Note: Scarf is crocheted as a lengthwise rectangle and ruffles are added to either end. Blossom is sewed on at the end (see next section for blossom instructions)
Note: If you don't want to crochet a long chain, try the foundation double crochet stitch instead.
Row 1: In the fourth ch from the hook, work a dc. Work a dc in each ch across.
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work a dc in each st across, and in the top st of the t-ch at the end of the row.
Row 3: Repeat row 2

Row 5: Ch 3 and turn. Work a dc in the first 20 sts, then ch 10. skip 10 sts, then work a dc in each of the remaining sts.

Row 8: Repeat row 2, and fasten off.
Instructions for Ruffled Edges:
Row 1: Tie yarn into corner of one of the scarf ends and ch 3. Work a dc in the same space. Work 2 dc in each space across. (Note: On this row spaces are formed from the posts of each dc when scarf was worked lengthwise)
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work a dc in first st, then 2 dc in each st across. Work 2 dc in t-ch.
Repeat row 2 twice more and fasten off.
Repeat ruffle for other end of scarf.
Instructions for Blossom:
Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work 2 dc. Work 3 dc in each ch across.
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work 2 dc in the first st. Work 3 dc in each st across and 3 dc in t-ch. Fasten off.
Blossom will begin to coil as you work. Following this natural coil, keep tails intact and use them to stitch flower together with a tapestry needle. Do not weave tails in yet and proceed to assembly instructions below.
Using a piece of matching yarn, sew blossom to scarf just to the left of the keyhole area. Weave in all ends.
Happy crocheting lovelies!
