The Wild Floret Scarf is my July Scarf of the Month Crochet Along Pattern. This pretty scarf features the Floret Stitch and an easy two row repeat using double crochet stitches and slip stitches.
To make my Wild Floret Scarf you will need Chunky Weight Yarn  (also known as Bulky Weight Yarn ) and a 6 mm (J) crochet hook.
Pop by next week to get my matching Wild Floret Hat pattern which also uses the pretty floret stitch.

King Cole yarn is available from your local yarn shop, or online at the links in my post below.
Safari Chunky Yarn
Safari Chunky is a New Range of yarns from King Cole.
The color I used is called Wilderness (Shade: 5003) and it is dyed with shades of soft pink, white and grey with bold black. This variegated yarn has a fun dye patterning that mimics animalistic stripes. The smaller the stitch you use, the narrower the stripe effect.
Safari Chunky yarn contains 100% Premium Acrylic. It is packaged in a 150 g Cake (so you can see all the pretty colors included). Each cake includes 285 meters (311 yards) of yarn. For my scarf I used one cake of Safari Chunky.
The yarn has some density to it and my finished scarf fabric has a lovely little squish to it when I pinch the stitches between my fingers. There were no ties or knots in my cake of yarn, leaving me with only 2 ends to weave in at completion of my project.
The yarn was consistent in thickness from start to finish, allowing me to keep my gauge (tension) consistent. It will work well for projects that require a specific gauge (like hats and garments). This yarn will also make a lovely sweater, blanket or shawl for those who want to be snuggled up in something warm and cozy.

- Stitch multiple: (2 + 1), plus 2 for the starting chain
- I used a Foundation Double Crochet instead of a foundation chain. You may substitute a foundation chain if you prefer. Please see ‘alternate R1 instructions’ to begin using a foundation chain instead.
- If you choose to use a foundation chain instead of Fdc, I recommend working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. This gives the edge a more finished look and is visually the same as the top of the stitches from the final row you will be working for the scarf. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
- To change the scarf length, work your foundation double crochet stitches (Fdc) until you reach your desired scarf length and make sure you have a number of Fdc stitches you can divide evenly by 2, then add 1 additional Fdc stitch. Then proceed to R2.
- To change the scarf length, chain until you reach your desired scarf length and make sure you have a number of chains you can divide equally by 2, then add 3 more chains. Then follow the ‘alternate R1 instructions’ below.
- To increase the width of your scarf, work more rows of the floret stitch.
- The initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc.
- The initial ch-1 does not count as a stitch.
- Add this pattern to your Ravelry Library here.
