Head:  With black, make a magic circle.  Ch 2, 10 dc in magic circle.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  Finish off leaving a long tail.

Ears (make 2):  With black, make a magic circle.  Ch 2, 10 dc in magic circle.  Join with a sl st to 1st dc.  Finish off leaving a long tail.  Sew ears to head with your long tails.  Make sure to tie in your beginning tails tightly so they don’t unravel in the wash.

Sew the entire head and ears onto the opposite end of your scarf from your skirt end.  Make sure you’re sewing on the red side.  The white should just be a peek-a-boo from underneath.  Tie ribbon on.

Nemo Scarf

Nemo Scarf

I thought for a long time on how to represent Nemo.  I wanted a scarf to represent him specifically. I didn’t just want a clown fish. What makes Nemo  special?  His lucky fin. What makes this scarf special?  Lucky fringe.  It’s the little detail that will make Nemo lovers fall in love with this scarf.

Cheshire Cat Scarf

This is by far my most popular scarf. I don’t know if it’s the great colors or the popularity of the character. The Cheshire Cat lends himself to simple but very recognizable motifs. I like it because I don’t have a lot of counting to do. Make sure you work in your loose ends as you go.  It will save you lots of time and headaches in the end.
