Scarf Season

November 17, 2011

For a couple years I had been trying to make a new scarf variation for each of the female family members as Christmas gifts. Last year I fell short but I've been looking at some lately and here's a few that caught my eye.

It has a pattern here but its in another language. Does anyone know how to make the crochet flowers? Is there an easy way? I don't think I could make one let alone seven if it meant spending 30 minutes a flower. But this one is probably my fav.


Also, really liking something like this. And it might be more practical. Could make from recycled sweaters.

This is actually pretty funny. I like. Would also work with a regular scarf.

I wonder how this would look using wool felt instead of crochet. Would make my life a lot easier.

Any scarves you've had an eye on making?

Try looking on you tube for a tutorial on how to crochet flowers. That is my favorite too.

Here's a great pattern for those flowers you like for the first scarf:

Enjoy!

Love the flowers! It would probably take me a long time to make- part of the reason I picked up sewing. :)

If you have any experience with crochet, the first scarf wouldn't be too complicated (you should be able to do few flowers in 30 min :) ). Here is my translation of the graph provided for the first pattern (http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/podaroknatka/view/233768/?page=2#preview)

Crochet Magic Loop with 6 single crochet;
next row - chain 2, cluster of 4 treble crochet*, chain 2, slip stitch into next single crochet of the Magic Loop. Repeat 5 more time for total of 6 petals, fasten off.

For following flowers, connect to the previous motif according to the provided graph.

* Cluster of 4 Treble crochet (the explanation may seem long, but once you start doing it, it goes fast) -

- Wrap yarn or thread around hook 2 times before beginning the stitch, insert hook in stitch, pull a loop through, wrap yarn over hook and draw through two loops, (there are now three loops remaining on the hook), yarn over hook and draw through two loops (leave remaining loop of the treble on the hook, which makes a total of two loops on the hook).
- Working in the same stitch, make a second treble (leave the last loop of this treble on the hook also). At this point, there are 3 loops on the hook.
- Working in the same stitch, make a third treble (leave the last loop of this treble on the hook also). At this point, there are 4 loops on the hook.
- Working in the same stitch, make a fourth treble (leave the last loop of this treble on the hook also). At this point, there are 5 loops on the hook.
- Wrap yarn or thread over the hook and pull a loop through the 5 remaining loops on the hook all at once. This completes the cluster.

I hope this helps someone. Thank you for the picture - i'll stash it in my 'ideas' - maybe next Christmas for the nieces :)

I think the little neck scarf is knitted from this pattern on Martha Stewart:

My friend made it -- it is cute!

I LOVE the floral ones...but, I'm afraid I wouldn't finish, just like the granny squares I started as a kid! :D Someone can make one for me, though!

Oh looove the mustache scarf!

Marianne said... Best Blogger Tips

I see you have several links to patterns for that first scarf. I've done a TON of those particular flowers and can attest that they are pretty quick to make up. (Just a few minutes per flower) I love the moustache one too. I'm tempted to make it (and I live in a warm climate!)

PS I think the last scarf would be much prettier in felted wool.

Abigail said... Best Blogger Tips

I like all of these but by far my favorite is the flowers. Then prob the mustache:). I just wore my monogram scarf the other day. They were always my favorite gift.

The last one could be really fun using wool felt! If you try it I'd love to see how it turns out! :) What a great handmade gift to give you family or friends!

I made a version of the second scarf for lots of my family and friends one year; it's very easy and quick! And people are always impressed by the way it slips through the loop.

I made several scarves like the second one for family and friends a few years ago. It's really fast and easy and people are always impressed with the way it loops through itself.

If you were going to make that little neck wrap out of a recycled sweater how would you go about it? I saw something similiar in store and thought the same thing. :)

The first scarf is crocheted with 'puff flowers'. The pattern is in Japanese and the diagrams are easy to follow. Here's a link to a tutorial for puff flowers:

@Sasha Wheatley

Thank you so much for the translation! These look exactly like the ones in the photo! I've been looking for the perfect scarf to go with the hat I made. I think I've found it! :)

There is a group on Ravelry for Japanese translations of patterns. I believe the first flower scarf is there. It takes a moment to sign up, but is free...then just join the group. Here are the links: Sign up:
