I Never Promised You A Rose Garden Scarf

The Name

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden by Lynn Anderson

A rose scarf deserves a rose name.

The Scarf

On da Hook: July 22, 2013-December 10, 2013
Pattern: I Never Promised You A Rose Garden by Hooker Leo
Hook: Boye US J/10 – 6.0 mm
Dimensions: 78 inches (approximate)

My cousin requested this scarf a while ago, and I’ll admit, I was intimidated by possible design until such time it came to me and I was able to make the scarf over a 48 hour period. I was not happy with many of the rose patterns I found, so this pattern includes yet another rose pattern. I had enough yarn left over to make a hat and/or mitts. Keep in mind that if you change the weight of the yarn lower, you could get by with less; higher, you might be able to get by with the measurements above.

The Yarns

Red Heart Super Saver (0319 Cherry Red) [364 yds (333 m); yarn weight: medium (4)]
Red Heart Super Saver (0389 Hunter Green) [364 yds (333 m); yarn weight: medium (4)]
Unknown (Light Green) [approximately 100.0 yds (155 m); yarn weight: medium (4)]
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice (180 Cranberry) [170.0 yds (155 m); yarn weight: medium (4)]

I skein, or partial, of each color.

Designer Notes

Just in case you are interested, here is the original art I created: 2020-02-12: original art lost.

The pattern is available on my Off da Hook patterns page, which may be accessed by the link above. This pattern remains untested. Because I a un unprofessional pattern writer, you may encounter some errors, typos, fucked up shit! Please email your concerns to me; I will get back to you.
