Butterfly Memories. Crocheted Scarf, Headband & Beyond Pattern for Kids and Adult
|March 19, 2012||Filled under 2012, Patterns|
A butterfly needs no more than this:
The sun, the dew and a flower’s kiss.
Give a butterfly a happy memory with this playful scarf and headband, suitable for wearers of all ages! The layered floral motifs are crocheted in one piece with minimal joining and weaving, making this an easy and fun pattern. The scarf can be made using a wide range of yarn weights, from sport to medium and bulky weight yarns, for any season or occasion. Work it in jewel tones or pastels, in solid colors or softly variegated shades for a one-of-a-kind accessory. Trim it as you wish with tiny leaf appliqués, sparkling beads, glittery sequins, or with a myriad of miniature butterflies to delight the eye. You can also wear it with one or more pins made from my free Papillon pattern. This pattern is very versatile. Try making a bracelet by using a stretchy yarn and create a tube or crochet flat and secure with a nice button or jewelry findings.
Also, I am so excited and proud to offer you my very first pattern in a new style! From now, all my patterns are including links to online stores, where you can purchase all available yarn and supplies used in the patterns, measurements are available in both metric and US systems, but my most favorite part – it’s very detailed and clear diagrams I started draw with Adobe Illustrator. I call my patterns “international” or “worldwide” suitable now, because if you are good with symbol diagrams, you really do not need written instructions anymore – the symbol diagrams are detailed enough to complete a project!
… And as always, now is our traditional little Giveaway: first 3 persons, who leave comment on this post will receive this pattern via email in PDF format for FREE!! Good luck and have a fun!
