Pretty Pink Flowers Scarf


I am just loving this scarf.  If you are a fast crocheter, wouldn't this make a great Valentine's gift?  Or if it takes you a bit longer to finish a project, how about a Mother's Day gift?  This pattern works up very quickly.

So, on with it.  Yarn.  I used one skein of Red Heart super saver yarn (7 oz./364 yds.) and made this scarf and a coordinating hat which I will post next week.

Use hook J.

Chain 24.
R1 . Sc in second stitch from hook and each stitch across. (23 sc)
R2.  Ch 4, turn.  Skip first st, tr in next 6 st's.  Ch 4,* yarn over twice, insert hook in 4'th ch from hook, draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through two loops on hook, yarn over and draw through two loops on hook*, repeat once. (3 loops remain on hook).  Skip next two st's, *yarn over twice and insert hook in next st,, draw up a loop. Yarn over and draw through two loops on hook, yarn over and draw throug two loops on hook*, repeat twice more (6 loops remain on hook).  Skip next three st's, repeat between second set *, 9 loops remain on hook.  Yarn over and draw through all 9 loops.  Ch 4, repeat between first set of *, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.  Skip next two st's, tr in next st and in remaining 6 st's.
R3.  Ch 4 ,turn. skip first st, tr in next 6 st's.  Ch 2, [ *yarn over twice and insert hook into middle of flower started on previous row, draw up a loop. Yarn over and draw through two loops on hook, yarn over and draw through two loops on hook*, repeat 2 more times. (4 loops remain on hook) Yarn over and draw through all 4 loops.] Ch 3.  Repeat between brackets.  Ch 2, tr in next st and in remaining 6 st's.
R4.  Ch 3, turn.  Skip first st, dc in next 6 st's. Sc 2 in ch 2 space, 1 sc in tip of petal, 3 sc in ch 3 space, 1 sc in tip of petal, 2 sc in ch 2 sp.  Dc in next 7 st's.
Repeat R2-4 until scarf is nearly 5' long, about 26 times.
Repeat R2.
Repeat R3.
Final Row.  Ch 1, turn. Skip first st and sc in each remaining st and ch space for a total of 23 sc.
Fringe.  Cut 46-47 pieces of yarn about 10" long. To make fringe, fold one piece of yarn in half, draw hook through st, catch loop of yarn and pull through stitch.  Then pull the two ends of yarn piece (opposite of loop side) through loop and pull tight.  Repeat in each st on both ends of the scarf. Trim ends of fringe even if needed.  (I let my starting and ending piece of yarn be part of the fringe and pulled it through the loop along with the fringe.)

And there you have it!  It's really not as difficult as it sounds, it's actually very easy once you work a flower and can see what you are doing.  If you get stuck, let me know and I will try to help.

One more picture just because I love this scarf so much. :)
