Recently I was asked to make scarves to match the minion hats I had crocheted before Christmas. I had never made a scarf before but I can never turn down a challenge. I looked for inspiration and in the end they turned out ADORABLE! As in I-want-one-for-myself adorable! Each has their own little personality and they are just too cute for words! I would love to share how I made it with you all 🙂 I have never written a pattern before, I struggle just FOLLOWING patterns, so bear with me 😉
So here’s what they look like
Materials I used:
Yellow, blue, black yarn for the scarf and white, brown and grey for the eyes/mouth. I used Red heart ‘with love’ yellow yarn, it is so soft, it is my favorite. The rest was Bernat brand.
And I can’t forget the ridiculous amount of coffee I consume while crocheting 😉
NOTE: These are child sized scarves, they measured about 7” by 48-50”. I am slightly over 5′ tall and they would have worked for me 🙂
Start with blue and chain 22
1: Double crochet on the second chain from hook and in every chain (20); turn
2-10: Double crochet accross
11:Switch to yellow and double crochet across
12-20:Double crochet accross
21: Switch to black and double crochet accross
22: Double crochet accross
23: Switch back to yellow and double crochet across
24-68: Double crochet across
69:Switch to black and double crochet across
70: double crochet across
71:Switch to yellow and double crochet across
72 to 80: Double crochet across
81: Switch to blue and double crochet across
82 to 90: Double crochet across and fasten off.
(please use your judgement as my math may be wrong)
1: With blue yarn attach on the 5th blue stitch (look at the photo for reference) and double crochet 12. Turn.
2: Double crochet 12 and chain 6 at the end. Sew on as show in the photo. With blue yarn chain 6 on the other side. attach as shown in the photo.
The eyes will depend on the size/whether you want 1 or 2
(with black yarn)
1: Make a magic ring and single crochet 6 in the circle. Join.
2:Switch to brown and do 2 double crochet in each single crochet. Join.
3: Switch to white and do 2 double crochet in each stitch. Join.
(if doing 1 big eye do another round with white, 1 double crochet in 1 stitch and 2 in the next all the way around)
4: Switch to grey and do 1 single crochet in each stitch. Join and fasten off.
1: Make a magic circle. (double crochet 2, chain 1) x6. Join and sew on a G (for Gru).
Now all you have to do is make a mouth (however you would like, I also made a smile), attach some black yarn for hair and sew on every piece where they belong.
You can give both sides the same expression or different ones, completely up to you 🙂
Hopefully this all made sense, please share any errors you may find so i can fix them or any concerns regarding this pattern.
