Make two traditional granny squares as follows:

Use whatever method you are comfortable with to join your square to your main work-piece.   (I used the join-as-you go method to join my squares, by making a slip st every third stitch from my granny square into my main work-piece (make sure that the right side of both squares face in the same direction when you join)


Border:
Worked along the length of the scarf on both sides - right side facing

Row 1:  Join yarn in corner of granny square (right side facing);   3ch, 1dc into each dc; 1dc into corner space, 1dc across join;   2dc into side of each post along the granny rows;  1dc across join, 1dc into corner space, 1dc into each dc, 1dc into corner of granny, break off yarn.


Row 2:   Join yarn in top of 3ch on row 2, 1sc into each dc across the length of the scarf, break off yarn


Row 3:  Join yarn in 1st single crochet,   3ch (counts as 1dc) 2dc in same space as join;   (skip 2sc, sl st into 3rd sc;   skip 2sc, 6dc in next sc) repeat to last 6sc;   skip 2sc, sl st in next sc; skip 2sc, 3dc in last sc, break off yarn


Fringe Edging:
Worked along both ends of the scarf in the same colour as the Shell Border Row 

Row 1:  Working on the right side of your work, join yarn into side post of shell row;  2sc into same place as join,  1sc into side post of sc row, 2sc into side post of dc row; 1sc into each dc across granny square;   2sc into side post of dc row;  1sc into side post of sc row;  2sc into side post of shell row, turn work (27sc)


Row 2:  Working on the wrong side of your work, 1ch, 1sc into same place as 1st sc, 1sc into each of next 26sc, turn work.

Row 3:  working on the right side of your work, (15ch, Popcorn Stitch into fourth ch from hook, 12ch, skip 2sc, sl st into 3rd sc) x 9.   Break off yarn.


EMBELLISHMENTS
Add as many flowers as you like (or none at all), you can even add beads or buttons to "customize" your scarf!


Pansy Flower:
Foundation: 3ch or make a magic ring

Petals:  (3ch, 4 trc, 3ch, sl st into ring) x 2;   2ch, 2dc, 2ch, sl st into ring;   3ch, 2trc, 3ch sl st into ring,   2ch, 2dc, 2ch, sl st into ring,    break off yarn.

Embroider the flower centres in a contrasting colour

Leaves: 
Foundation:  6ch

Leaf:  1sc into 2nd ch from hook; 1sc into next ch, 1hdc into each of next 2ch;  6dc into last chain (this will form the curve of your leaf and will bring you around to the bottom end of the chain);   working along the bottom edge of the chain, 1hdc into each of next 2ch; 1sc into next ch,  sl st into next ch, break off yarn.
