Put your crochet skills to the test with this scarf designed by Lucinda Ganderton

Crocheting flowers is one of the best ways to practise tension and the various stitches in crochet and is when most people start to get hooked (pardon the pun!) on this craft. The wonderful shades in this project give a feminine feel and suit all age groups. Make a smaller version for a little girl or add more flowers for an elegant evening shawl.
