Wandering Wings and Garden Jewels!! FREE Crochet Patterns

WANDERING WINGS SCARF with GARDEN JEWELS MUM

This is the first pattern in my newest series of patterns "Wandering Wings" and "Garden Jewels".

Last year I was playing around with a random ball of yarn and found at the end of my hook what appeared to resemble a butterfly wing.  It was the beginning of Winter, which meant I was up to my eyeballs in already planned Christmas gifts. So I tucked it away, only to have it resurface on my radar just recently. My work scheduled has lessened and this new design REALLY began to take shape! 

The stitches in this scarf do not lay flat. There is a sort of "lift" of each wing that makes it appear that the wings are in motion!! Because of this, it is not necessary to block this scarf...but if you choose to do so, it will not make it any less beautiful. 

But the scarf was not complete by itself. It needed something to tie it all together. With Fall just around the corner I began to think about the Mum. A staple for the fall garden and of course for all the Homecoming Corsages!! But why name it Garden Jewel?? Because flowers are the JEWEL of the garden!! It connects to your scarf by a lovely little strap and button closure so that you can change out the colors or use it on a different scarf all together.
