New Crochet Pattern: Floral Peony Scarf

NEW! Now available on my Etsy store: www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com 

The Floral Peony Scarf has a wonderful modern style and textured base with floral peonies and leaves adorning this design adding class and style to any wardrobe. Floral Blossoms finish off the design on the tip of the scarf to add that finishing touch. The blossoms represent new beginnings like the blossoms in spring reminding us of new and beautiful moments to come. A floral accented scarf for winter that can carry you through the cooler days of spring and fall.

Designed with 1 skein of sock/fingerling weight yarn for the solid coloured scarf or add a touch of colour with other yarns. If you want to make the flowers and leaves in different colours as shown in the gray scarf you will need to add more yarn like a mini skein or yarn from your yarn stash. Peony flowers are so many different hues of white, light pink to dark pink and even orange. There are other Floral Peony scarf designs and other Floral scarf patterns on my Etsy store, Ravelry and on LoveCrafts. See links at the bottom of the page.

SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock yarn used in the photos will be available soon on my Etsy store.

This design is also available in an ebook Floral Botanical Scarf Crochet Pattern Collection shown below for a discount only on my Etsy store. You save $8.00 by purchasing the collection together.
