    This simple kids winter scarf has a modern and classic design. With the weather getting colder my children needed new winter scarfs. Well it was a perfect excuse to get my hook out and start crocheting. These scarfs are so warm and cozy, my daughters love them!

    Kids scarf description

    The winter kids scarf should fit most children. Saying that it has been tested on children between the ages of 3 and 8 and there is room for growth. The dimensions of the scarf are 6” x 46”. It’s long enough to wear in a variety of ways as you can see from my photos below. It has a nice texture and is finished off with a wavy border.

    How to crochet a classic childs scarf

    The winter kids scarf crochet pattern easy skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches. Additionally you’ll need to know how to work into the front and back posts as well as being able to work into the raw edges for the border. To make the scarf I used lipstick red aran (weight 4) yarn and a 7mm crochet hook. Don’t forget it’s important to remember to do your gauge swatch before starting if you want your scarf to fit.
