Hello and happy Monday!
This is my newest pattern for a rose scarflette and if you are still lacking ideas for a nice and heartwarming last minute gift - this is it!
To make it you need worsted yarn - I used Austermann's Souflé (150 gr) and a 4 mm hook.
To make the rose:
Foundation chain: ch 55
Row 1: dc1 in the 4th ch from hook, next ch2, sk2 and dc1 in next st. Repeat this pattern to the end.
Row 2: ch1 and in the chain space work the following: sc1,hdc1, dc2,hdc1,sc1. Repeat this pattern for all the ch-spaces. Leave a really long tail that you'll use to sew the rose in place. Start rolling the rose until you get the desired look, pin it in several places to hold, thread the aforementioned tail and sew all the layers together. Be careful not to distort the shape of it when sewing.
Make 11 roses. You can make the scarflette bigger and richer so you may consider making more if that is the case.
To make the rose holding collar:
And this is the same foundation and row 1 as for the rose, but for the collar you chain 65. For row 1,dc1 in the 4th ch from hook, next ch2, sk2 and dc1 in next st. Repeat this pattern to the end. Dc1 more in the last st.
Repeat row 2 above as is. Work the tails.
Place the roses as shown in the picture, starting from the second chain space of the collar. Pin the roses and then sew them on. There are 6 roses sewn on the collar. The second row of roses is sewn between 2 from the row above.
Since you have the first chain spaces left free (on both ends), sew a velvet ribbon (on both ends) and your job is done. I didn't have a velvet ribbon in a matching color, so for my scarflette I used lace.
I hope you enjoy making this, and if you do, please share your experience in the comments.
