i'm interest in your flower scarf


Not sure if this helps, Carol, but before I saw Lucy's gorgeous scarf I found a Japanese flower shawl in Simply Crochet (32) made in cotton. Like you I had plenty of Stylecraft special dk from making Lucy's blankets and didn't really want a shawl in cotton. So I studied the colours and found equivalents in the stylecraft yarn. I made it last year and it has worked brilliantly. Like Lucy's scarf no-one believes there are only 9 colours as the colours look different depending on which colour they are against. It drapes beautifully - I have inadvertently blocked it a bit by draping it on the back of the sofa where people lean on it. (I know you can't block acrylic - but warm people leaning against it have had an effect.) Everyone who sees it comments on how gorgeous it is and my baby granddaughter loves sleeping under it when she naps here She clutches it and studies the colours which she really seems to like. I used matador, bright pink, meadow, khaki, cream, saffron, burgundy, bluebell and royal blue.

I've recommended Attic24 to so many people who I've talked to about crochet - you know how it is when you're in a yarn shop - people talk to each other. It's a brilliant site and has been responsible for my taking up crochet again (I just had to make that Elmer blanket and the Coast blanket and the Summer Garden blanket ....) after many years. I continued to knit but somehow left crochet behind - so this is a good opportunity to say thank you Lucy.

It's been so long since you posted this, I don't know if you'll even see my question - but I must ask anyhow.
I've so admired this since the very first time I saw this lovely, flowery scarf. Though I put it on "the back burner" for a while, I think I'd finally like to make one for myself.
But my question is this: Do you think that Stylecraft Special DK yarn would work for this scarf? I realize it will be lighter - but perhaps better for summer/early fall. I am 'armed' with lots of this colorful yarn right now and thought about making this Japanese Flower Scarf with the Stylecraft Special DK.
What do you think? would the flowers have enough body - and hold their shape?
I know you've worked with the Stylecraft Special DK a lot and thought you'd know how this would work.
Thank you so much for your continued inspiration! You were the first blogger I found when I picked up crochet again a few years ago - after over 20 years without picking up a hook. Because of you - I was HOOKED! you colors and your designs caught my eye and inspired me to keep going.
I made your Blooming Pillow - it was the first project I completed! It remains a colorful reminder of you and your inspiration.
Thank you, Lucy!

So gloriously gorgeous !

Hi your such an inspiration. I've done a completely different Japanese Crochet scarf with buttons which can be draped different ways. ☺ Please have a look at crochetwondersbyAngella.blogspot.com.au. I hope you like it. Thanks.


This is amazingly beautiful! I bought the book and am anxiously awaiting the gorgeous yarn. Hoping I can figure out the teeny tiny chart, but I assume the Japaneses symbols are the same! Wish me luck, and thanks for your ongoing inspiration!




This is INCREDIBLY gorgeous! I MUST do this! Thanks for the inspiration


Inspired by your scarf, I am working to make a bed runner with Japanese flowers. I have made enough flowers and decided on a layout. But I don't know how to join them!!! Would you mind sharing how-to? This was my first crochet project and I really would like to display the runner. Thank you very much in advance.

I've loved this pattern forever..now in 2014 I am making one! Do you have it on Ravelry?


I wish you would post a pattern or a graph of this flower. I would love to make some.

Ginny Judson

Oh how I ache to buy this beautiful yarn! I have calculated that 10 skeins would cost about $130, American! I don't think I will be making this out of this lovely, soft, gorgeous, silky wool! I can look at your lovely pictures though and imagine how wonderful it must feel! It's a gorgeous thing!

Karen Cain

This is beautiful, however I am trying to find a pattern to make a scarf out of hearts?

Maria de Lourdes Ramírez Barba

Hermoso, gracias por compartir tanta belleza hecha por manos maravillosas.


Hi, where can I get the pattern for the flowers? I would live to make the same flowers they look gorgeous in your wrap!

Maya Hanley

Absolutely gorgeous! You inspired me so much I bought lots of the yarn you recommend and am making it now myself but in more muted colours.


Wow! It's just beautiful!
