Free Pattern: Child’s Scarf

I recently received a special request: a scarf for my 6 year old nephew. I had never made a kid sized scarf before. After thinking about what to do for a bit, I decided on a few standards I wanted this scarf to meet. I wanted it to be something he could put on himself, that would stay on, and that wouldn’t be too tight around his neck. And this is what I came up with. It is SO easy and works up really fast. And it’s super cute.

I used worsted weight yarn (Impeccable available at Michael’s) and a size J hook for a gauge of 6 stitches per 2 inches.


1. Chainless sc 108, OR ch 109, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across.
2. Ch 3, turn, dc in each st across.
3. Repeat step 2, three more times.
4. Ch 3, turn, dc 20, ch 16 and skip 16 st, dc into the 17th st and finish row by dc in each st across.
5. Repeat step 2, four times. Be sure to dc into the ch and not into the large ch space. This will keep your stitches spread evenly and prevent bunching.
6. Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
7. Tie off and weave in ends.
8. Thread long end of scarf through the 16 ch hole.
9. Share the cuteness!
