Sweet Summer Scarf

I have recently posted flowers with pointed petals that I have made following a tutorial that can be found here, written by Anabelia Craft Design. I used three colors that gave me the following combinations:

I must admit I had to think hard on how to place those flowers to form the Sweet Summer Scarf. For many days. As the flowers have five petals, it was like a puzzle for me. I actually had to lay them on a table and rearranged them in any possible ways I could think of.

Then I had to decide how to join them. More reflexion. It is the first time I am joining something that is not a square. My reflexion took me to Pinterest. I saw beautiful and intricate joining but decided that a basic chain stitch would be the safest for a first time.Sweet Summer Scarf - francenadeau.com

Once they were all joined, I realised that it would be best if I make some “joining” on the outside too. To create a straight border. More chain stitches.Sweet Summer Scarf - francenadeau.com

After, I crocheted a border of double crochets that looked like the petals, but in green. They looked like leaves. It was beautiful. But I ran out of green yarn some 10″ from the end. Well. That happens. I put the scarf down, to sleep on it. (I did not take any pictures, though.) A few days later, I undid the leaves. They were adding to much weight on the sides, anyway. I started on an other border. A much simple one, featuring picots. In the end, this border is more appropriate. It does not impair the lightness of the scarf.

The Sweet Summer Scarf is not very long: 108 cm / 42 1/2″. And not very wide, either: 18 cm / 7″. Just perfect for the shoulders of a five-years-old girl.
