Crocheted Child’s Scarf
Collaborating this month with a lovely group of Bloggers to bring you some new craft ideas. For the February Craft Destash we were challenged to create a project using only items currently found in our craft stash. We were to make something new with crafty supplies or re-make an item we’ve been holding on to for a while. For this challenge I decided to make a crocheted child’s scarf.
I found some yarn on clearance last year at Hobby Lobby for $1.62. It’s called Soft Illusion and it’s some of the softest yarn I have ever felt. And it is such a pretty mix of pastel colors. I really wanted to make a blanket with it but there was only 3 skeins. Not enough for a blanket 😥 So I decided to make this little scarf for my grandbaby. It is really easy and doesn’t take much time at all!

Row 1: sc in 2nd chain from hook and every chain across (76 sc); ch 2 and turn

Rows 3-6: repeat row 2; at the end of row 6, ch 1

If desired, add a button to one end of the scarf about 5 inches from the end.
