This is a step-by-step tutorial pattern for a hand crocheted ruffled spiral scarf and flower brooch with “Dahlia” petals.

It is possible to wear the scarf and brooch together or separate, with a coat or suit, a cardigan or sweater, a jumper or dress, a jacket or top… A crocheted flower can be used also as: 1) a ponytail holder band – an excellent hair accessory; 2) a decoration for shawl or wrap, scarf, hat, headband, handbag, slippers etc.; 3) a decoration for cushions, curtains etc.
The scarf and flower brooch are crocheted in the same style and technique.

If you use a different yarn brand or type, use an average hook size between the smallest and largest on the yarn label. Variations and experimentations are unlimited! The pattern includes detailed photos with instructions how to make it -- useful for beginners. This pattern uses only basic stitches, so beginners should have no problem with it.

Materials you will need: 1) crochet yarn (I used Premium Acrylic DK yarn) approx. 40 g white and approx. 100 g royal blue; 2) crochet hook (I used hook size H8/5mm); 3) optional: buttons, beads; 4) tapestry needle; 5) brooch pin size between 30-50mm (1-2 inch) with 2 or more holes.
The approximate length of the crocheted scarf is about 160 cm (about 63 inch). The approximate diameter of the crocheted flower is about 11-12 cm (about 4-5 inch). The size of the scarf and flower may vary depending on the type of yarn, hook size and how tightly you crochet.
