Ideas worth crafting. Memories worth keeping.
Pinterest has become a central place where I store ideas and inspiration for projects. I love having a virtual pin board. Thanks to Pinterest, a good friend came across a darling toddler scarf she was hoping I could duplicate. The original maker at Little Inspiration provided a tutorial on her blog, only problem… it was for a knit scarf. If you follow my posts, then you know I leave the knitting to my sister Cristina while I master crochet. After some trial and error, and playing with different stitches and hooks, I had a scarf very similar to the original.

Prety good huh?
I was excited to have figured it out with my own pattern in the end. Even down to the bow. I tried to stay close to the same dimensions of the original. I was kicking myself for not having thought of making something like this before! If you knit, you should check out her tutorial along with the amazing photos. I love how the bow serves as a way to secure the scarf, especially since I was hesitant to attach a clasp or button to something a small child would be wearing so close to the neck. The bow is perfect because it allows the scarf to “button” but does not pose a choking hazard as it easily pulls free thru the “bow opening”.
The color combination of cream and gray is unexpected
I will be trying the same pattern in a few other colors. I hope to have some available for the Christmas boutique coming up.
Everyday things can be magical too...
