Happy New Year! Here is my latest crafting project that I wanted to share as the coldest of the winter months approach. I started making scarves for my own kids after I could not find scarves in stores...there are hats, mittens, snow boots, and jackets but no scarves! This colorful kid's scarf is super easy and perfect for beginners, so give it a try!
Difficulty Level: Beginner
Project Time: 1-2 hours
I use leftover green, white, and purple spools of RedHeart yarn (found them just lying around my house) and a 5.5 mm crochet hook.
What You Will Learn:
How to tie slip knot
Single crochet stitch
How to crochet a scarf
How to change yarn colors
How to hide yarn tails
Single crochet 10 rows of green, then 2 rows of white, then 10 rows of purple…
Followed by 2 rows of green, then 10 rows of white, then 2 rows of purple
Repeat this same pattern 4 times.
Tying in the Yarn Tails:
Always match yarn tails with the scarf color you are crocheting into.
Pick up a few loops off your scarf and pull yarn tail through. Do this 4-5 times for each yarn tail, choosing loops that allow you to pull the yarn through in a zig zag or a circle to hold it in tight. Clip off any tail left over.
Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle or hand wash. Dry in dryer or air dry.
