Cherry Blossom Scarf Crochet Pattern
Spring is in the air, or at least it’s just around the corner if you live in the northeast like me! Some of my favorite sights and smells of the spring are all the lovely flowers and trees that start blooming once the weather starts to thaw out and everything comes back to life. While I’m not a huge fan of bugs – which I realize go hand in hand with plant life in general – I still love watching everything start to grow again after a long winter.
Ironically, I’ve chosen a favorite flower (it’s actually a tree, but oh well!) that doesn’t even grow near me! I’m in love with the delicate yet incredibly bright and colorful cherry blossoms that are native to Japan. In fact, I will be seeing some of these lovely trees up close for the very first time when I take a trip to Tokyo this spring! (Read all about it and see the backpack I’m taking there in my “Tokyo Lights Backpack” post HERE!) I know, I know – how can it be my favorite flower/tree when I’ve never even seen one in person before?! Well, I like to think that if it’s my favorite right now, just from seeing them in photos, I’ll just love cherry blossoms all that much more once I’ve seen them in real life!
(Pin it for later!)
I used a favorite for this project – Lion Brand Hometown USA in Providence Pink, New York White, and Billings Chocolate. Does this pink shade look familiar? It should, because it’s actually the same shade I used for my Caylin Scarf (pattern HERE!) a few months back! This Hometown USA yarn has a soft, shiny texture and chunky weight, so it works up quickly and looks lovely! Find Providence Pink on Amazon HERE, New York White on Amazon HERE, and Billings Chocolate on Amazon HERE!
