Watch Your Crochet Bloom with Flower Motif Scarf Patterns
Summer’s gorgeous blooms are always gone too soon, but crochet flowers last forever! Flower motifs are popping up all over Pinterest and Instagram in the form of afghans, skirts, and most prominently, scarves. Flower motif scarf patterns are the perfect project for summer: portable (you often only work on one motif at a time!), colorful, and on-trend!
Really, any crochet flower motif can be made into a scarf if you are confident joining your own motifs. Just add lots of chain spaces in between for a very forgiving, lacy scarf with wonderful drape.
But if you’re looking for inspiration, we’ve got tons of flower motif scarf patterns to tempt you! Whether your tastes are bold or subtle, monochromatic or multicolored, there’s a crochet scarf here that you’ll love.
This new crochet scarf pattern is perfect for summer on so many levels. The hexagonal motifs call to mind flowers and honeycomb, worked in a bright, sunny yellow. Plus the light, lacy fabric is just the right weight for summer. You’ll work one motif at a time, making this the perfect take-along project for outdoor music festivals, baseball games, or just a 10 minute break from work!

Floating Flowers Scarf from Crochet Loom Blooms
Look to the past for a totally different way to create flower motifs: using a flower loom! The vintage craft of making loomed flowers is seeing a huge resurgence this year, and when combined with crochet, it’s truly magic. In Crochet Loom Blooms, Haafner Linssen walks you through how to make your own flower loom and/or how to use a commercial loom to make beautiful flower motifs you can join with crochet, from simple to intricate. The book also includes project ideas to combine your blooms, including this gorgeous flower motif scarf.
