Hello Hello, fellow craftsters!!
I've been absent from Craftster for awhile, but since the last time I posted re-learned how to crochet officially!! and I made up a pattern for neck warmer while I was practicing that has become rather popular at my office since I started handing the extras around.
Here's a pretty picture:
These take me about 1.5 to 3 hours depending on yarn weight and gauge (the smaller/lighter the yarn, the longer it takes)
And here's the pattern...Stuff you need:
¾ a skein of yarn
One bead with a large hole drilled in it (can be pre-bought or bored out yourself)
1 large button
1 crochet hook
1 tapestry needleImportant things to remember:
1. Gauge is not important
2. Hook and yarn choice determine width of scarfSCARF:
You will crochet 3 sections, do not FO at end of each sectionSection 1
Chain 9, sc into 2nd stitch from the hook , sc in all remaining ch, ch1 and turn
Repeat until section 1 is 2 inches tallSection 2
Chain 4 and turn, tr into 2nd stitch from end of row, tr until end of row until all sc are stitched into.
Chain 4 and turn, tr into the second tr in the row below, tr into all tr in the row below. Repeat until desired lengthSection 3
Chain 1 and turn, Sc into all stitches in the row
Repeat until the section is 3 inches tall (4 if you are using a heavier weight yarn), FO and weave in tailsFLOWER:

Instead of spreading out the spiral as much as in the instructions, I piled the resulting rows together to make a fluffy flower. Stitch flower together with 1 tail end as instructed by stitch diva. DO NOT CUT TAIL OFF, you will still need it to complete the flower attachment on the scarf.FINISHING:
Attach flower to 3 side of the scarflette by threading the bead onto one of the tails of your flower and threading it through the center of the flower to the back, all the way through the scarf. Add your button at this point and secure with the remaining tail end. Use the 2nd tail to more securely fashion the flower to the larger side of the scarf.
PM me if you have any questions - and please post a picture if you make one!
