Materials:

  • Worsted weight yarn of your choice (Yarn shown is Red Heart Super Saver...washable for the kids!  Colors: "Turquoise" "Delft Blue" "White" "Orchid")
  • J (6.0 mm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors
Sizing:

  • 34 inches long (or desired length)
  • 6 inches wide
  • Snowflakes are each 2 inches wide




Instructions for scarf:

Note for the scarf shown, I worked 6 rows each of the blues and purples and 3 rows each for the white stripes.

Ch 24

Row 1: In the fourth ch from the hook, work a dc.  Dc in each ch across.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn (counts as a dc).  *In the next dc, work a fpdc, in the next dc, work a bpdc.  Rpt from * across.  Work a dc in the top ch of turning ch.

Row 3: Ch 3 and turn (counts as a dc).  *In the next dc, work a bpdc, in the next dc, work a fpdc.  Rpt from * across.  Work a dc in the top ch of turning ch.

Instructions for snowflake: 

Ch 4 and join to form a ring.


Round 1: *sc, ch 2. In the second ch from the hook, work 4 sc. Work a sl st into center of ring. Repeat from * five more times. There should be 6 total. Fasten off and weave in any ends. Because the snowflakes are little, you may need to shape with your hands a bit.


Finishing & Assembly:

Using tail from snowflakes or matching piece of yarn, sew snowflakes onto scarf with a tapestry needle.  You can cover your scarf or just make a few like I did.  Weave in all ends and you're finished!

Click the button below to add this to your Ravelry queue:



Materials:

  • Worsted weight yarn in colors of your choice (yarn shown is Red Heart Super Saver in "Cherry Red" "Paddy Green" and "White"
  • J (6.0 mm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors

Sizing: 

  • Larger circles are 5 inches across
  • Smaller circles are 2 inches across



Instructions for Larger Circles:

Ch 4 and join into a ring with a slip stitch (Work this in white).

Round 1 (white yarn): ch 4 (counts as a dc), then (dc into center of ring, chain 1) 11 times. Join to close with a slip stitch.

Round 2 (red or green yarn): Chain 4 and work a dc in the same space. Chain 1, then work two double crochet in the next (chain 1) space. Keep doing this all the way around, working 2 dc, ch 1 in each space. Join to close round with a slip stitch.

Round 3 (white yarn): Chain 2, then work a hdc in the same space.  In the next space (in between each dc post), work 2 hdc. Repeat around circle, then join to close with a slip stitch.

Round 4 (red or green yarn): Work a sl st into the first st, a sl st into the next st, then in the next st (sc, ch 2, sc). Repeat this sequence all the way around the circle. Fasten off.


Instructions for Smaller Circles:

Ch 4 and join into a ring with a slip stitch (Work this in red or green).
Round 1: ch 4 (counts as a dc), then dc into center of ring 11 times. Join to close with a slip stitch.

Finishing & Assembly:

Weave in all ends.  Determine how much spacing you'd like in between the circles.  I found it helpful to lay out all of the circles the way I wanted before beginning.  The garland shown has 12 chains in between each.  To begin, chain 12, slide a circle onto your hook and work a sc to add it on.  Ch 12, then add another circle, ch 12, add another circle and so on.  Finish up by doing 12 more chains.

  • H (5.0 mm) crochet hook

Round 1: Chain 4, work (3 dc into center of ring, chain 1) 3 times, then 2 dc into center of ring. Join to close with a slip stitch.

Note:
Now if you want to make round 2 in the same color, simply slip stitch until you reach a ch1 at the corner and keep going. If you want to switch colors...cut yarn, leaving a tail, and fasten it with a slip stitch. Join the new yarn at one of the corners as shown and tie securely.

Round 2: To work the corner of round 2, first chain 4, then 2 dc in same space, then chain 1, then 3 dc in the same space...first corner done!
Then chain 1, then work the next corner by working 3 dc in next space, chain 1, then 3 dc in same space, chain 1, repeat two more times to complete the round.

Round 3: Work the corner in the same manner as the previous round: chain 4, 2 dc in same space, chain 1, 3 dc in same space, chain 1. To work the sides, simply work 3 dc in the next space then chain 1...repeat until you reach a corner again.


Assembly and Finishing:

Sandwich the grannies together with right sides facing outward.  Beginning at upper left corner, tie yarn onto both stitches of grannies (both layers).  Single crochet in each stitch around, but work 2 sc in each corner.  Fasten off and weave in ends.  Using matching yarn from the project, sew on button or other embellishments if you like.
