Crochet Pattern: Crayon Link Scarf

By Laurie Beranek – 6 Comments
I needed an item preferably a scarf to promote the new Kid’s Crochet classes at an event at the store where I teach. I came up with the Crayon Link Scarf pattern. The scarf was a huge hit with the kids. They loved the bright colors and many different ways they could wear it. Some options on how to wear it is as a scarf, mobieus, necklace or belt. I am sure there are many other ways to wear it too. Color options include all one color or each link a different color. It’s a great way to use your stash. The scarf works up quickly and the length can be adjusted by the number of links that are connected. Another option is to connect the end links and turn it into a mobieus. Crayon Link Scarf

    Thanks for this unique idea. I certainly will give it a try. An addition of varigated yarn would give a different look. My friend Becky knitted a similiar scarf/necklace for me. There is about 8X5 inches of flat knit at the back and 6-8 long loops connectiong the two scarf sides around the front to form a layered necklace. It is nice and warm.

    I wore my crayon link scarf out out lunch with a friend today. One of the diners came up to me to say she just had to come over and say how beautiful my scarf was, did I make it and where did I get the idea. I used all my left over Vanna yarn crayon colors from an afghan I made for my new grandson Henry. It’s a winner! Thanks for sharing the pattern.
