The Little Miss Flower Scarf is a happy and colorful scarf to make for your little flower. Whimsical stripes are crocheted lengthwise and edged with a lovely scallop. A cluster of roses and a leaf finishes off the scarf for an added touch of fun.

Instructions for Scarf:
Note: Each color stripe is made of two rows.
Foundation (Color A): Make a chain as long as you'd like your scarf to be. In the second chain from the hook, work a sc. Work a sc in each ch to the end of the row.
Row 1 (Color A): Ch 1 and turn. Sc in first st and in each st to the end of the row.
Switch colors to color B and repeat row 1 two more times. Keep alternating colors A and B, working two rows for each color stripe. Scarf shown has five color stripes, with each stripe having two rows. However, if you'd like your scarf wider, simply work more rows making sure that each stripe is two rows.
Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain.
Round 1: Tie on yarn for edging (color C) in one of the corners. Work a sc in each stitch all the way around the scarf. Join with a sl st to close.
Note: On each end of the scarf, I worked each single crochet in the spaces (versus stitches) because the scarf was worked lengthwise.
Round 2: Beginning in one of the corners (if you are not in a corner when you finish round 1, just slip stitch over to a corner). Ch 3, then work 4 dc all in the same st. Work a sl st in the next st, then skip the next st. In the next st, work 3 dc. Continue in this sequence, working a sl st, then skipping the next st, then 3 dc in the next st (except at each corner, work 5 dc) At the end of the round, on the last stitch you work, work a slip st in the same st to finish off that last scallop. Fasten off and weave in any ends.
Instructions for Large Flower:
With color A, ch 14. Work a dc in the 4th ch from the hook, then 2 more dc in the same ch. Work 3 dc in each ch to the end of the row.
Instructions for Small Flower:
With color B, ch 8. Work a dc in the 4th ch from the hook, then 2 more dc in the same ch. Work 3 dc in each ch to the end of the row.
Instructions for Leaf:
With color C, ch 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: In the center of the ring, work 6 dc, 4 sc, 1 tr, 4 sc. Join with a slip stitch to close leaf and fasten off.
Assembly and Finishing:
Coil roses and using ends, stitch roses together with tapestry/yarn needle. Attach roses and leaf to scarf as shown using remaining ends to attach them securely to the scarf. Weave in any ends that remain.
