Abi is a mosaic crochet designer who, like many of us, taught herself to crochet from YouTube videos. It wasn’t long before she was hooked on her new hobby! In 2020 she discovered mosaic crochet and became instantly addicted to designing her own patterns. She’s clearly mastered the design process as you can see by her Floral Reflections scarf.
Oh, this is gonna be so good! Our first scarf kicks off today! Our scarf designer is Abi McIntyre of Get Yer Hook On and you are going to want to run, repeat, run to grab your hook and get this scarf started! Abi has designed this scarf in the mosaic crochet style and it’s spectacular! Just look at the color placement in the samples below. You’ll be able to find this pattern for free, for 1 week only, in her Website. Then it will be available for purchase on Ravelry and Etsy.
Abi lives in Kirkintilloch, Scotland with her husband and dog, spending all her spare time designing and crocheting. Her inspiration comes from the Scottish landscape, Celtic origins as well as the intricate patterns found in nature and you’ll find all of those themes in this gorgeous scarf she calls Floral Reflections. Just look at all these beautiful scarves by Abi and our testers!

Testers samples and testimonials:
Jaimie has said this about the pattern:
“This pattern is well written and easy to follow. It needs some concentration, but very much worth the effort. Once you get past the halfway point, it’s a lot of fun to see the reflection starting and makes finishing this scarf so satisfying.”
Janette’s thoughts and sample:
“I knew as soon as I saw this design that I wanted to make it. I have worked on several of Abi’s patterns are they are always clearly written and well explained. This design was no exception. I made it in Stylecraft Naturals Bamboo and Cotton as I knew that this would give a nice drape to the finished fabric.
The scarf has seven repeats of 41 stitches which is a long repeat but the resulting effect of the reflection in the two sides is beautiful and worth the effort.
I really enjoyed making this scarf, but I enjoy wearing it just as much. I made it specifically to wear with my olive dress and now that the weather has turned cooler, I have worn it several times andhave received many compliments. I intend to make another one using Sirdar Baby Bamboo in grey tones.”
Joanne’s scarf and her insight on both:
“It was an absolute pleasure to test this pattern. The effect of the reflection is stunning. It was very easy to follow and well written as are all of Abi’s patterns.”
Susan’s creation and thoughts:
“Abi McIntyre has designed some spectacular mosaic blankets that are now world famous. Here she turns her talents to a beautiful scarf. I loved, loved, loved! making it, it whipped up quickly, and it turned out to be so beautiful. I’ll be making lots of them for presents.”
Malathi’s scarf and testimonial:
“I was so happy to test this scarf! The instructions and chart were very easy to follow. I follow Abi McIntyre’s beautiful patterns and many are on my list to do. Im so glad i got to make this scarf as it came out so beautiful and my granddaughter absolutely loves it! I can’t wait to make more with different colors!!”
Mary’s scarf, thought on the pattern and plans for the scarf:
“I call it Floral, as you can see I have omitted the reflections! Many of the items I test will be gifts for our giving tree at Christmas for youngsters in our area. As I made the scarf, I realized that half the width would be best for a child. I enjoyed making it, the pattern was well written, suitable for a newbie or a novice. Thanks for the opportunity to test!”
