This is an old pattern from a couple of years ago on my Blogger platform. I'm re-posting here and I am including technique video tutorials to help with the pattern. In addition, the ad-free pdf is also available for purchase on Ravelry.
Let's face it. Kids things are cute. They're miniature and the kiddos look good modeling anything! Anyone who knows me knows that I wanted a lot of kids and at least one of each. I love my 3 boys but I still crave for a baby girl! Anyway, I love designing fun pieces for little girls.... A part of my little inner-girly self jumps out to play ;)
It was Crazy Hair Day at preschool during this time I designed this so I tied the boys hair. My youngest doesn't have much hair so he just got "batman ears" (aka pigtails). My other son had what looked like palm trees as a Mohawk ha-ha! I can't believe this one is going onto first grade and my baby (youngest) is starting Kinder this year!
Anyway back to the scarf... I wanted a simple textured scarf and to add a little fun, I've added pom poms to the ends of the scarf. This scarf is made using half double crochets into the back loops (which creates the ribbing texture). It's a quick project since it's made for a child but it's also soooo easy to adjust for an adult!
ABBREVIATIONS ch - Chain st(s) - Stitch(es) sl st(es) - Slip Stitches
hdc - Half Double Crochet PATTERN
4" x 46" not including Poms (but so easy to adjust!)
Leaving a 6" tail, Ch17 or as many ch sts as you'd like for the width of your scarf Row 1: 1hdc into the 3rd ch from the hook & into each ch st across. Row 2: Ch2 & turn. 1hdc into same st and into each st across through the back loops only Repeat Row 2 until scarf measures approx 40 inches or as long as you want it.
Fasten off leaving a 6" tail. Using a tapestry needle, weave ends through every other stitch and back into the beginning and cinch up. Do this on the other end as well.
POM POM Using a large pom pom maker, make pom by wrapping yarn around pom pom maker until it's nice and full. You can wrap less rounds if you want a looser pom.
Cut the middle using a sharp pair of scissors (or you'll be fighting with the thickness of the pom).
Once pom is cut, run a long piece of yarn through the middle and tie, wrap it around the other end and tie 2 more knots.
Attach pom pom to the ends of the scarf. Tie a few knots and then run the ends back into the pom and trim it on the other side. Trim as much as necessary to get a nice round pom pom.
I love how it turned out. Easy Stitches & cute poms!
