New scarf project and a pattern :)

Good morning my friend,

How are you today?

I was so inspired two days ago after seeing the lovely post of Lucy about her new shawl project…so inspired that I took my hook right away and tried the pattern she used…

The pattern is lovely but I wanted to make a long scarf , something like a long neck warmer you know what I mean? and this pattern was kind of “bold” for a scarf…I wanted something “lighter” (Is that a word?)

So, I took an old crochet magazine and transformed my way a pattern made originally for a doily…and I loved it so much……so much…that I crocheted a flower and after another flower etc…with leftover yarns….

…so much that I made right away a graphic pattern for the modified version of the original pattern…

 

…so much that I want to continue making a long series of flowers to make a very long scarf I can wrap it two or three times  around my neck…

so? what do you think? Do you want to join in? You can make a “light” shawl with this pattern too or some coasters maybe :) I have to leave you now and return to my new project :) (so excited about it!!!!!!!!!)

Have a beautiful week end!

Angie

    Good evening Angie! Great work! I saw also Lucie’s crochet and I was thinking a lighter version would be nice…not to have the flowers so tight together. You make it perfect – it’s going to be adorable! Thank you so much for having the time to make a pattern!
    Sunny weekend! xxx Teje

  14. 'me' says:

  15. pixie says:

    **This, i have got to try, thankyou for sharing such a lovely pattern. Pixie.

  16. Aisyah Helga says:

    Your scarf looks beautiful, Angie! So colorful!

  17. Pati from London says:

    What a fantastic adaptation. I think Lucy’s one is very nice and perhaps is good for her shawl but yours is nicer for a scarf, it’s lighter and more appropriate for folding it around your neck more than once. Thanks for your pattern once again. You make lovely things!! x Pati

  18. Saritha says:

    I love how your scarf looks so far!!So bright and cheerful and pretty!!

  19. allison says:

  20. Victoria says:

    I would love to know how you make those graphic patterns if you wouldn’t mind sharing. Do you have specialist software?

    • Sucrette says:

      Thank you all for those wonderful comments :)

      Victoria, to make those graphic patterns I use a software called “Corel draw” It is a software for graphic design I learned at college…

      kisses!

  21. Gillian says:

    Oh it is just beautiful!!!

    Hello Angie! I’ve just tried your pattern and I simply loved it! It’s a pity most of my stash are pastel colours… I will have to wait until I get vibrant ones.

    I love this! I lwould also love to have the pattern in written words. Thanks!

  36. Sarah says:

    Beautiful flowers!!! I tried to make one today, but it didn’t work! I, too, would love the pattern in written words–maybe I’m following the pattern wrong? Thank you!

  44. JENNY FOXCROFT says:

    I absolutely love this pattern and would really love to use it to make a shawl/comforter for my daughter to take off to University when she goes. Unfortunately, I can’t understand the graphic pattern as I am a novice. Would you be able to add written instructions too please?
    Many thanks

    I posted a picture of your scarf on my facebook and have had many people request a written copy of the motif. I hope I have your permission to translate the graph to a written pattern and to post on my FB.

    Hello Angie, it’s just so lovely to see such inspiring work! 8 came across your blog purely accidentally lol. Still can’t work out how…Hehehe ☺️
    I have a question for you…. I’m fairly new to crochet, and I would very much like to know how you join as you go with your lovely flower scarf/wrap? I can’t work out how, if you start a flower from the middle. I just can’t work this out in my head, I’m confused. There is so much that I would love to learn and there is no one to ask or show me here. Is there a way that you perhaps could explain? Thank you for sharing your beautiful works. Regards Moira

  49. Maschelle Mashburn says:

    I adore your pattern for this scarf! I can’t wait to try it, as I’ve always wanted to make a scarf or shawl out of the “heavier motif”, but just don’t have the skills to get it right so far. I’ve ended up with a ton of large, colorful flower “doilies” from all of my failed flower motifs. By failed, I mean mistakes relating to the number of petals ( intending to make 12-petaled motifs but ended up with 11 petals far too often. I also didn’t know the join as you go concept yet, and tried to join all the motifs at the petal tips like they were squares or hexagons..sigh…epic fail and I felt like crying as I’d worked so hard designing each flower as a unique, heavily detailed and customized work of love. Beginner’s mistake on a huge scale. Now, here you have patterned a motif that I believe I CAN manage to join as I go! I’m very hopeful! Thank you so much! P.S. love your other projects I’m seeing in the sidebar and am very eager to read more posts! I’m glad other bloggers had your site listed as one of their faves.

    I’ve just found this and think, in a finer yarn or thread and a smaller hook, this may make a charming pair of earrings or necklace…..going to give it a try
