Minnie Mouse Scarf

So you can’t have a Mickey Mouse scarf without a Minnie Mouse.  The elements that shout Minnie to me are polka dots, frilly skirts, bows and a tail.  Have fun crocheting!

Need:

H Hook

12″ Polka Dot Ribbon

Less than 1 skein each of Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in:

Red

White

Black

Body:

With red, Ch 18

Row 1:  In 3rd ch from hook, dc in each ch across.  (16 dc)

Row 2-100:  Ch 2, dc across.  (16 dc)

Row 101 (a):  Ch 1, in front loops only, 3 sc in each dc across.  (48 sc)

Row 102 (a):  Ch 1, 3 sc across.   Finish off.   (144 sc)

Row 101 (b):  Attach white yarn.  Ch 1, in back loops only, 3 sc in each dc across.  (48 sc)

Row 102 (b):  Ch 1, 3 sc across.  Finish off.  (144 sc)

With black, ch 15.  Sc into the middle of the scarf on the white side.  Continuing along the black ch, sl st into each ch.  Finish off.  Separate the fibers at the end of the yarn.

Icon:

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.

Polka Dots:  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.  Using the long tail, sew onto the body of the scarf randomly.  Again, make sure you’re sewing on the red side.

Congratulations!
