Tropical Delight

I've been busy creating my own little colourful flowers, 44 of them, and I've decided to turn them in to a simple scarf. 

I also considered making a poncho but when I realised that I'd need another 100 flowers I quickly changed my mind and decided that a scarf would do.

Made with Stylecraft Special DK, I used the following colours - Fondant, Candyfloss, Magenta, Clematis, Lemon, Citron, Spice, Shrimp, Apricot and Saffron.

I deliberately chose bright, tropical, fruity colours that grab your attention and I'm pleased with how vibrant they look.

I've decided to use a braided join to assemble the flowers together.

Then I plan to chart the pattern so that others can have a go too, if they wish.
