Minion inspired scarf – a crochet pattern for you


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:

5.5mm hook

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.

yarn needle


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 🙂

How to:


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)

OVERALLS (optional):

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.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Great simple scarf thanks

  2. Do you know how much yarn you used for the main color (Red Heart With Love Daffodil)? I want to make this scarf but am not sure how much to buy. Thanks ^_^

    • I do not, I am sorry 😦 I made 3 of them at once and used about 2 skeins of yellow so 1 should be enough (I think)

      • I ended up going with my own pattern but yep, only one skein 🙂 Made a hat from the same skein too. Both were made for an adult, 60″x8″ scarf and earflap hat with arms. Red Heart goes a long way! ^_^

  3. Thank you for sharing! I’m making this right now! 🙂

  4. Turned out great! The only thing I noticed as I went was the turning chain not being in the directions. Thanks for sharing the pattern, my son will love it on Christmas!

  5. Looks cool! Can’t wait to make it for my sons’ girlfriends both age 20. Thank you for the pattern
