Scarf for Tiny Friends

This simple scarf adds an accent pop to any tiny plushies or dolls you may have. The finished scarf is approximately 3/4" x 12". My dapper model is a bunny from Blippo's December 2014 Kawaii Box. His neck circumference is about four inches, and his height is approximately four inches (five-and-a-half inches with ears up). The scarf can also wind around his neck twice, for an extra-warm look.

This scarf is perfect for beginner crocheters since it's really easy and quick. If you don't know how to crochet into the back bump or nub of a chain stitch, please read my notes at the end for some help.

When you crochet, you'll often do your first row into the chain stitches on the top. This project is a little different in that you're going to turn that chain upside down and crochet into the little bump that's on the bottom.

If you're not sure what that bump is, start by making a small chain for practice. Then turn it over. Do you see the little bump sticking out a bit higher than the two normal stitches? That's the bump or nub. It can be a little sneaky to crochet into this stitch, so I like to make my beginning chain a little looser than standard.

Why crochet into this nub? Because, if you do, both worked edges of your crochet will look similar to one another. It makes a very pretty finished look.

(Disclosure: I have no connection to Blippo or Kawaii Box.)

Have fun!
