There are times when I knit for the beauty of it. I take the time to devote myself to the project without worrying about the time it takes. The demands of the gift rule me. Such was the way with the Sunflower scarf.
The scarf can be made as short or as long as you please. . . one need only tweak the Sunflower pattern slightly. Work with a single-strand of worsted weight yarn. For the stem, work only 7 rounds and then follow the pattern as written. I varied the color of the sunflower petals slightly for interest. This scarf contains 15 flowers and is dramatically stunning either worn long or wrapped multiple times against the cold. A duster-length scarf is not for everyone: a 7 – 8 flower scarf is a beautiful ornament with a professional suit, or a fun and casual cowl-ish lovely when wrapped once and pinned or sewn together as an infinity-wrap.
The perfect present for someone you really love. Or a special gift for yourself.
