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.

Very pretty! I have some left over silk and alpaca yarn from a hat I just finished and this will be wonderful.

Thank you!

Hi - I love this, but as a very newbie crocheter, I can't find an explanation of "Sal st" - is this an abbreviation? (Sorry to ask dumb questions.)

Anne...thank you so much for asking. It's a typo!!! And you are the first one to notice it! It should be sl st (slip stitch). I'm so sorry for the error, and I hope to see your Daisy Chain soon!!

This is so pretty! Any yarn size suggestions? I'm a newbie and mine aren't coming out as pretty as yours. Practice makes perfect, right? :)

Well, I say, "Practice makes better!" :o) Thank you for your lovely comment. I used tapestry yarn for this one, but you could easily use other yarns. It would be a lot daintier in a sock-weight or warm and cozy in a fluffy bulky weight. Be sure to adjust the size of your hook according to the yarn you choose. I can't wait to see your version!
