Free Crochet Pattern-- Polar Bow Tie Scarf

I just can't get enough of this Lion Brand Go For Faux yarn. Besides the softness of this yarn, you wouldn't believe the warmth it brings. In fact, I wore this scarf around my house all week (my family says I'm cold-blooded cause I'm always complaining about being cold).
The Go For Faux yarn can be tricky though if you are not careful. A stitch can be easily skipped so really make sure you use of your fingers and feel for your following stitches.
When this yarn first appeared on the Lion Brand website, I was absolutely thrilled. I bought a couple skeins and after the yarn arrived, I went right back to the website to buy some more.

The design for this scarf is made for beginners. Double crochet is worked throughout the whole pattern with the exception of chaining a "keyhole" on one end of the scarf. This "keyhole" is where you slip in the other end of your scarf to secure your scarf in place. It's a very simple and practical design. A child size pattern is included for your little ones and truly, it is simple enough for them to put it on on their own.

If you don't like any of these colors that's okay too. Because, guess what? Lion Brand carries more of these wonderful faux fur yarn in different colors. Just pick your favorite and let's get crocheting.

Materials

-2 skeins of Lion Brand Yarn Go For Faux Baked Alaska (or 1 skein in Pink Poodle for child size)
-9mm hook
-tapestry needle
-2 stitch holderslint roller 

Abbreviations

ch- chain
dc- double crochet

Gauge

Every 7 sts and 4 rows is 4”.

Measurements

Adult size: 40” long and 6” wide

Child size: 26” long and 4.25” wide

Notes

The chain 2 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.

I highly recommend using a stitch holder to mark the first dc in each row because the stitches can get hard to see.

Due to the nature of this yarn, the stitches are difficult to see. Use your fingers to feel for the next stitch.

The two-tone Polar Bow Tie Scarf that is visible at the top was made with both Baked Alaska and Pink Poodle. If you plan to make the two-tone colored scarf, switch your color at the beginning of row 4 for the adult size and row 3 for the child size.
