Nora Bellows of Noni tells her story of designing the
Dogwood Flower Necklace Scarf. "Ever since I was a little girl
making necklaces, garlands, little tiaras, and crowns out of daisies, clover
flowers, and violets, I have longed to wear flowers around my neck. Here
in the 49 continental states we haven't quite got the hang of it or enough
flowers in season to pull it off. If you feel the same way as I do - here is
"What more perfect flower could there be to bespeak Springtime
than a dogwood? I wait for the days when they are in bloom all through the
forest. The trees are only just starting to leaf out, so there is the hint of
green everywhere but you can still see right into the depths of the woods. There
they are -- the ephemeral dogwood blossoms floating on air in palest pink,
white, cream, deeper pink. Now you can festoon yourself with their delicacy,
their beauty. Make a few, make a pile. Decorate this necklace scarf concept with
them, or go quite mad and make a whole glorious wrap of them."

flowers. NOTE: Each dogwood flower requires approximately 15 yds total of yarn.
