Flower Vine Scarf -- Free Pattern!

Crochet Flower Vine Scarf Pattern 
(Link to the free pattern PDF is available at the bottom of this post) 

A few months ago, a friend of mine posted a picture to my Facebook page and asked if I could make one that looked just like it. So eventually, after too much procrastination and a few colds, I got to work and created the pattern as I went along. Without further ado, here's the pattern, free! If you find any errors or need clarification, please let me know in the comments below or on Ravelry.
This is a fun and pretty scarf to make for spring, and it is easily customizable. Try other flower or leaf patterns to adjust the look; add more flowers if you prefer! Enjoy!

Pattern Difficulty

Worsted weight yarn in four colors: [yardage is approx.]
  -green (50 yds/ 46 m),
  -light green (12 yds / 11 m),
  -dark pink (11 yds/ 10 m),
  -pink (16 yds/ 15 m).
Size H Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle

Ch = chain(s)
St(s) = stitch(es)
Sl st = slip stitch
Sc = single crochet
Dc = double crochet
Tr = treble crochet
Pop = popcorn stitch

Stitch Explanation: Popcorn- work 5 dc in indicated st, remove hook and insert in first dc of 5-dc group, hook dropped loop, and pull through.
Ch 276
Row 1: DC in the 4th ch from hook. Now, loosely, dc into the 3rd ch (behind the dc just made).
Row 2: Count 2 sts and dc into the second st. loosely dc into the first st behind the dc just made. This forms an ‘X’.
Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you reach the end of the chain, sl st into the last chain and fasten off.

LEAF (make 15)
10 green, 5 light green
Ch 8
Row 1: In each st across, sl st, sc, dc, tr, dc, sc, sl st. In the same st as the sl st, sc 1 and then sl st again.
Row 2: Continue pattern of sc, dc, tr, dc, sc, sl st. Do not fasten off!
Row 3: (creating the stem and vein) Ch 6, sc 1, sl st 4. Sl st 8 across the center of the petal. Ch 1. *Fasten off, leaving a 6 inch tail.
*Finishing the leaf: Using a yarn needle, weave the tail through the back of the petal and stem, bringing it to the top of the stem. Knot it to the stem so it will not pull the petal backwards. Leave the remaining length for attachment. 

FLOWERS (make 2)
Ch 25.
Row 1: Sc 24, ch 2, turn.
Row 2: Working in back loops for the rest of the row, make a pop st. Ch 1. *Skip one st, make a pop st in next st, ch 1.* repeat 3 times (5 pop sts). Change to lighter color and dc in the next st (do not skip st as before).
Row 3: *Dc 5 in next st. Sl st into next sc and ch 1.* repeat 6 times, turn.
Row 4: Working in back loops again, repeat * 6 times, then fasten off. Weave in all ends.
Cut a 12 inch sting of yarn. Using a yarn needle, weave the yarn through the foundation ch sts. Pull slowly, enough to curl the foundation ch so you can see how the flower will round out. Sew the flower “walls” into place as you wind the piece.

Placement of the flowers and leaves on the scarf is at your discretion, but this is where I placed them. Be sure to try the scarf on before attaching the flowers to ensure that they are visible. 
Sew one flower near the 80th ch st, and another one near the 200th ch st. For each end of the scarf, sew three leaves together in a small cluster and attach to the ends. Sew the remaining leaves at various places along the scarf, stitching a few together to form a small set of two. Weave in all ends. Enjoy!
