Hello!! I have another pattern for you. Uber super duper easy, again, the way I like them. My two toddlers asked me for scarves the other day, so I did. I made them and they love them...and so do I.

You need a super bulky.  I chose Lionbrand Hometown which I picked up at the Evil Empire I mean..Walmart.
You will also need a P crochet hook. My daughter is two and my son is four. Hers is shorter(I want to say like 3 ft), and there were leftovers, so I made hers with fringe. My son is 4 and tall, so I made his longer(Like 4 ft).

Super Bulky Yarn (lionbrand hometown)
P crochet hook
tapestry needle for weaving in ends

terms (American)
ch- chain
hdc- half double crochet
BLO -back loop only

Directions for smaller (larger)

Chain 62 (82)
hdc in the 3rd ch from hook and continue with hdc across. 60 (80)

*CH 2 turn (does not count as hdc)
hdc in the BLO of the first stitch and in the BLO of each stitch across.

Repeat * 3 more times. fasten off and weave in ends.

for the fringe, I cut 16 strands about 10" each and fastened them onto the scarf, from the wrong side like this:

Hey Guys!
I've got a little something for you. I'm sure I'm not the inventor of this cloth, but I've got my little recipe for you.

G hook
Worsted cotton (I use my favorite, Peaches & Creme)
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
ch = chain

Ch 25
SC in Ch next to hook, dc in next, *(sc in next, dc in next) Repeat * to end of row.  You should end on a dc.
ch 1 turn
Rows 2-24* (or until square)    *(sc in next, dc in next) repeat * across. ch 1 turn
* MORE LIKE 16 or 17 rows made the square for me. :)
sc border all around entire square, with 3 scs in each corner.

finish off, weave in ends!

As always, you may sell items made from my patterns, but you may not under any circumstances sell my patterns or take credit for them as your own.
