TUNISIAN CROCHET KIDS SCARF


This Tunisian crochet kids’ scarf is the perfect addition to your little one’s winter wardrobe! It is not only super soft but also functional with two huge pockets. They can store some snacks in there or stick their mittens or ear warmers in there when not in use.

My favorite part is the polar pup face on each of the pockets. They pair so well with this Caron Latte Cake color and the lattice stitch reminds me of the beautiful lattice structure of snowflakes!

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

About The Pattern


This Tunisian crochet children’s scarf pattern is beginner-friendly and although it’s written for a child size, it can easily be customized in length by completing more or less rows.

It can even be made for adults by leaving out the polar pop face on the pockets (unless you love wearing animal faces =)). This scarf can easily be completed in a few hours since it’s made with bulky weight yarn and a size N13 Tunisian crochet hook.

It’s the perfect scarf for the upcoming winter season.
