Daisy-Chain Scarf

This scarf was made from vintage tapestry yarns in five shades of green found at a thrift store. It would be fun out of most any yarn, even using a variety of textures and colors.

Make 30 or more Five-Petal Crocheted Flowers for desired length of scarf.

Stitch flowers end-to-end, alternating attachment at third or fouth petal. (See photo.)

Five Petal Crocheted Flower

With desired yarn and appropriate size crochet hook (ie: worsted and size G, etc.), chain 5 and join with sl st to first chain to form ring.

Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as 1 dc) and work 15 dc into the ring, sl st to beginning chain.

Round 2: *Ch 3, skip 2 dc, sl st into next dc: repeat from * 4 more times ending in last stitch in base of beginning chain. (You now have five chained loops.)

Round 3: In each Ch 3 space work 1sc, 3 dc, 1 sc: join with a sl st to first sc.

End yarn, leaving a tail for joining. Weave in all ends.
