Dainty Delicious Darling Scarf Pattern


Hello!  This is the pattern I used to create the Dainty Darling Scarf, but please note that this is to be used as a guide only. Be sure to adapt the number of chains in each round according to the weight and thickness of your chosen yarn. I used two strands of yarn to make the colourful flowers, and only one strand to create and join the squares. I furthermore joined each square to the next in 5 different places from corner to corner. This is a far cry from a professional chart and set of instructions, please give me a shout if you need any more help and I will do a photo tutorial too!

Round 1: Ch 6 and close to form ring
Round 2: 12 2Treble clusters with 5Ch between each
Round 3: Ch10 joined with sc into each Ch5 space of the previous round
Round 4: Ch8 joined with sc into each Ch10 space of the previous round
Round 5: Ch8 joined with sc into each Ch8 space of the previous round
Round 6: Create Square shape by crocheting 4 treble cluster, Ch10,  4 treble cluster into a Ch8 space (not clear from drawing) and Ch8 joined with sc into each Ch8 space of the previous round in the relevant spaces
  


I have seen many similar looking patterns captured in Japanese crochet books over the years and simply grabbed a hook and worked from mood and memory, creating my own, but certainly not unique version.



Heeeeeeelp?!

Craftsy published a tutorial titled "Understanding Crochet Diagrams, the Key to breaking the Code"

Slugs on the Refrigerator published and in depth article about "Reading Crochet Charts"



This is the same pattern in DK bamboo and a 4mm hook.
Here in rounds 4, 5 and 6, I hooked 5ch, 6ch and 8ch in stead of 8ch, 8ch, 8ch as in the square made out of lacy merino (scarf). Hope this makes sense!

Have a great week!

  2. I love this! What thickness yarn did you use and what needle size? Y-U-M-M-Y! Im going to hook it in a 4,5 mm needle with a bamboo yarn.I think it will show off the yarn perfectly

    1. Hi, I hooked with a 3mm and a very, very delicate merino lace weight. I have just added the bamboo version I also made and used a 4mm. You will need to adjust the number of chains according to the yarn, I indicated below the bamboo square the number of chains I used. Let me know how yours is coming out!

  6. I loved this one. It has given me courage to try scarier things. I tend to steer clear of them but not anymore.
