lovely free scarflet pattern by craftybegonia

This is one of those sweet and short pieces you can carry in your bag and you wrap around your neck when you feel a chilly wind. It is very easy, effective and it works up fast! This scarflet will work out really well in worsted weight yarn but you can make it in a bulkier weight if you prefer, but if you change the thickness of the yarn, please make a sample to check the gauge.
Skill- Relatively easy.

Materials-
Red Heart worsted weight yarn Burgundy (1 skein)

Row 2- Skip first 2 ch of first loop, work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch of loop, skip the rest of the chains of loop, skip the first 2 ch of next loop, make 1 dc in each of next 2 ch, skip last ch of loop, ch 1,
skip the first 2 ch of next loop, make 1 dc in each of next 2 ch, skip last ch of loop, skip first 2 ch of next loop, work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch of loop, skip res of chs of loop, ch 2, 1 sc in last st of row. Ch 5, turn.

Row 5- 1 hdc in each st across.
Row 6- 1 hdc in each st across.
Row 7- 1 hdc in each st across.
Note- We could have used a button for this scarflet, but I thought it would be more fun and a whole lot more flirty if we used a flower instead.
Flower (Serves as Button)-
With Shocking Pink and H hook, ch 6 and slip stitch to join into a ring.
Rnd 1- Work 1 sc in each ch around. (6 sc)
Row 2 (Petal)- *Ch 6, work 1 sc in second ch from hook, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 sc in last ch, sl st in  foundation sc (the sc of center round of flower), sl st in next sc, rep from* around.
Sew Flower to correspond with buttonhole
Note- This Flower makes a tight fit, if you would like to substitute another flower, you may do so. I wanted a larger Flower so that the scarflet won't fly open with use.
