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)

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!

 

 

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.
