Halloween Scarf CAL (Crochet-Along) Part 1 – Pumpkin!

Halloween Scarf CAL (Crochet-Along) Part 1 – Pumpkin!

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links; for more details, please see my Disclosure Policy here.

I’m happy to present to you this Halloween Scarf Crochet-Along that I’ve been working on since the summertime! I wanted to design something that anyone could wear – kids, adults, boys, girls, etc. – that captured the spooky goodness of Halloween! The entire scarf is made up of four frightfully fun characters – a Pumpkin, Ghost, Bat, and Cat. These characters are easy to make and super cute to wear! Another great feature is that each character is double-sided; so if the scarf gets twisted around (and they always do) you don’t have to worry about a “wrong” side showing.

I’ll be releasing the scarf one character at a time here on my blog, so be sure to check back often to crochet more characters with me and complete your scarf!

Ready to get started with this ghoulishly good crochet-along? Then grab your hooks and your Pumpkin Spice coffees and let’s go!

Supplies:

Yarn Needle
Scissors
Red Heart Super Saver in:

*NOTE! I am in love with the “Pumpkin” colorway of Red Heart Super Saver! It is a Halloween staple, in my opinion. Right now, you can get a “Jumbo” skein from Amazon for less than $6 – that’s enough to make an entire pumpkin patch!
