#221 Dogwood Flower Necklace Scarf
Dogwood Necklace Scarf (No. 221)
Ever since I was a little girl making necklaces, garlands, little tiaras, and crowns out of daisies, clover flowers, and violets, I have longed to wear flowers around my neck. Here in the 49 continental states we haven’t quite got the hang of it or enough flowers in season to pull it off. If you feel the same way as I do - here is your solution!
What more perfect flower could there be to bespeak Springtime than a dogwood? I wait for the days when they are in bloom all through the forest. The trees are only just starting to leaf out, so there is the hint of green everywhere but you can still see right into the depths of the woods. There they are -- the ephemeral dogwood blossoms floating on air in palest pink, white, cream, deeper pink. Now you can festoon yourself with their delicacy, their beauty. Make a few, make a pile. Decorate this necklace scarf concept with them, or go quite mad and make a whole glorious wrap of them (and then send me a picture!).
1 sk of each color makes a pile of dogwood flowers. NOTE: Each dogwood flower requires approximately 15 yds total of yarn.
