Fun-tastic Kid’s Scarf Crochet Pattern
Welcome to the 12 weeks before Christmas Blog Hop 2018! Each Saturday (from Sept 23 – Dec 8th) a new designer will be bringing you a project that is great for gift giving.
It’s week 2, and today I have a new pattern that is so fun for kids.
For full details on this blog hop, see the page that Crochet Willow set up HERE.
I love giving gifts that I know the receiver will love. I buy yarn based on the recipient, as well as patterns.
The yarn I used for the Fun-tastic scarf below was bought with the intention of making something for my fun-loving daughter.
Please Note: Since purchasing this yarn I noticed it was discontinued, but you can just substitute it for any #5 bulky/chunky yarn.
