With all the cold weather, who wouldn’t want a nice crocheted scarf with cute trim? In case you missed them, I’ve been sharing easy gift ideas that you can make in a day or less. We all have limited time but that doesn’t mean you can’t make something handmade for a gift.
If you missed them, I have a tutorial for Rose Sugar Body Scrub, which I ‘ve been using myself and love it. I also made a cute Felted Wool Christmas Pillow. Both of those projects took an hour or less to make.
The project for today is a little more time consuming. I worked on it an hour here and there. It took me about 4 hours total to crochet. I’m don’t crochet that fast so you might be able to complete it in a quicker than that. But I’m going to say for the average person who knows how to crochet this should be able to be completed in about half a day.
I made a video tutorial for all the stitches that will be used in the scarf, just in case you have never crocheted before, but want to give it a try.
