stretch. I used acrylic for this (because I couldn’t find colours I liked in posher yarns).

I will link this from Ravelry.
