The Sunflowers Scarf Pattern - Inspired by Van Gogh's famous painting... Including my first video tutorial!


Inspired by Van Gogh's famous painting, the Sunflowers scarf is made from 100% new wool making it super cosy for autumn and winter.  Sunflowers always make me feel so happy, I love the cheery brightness of the petals and the intricate honeycomb effect of the seed head.  I used 12 Sunflower Granny Squares joined together, with big poofy tassels at the ends.  Treat yourself or make a last minute gift for someone you love.





As always an ad free pdf version of this pattern is available in my online stores, thank you for helping to support my work...

Abbreviations US Terms (UK Conversion)

tr - treble crochet (double treble crochet)
hdc - half double crochet (half treble crochet)
ch - chain
st(s) - stitch(es)

ps - puff stitch
yo - yarn over
sk - skip


About the yarn:  Drops Alaska is a 100% new wool.  Each 50g ball contains approx. 77 yds (70 m) and is hand wash only

Special Stitches

Beginning cluster: ch2, [Yo, insert hook into st and pull up a loop, yo pull through 2 loops] x3, yo pull through all loops, ch1 to lock in place.

Cluster: [Yo, insert hook into st and pull up a loop, yo pull through 2 loops] x4, yo pull through all loops, ch1 to lock in place.

Puff stitch: [Yo, insert hook into st and pull up a long loop] x4, yo pull through all loops, ch1 to secure puff.

Other notes:  US terms throughout.  When substituting yarn be sure to choose one with a similar gauge.  When starting the first ps, pull up a loop to the height of the st, this looks more seamless than chaining 2 to start.  Squares may be blocked individually before joining, or alternatively you may block the finished scarf.

Join two squares together as follows-

With right sides facing and C, join with a sl st in top right corner sp.  Working through both squares simultaneously, sc each st together across the square, ending with a sc in top left corner sp.  Fasten off.  Continue to join all remaining squares to form scarf. 





Work a border of single crochet around the entire scarf as follows - Join C with sl st to any st on side of scarf, ch1, sc in same st, sc in each st around scarf and [sc, ch1, sc] in each corner sp, join with sl st to 1st sc.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

 

Tassels

 

Using remaining C and tassel guide, make 4 tassels and attach to each corner at the ends of the scarf.  Use 50 wraps per tassel.
