Valentines Day Gnome Scarf

If you've visited my blog or Instagram before, you might have noticed that I've crocheted a few Gnome Scarves with different themes/color schemes. Well, I'm back with another one! This time I've created a Gnome Scarf for Valentine's Day.  Like my other Gnome Scarves (Christmas Gnome Scarves, Halloween Gnome Scarf, Fall Gnome Scarf), this scarf was created using the Fall Gnome Scarf pattern by Heidi Yates/Snappy Tots. This pattern is so fun and can be made with a variety of color combinations. 

SUPPLIES:
I decided that I wanted this scarf to be light blue, pink, and white. As always, I'm trying to use up my yarn stash, so I searched my yarn stash for Caron Simply Soft Robin's EggCaron Simply Soft Strawberry, and Caron Simply Soft White. I found four small balls of the Caron Simply Soft Robin's Egg. I only ended up using two balls, so I still have two left. Last year, I used up 69 skeins of yarn, and this year, I hope to use up even more. 
 
After I crocheted with the  Caron Simply Soft Robin's Egg yarn for about 30 inches, I switched to Caron Simply Soft Strawberry yarn.

I crocheted stripes with the Caron Simply Soft Strawberry and Caron Simply Soft White yarn.  Caron Simply Soft Strawberry is one of my favorite shades of pink.

I crocheted until the scarf reached about 60 inches. Next, I crocheted the fun embellishments to create the gnomes on the ends of the scarf.

I crocheted the noses with Caron Simply Soft Light Country Peach. I used the pink and blue yarns to create the hat brims for the gnomes. Next, I made the hearts and a rose with Caron Simply Soft Harvest Red yarn. I used the Small Rosette pattern by See Jenn Do to create the rose. I made a pink candy heart and stitched the word LOVE on it. And I made a white patch and a blue patch. 

Before sewing on the embellishments, I added the gnomes' beard and braids with Caron Simply Soft White yarn.

Finally, I sewed on the hearts and rose and patches using a yarn needle.

The scarf is complete! This scarf is approximately 65 inches long and 4¼ inches wide. 

This scarf is currently available in my Etsy shop. 💘

Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my Valentine's Day Gnome Scarf, which I'm sharing for the February Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of the Sustainable Craft Challenge Blog Hop (hosted by Julie @ Sum of Their Stories) is to create a sustainable/eco-friendly craft project. This month's theme is Love, and since Valentine's Day is next week, I couldn't resiste creating a Valentine's Day themed scarf.  I created this fun and unique scarf with yarn I already had in my stash. Crochet is considered slow fashion, which is more sustainable/eco-friendly than fast fashion. Anyhoo, I hope you'll visit the other participant's eco-friendly creations that were made with lots of Love below! ↓

  3. I am in love with this adorable Valentine's day gnome scarf. From the colors you used to the embellishments...it is just so cute! I have only crocheted a small amount...would you say this is a more advanced crochet project or do you think beginners could do it? I really want to give it a try! Also, where did you get that fun yarn holder?

    1. Thanks! I think a beginner could crochet this scarf. The Snapy Tots pattern are usually pretty easy to follow and written clearly. There aren't any complicated stitches involved. So I recommend giving it a try! And I picked up the teacup yarn bowl at Hobby Lobby. I love it!

  5. This is so cute! I love the little embellishments that you added to it! The way you unraveled the yarn for the gnome's beard makes it look even cuter. Pinned!
