Never Ending Blooms Scarf

 

Firstly I need to give a shout out to the amazing Linda for the name!  I popped up a question on Instagram & Facebook asking for some ideas and I love Linda's!  This floral motif scarf is repetitive and mindful so fits the Never Ending Blooms name absolutely perfectly!

I started making the first version of the Never Ending Blooms scarf in August 2020 after we received a shipment of the super scrumptious Cumulus Dappled from Juniper Moon Farms and knew that I needed to have a play with it! 

 

 

I started looking around for patterns for one skein and nothing really jumped out at me.  I also knew I wanted to make a scarf with this yarn as it is soooo insanely soft I thought it would be so nice and squishy having it close to skin. 

While trawling through Pinterest I saw a simple floral motif picture but unfortunately there was no link to a pattern or any more information.  I popped the picture into Google image search and still no joy.  I think I probably spent 3-4 hours trying to find the pattern for the motif with no luck!  

So I set about making my own version and while this one is mine, the original idea and pattern wasn't and I want to give a shout out to the person who did the original motif!

I think I might have 'frogged' the first motif at least 10 times before I was happy with how it looked.  Luckily the gorgeous Cumulus Dappled was no worse for wear!

 

 

I didn't write this pattern at the time but luckily I often scribble ideas in a book I keep on my desk and I had drawn the idea for the motif there.   So when it came to writing the pattern up I was able to refer to my drawing and the original scarf!

I was thinking for this version of the Never Ending Blooms scarf that I would use a lighter yarn.  The original was made in August however it was December here in Melbourne when I decided to make the second one! 

For my second Never Ending Blooms Scarf I used Katia Concept Boheme (#55).  It is a Cotton/Hemp blend and lovely and soft but light enough for a summer scarf.
