It seems like I’m the only person without a PINTEREST!
My friend Renee sent me this scarf she saw on Pinterest and asked if I could make her something similar.
We went to Walmart that same night and she picked out her yarn.
It was a really fast project because the yarn she chose was thick…much thicker than in the scarf on pinterest.
I didn’t have a pattern for the one she found on pinterest so I created my own. Mine came out longer but it can be double up on really cold days and trust me it’s been a really cold winter in SD lately!
To make the scarf I used a size J crochet hook and three skeins of Lionbrand Hometown USA yarn in Chicago Charcoal.
I chained 125 & being careful not to twist the chain joined with the first chain.
For the first round I chained 2 and HDC in each chain stitch for a total of 125 hdc.
For the second round I chained 2 and hdc in the back loop only of each hdc.
For the third round I chained 2 and hdc in the front loop only of each hdc.
I repeated the second and third round until I reached the height I wanted and then cut and weaved in the tail.
For the bow, I chained 24, and hdc in 2nd chain from hook for 22hdc.
For each row after I chained two and hdc in the back loops only in for each row (because I wasn’t crocheting in a circle I didn’t have to alternate between front and back loops like I did for the scarf).
I repeated each row until I got to the same height for the scarf.
I sewed the middle of the bow together to create the ruched(sp?) effect.
Then I chained 7, hdc in 2nd chain from hook for 5 hdc.
For next row I chained 2 and hdc in back loops only for each row until the strap was long enough to wrap around the bow and scarf and slip stitched it together to finish off
SORRY IF MY INSTRUCTIONS ARE POOR. THIS IS MY FIRST TIME SHARING A PATTERN.
