Paint the Town Red (or Pink) Paintbrush Scarves

Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I decided to create a couple paint brush scarves with red and pink "paint" on the tips of the brushes.  I've made several Crochet Pencil Scarves and a Pink Crayon Scarf, and a couple of my Etsy customers are art teachers, and they asked if I'd make a paintbrush scarf, so I finally got around to making a couple. I wasn't able to find a paintbrush scarf crochet pattern, so I just winged it for both scarves.

The yarns I used to create this scarf are Vanna's Choice Black, Vanna's Choice Beige, Vanna's Choice Cranberry, and Red Heart With Love Metallic Silver. I crocheted this scarf with a size G/4mm crochet hook.

This paintbrush scarf has a red tip and a sparkly silver ferrule.

For this pink tipped paintbrush scarf, I used Vanna's Choice PinkVanna's Choice BeigeVanna's Glamour Gold, and Vanna's Choice Chocolate.

I finished this scarf today, and it's approximately 70 inches long and 4 inches wide. I love the sparkly gold ferrule.

This scarf is approximately 75 inches long and 4 inches wide, so it's a great length for wrapping around your neck.

This Paintbrush Scarf is available for sale in my Etsy shop, and it would be an awesome gift for an artist or art teacher!

Get ready to paint the town red (or pink) with a Crochet Paintbrush Scarf!
