Pinterest Challenge: Pink Crayon Scarf

Welcome to the November Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I'm sharing my Pink Crayon Scarf. When the kiddos headed back to school, I was inspired to create Crochet Pencil Scarves. So I figured why not make a crayon! After searching through Pinterest for patterns for crayon scarves, I decided to just wing it...

I liked the crayons that make up this blanket, and I was pinspired to make my crayon scarf similar to these crayons.

I decided to make my first crayon scarf with pink yarn. The yarn I used for this project is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Pink and Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Black. I got a crayon from my children's crayon box. I love this shade of pink! 99% of the time, I crochet with a Clover hook. That's my favorite crochet hook brand. For this project, I used a size 4.5mm Clover crochet hook.

I used my pink stitch counter to keep track of how many rows I had crocheted. And I always need s cup of coffee or tea to fuel my crochet projects. I usually use one of my favorite Rae Dunn mugs. I've been using my STASH pouch to hold my crochet hooks, scissors, stitch markers, and more.

While working on this scarf, I found a Rae Dunn Crayons desk tray during a shopping trip.

Making the black oval portion took the longest, but I got it done!

Once I finished crocheting the crayon, I crocheted the letters to spell the word CRAYON.

I pinned the letters onto the scarf and sewed them on using a yarn needle.

CRAYON!

This crayon scarf is 5 inches wide and approximately 66 inches long, so it is long enough to wrap around the neck.

I think this scarf would look great with my Betsey Johnon Composition Book Purse.

Now the Pencil Scarf has a buddy! 

Now that I've finished my Pink Crayon Scarf, I want to make a couple more in other colors. You can always follow me on Instagram at @SewCraftyCrochet to see what fun projects I'm working on.
