Today is the first day of the Scarf Drive. This is the third event of the Crochet Charity Drive.
So, what is it?
18 designers bringing 18 brand new patterns, so you can make them and donate them to give someone a little handmade love and comfort! There is no designated donation place, you donate to the place(s) of your choosing.
In the Fall of 2015, I started a Crochet Mitten Drive where 15 designers came together to make 15 brand new patterns, so that we could donate mittens to those in need. It went very well and this made me want to do more!
I'm so excited to present the first scarf pattern in this Crochet Charity Drive event! At the end of this pattern you will find a list of the other bloggers and when you can get their pattern.
If you're finding this pattern outside of the event, but would like to join in on the fun, click HERE!
Inspired by the Gilmore Girls whacky sense of style and love of scarves.
This scarf is the perfect beginner project. It can easily be made in as little as one color!
HERE'S HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN:

sk = skip
*Beginning ch-1 does not count as a stitch
*This scarf can be made using any yarn weight. This will change the width and length of the scarf.
*Scarf shown was made using Red Heart Anne Geddes
in Coral, Tangerine, Bumble, Grass, Jam, and Nighty-night.
Row 1: Ch 14, (sc,dc) in 2nd ch from
hook, sk next ch *(sc,dc), sk 1* across, sc in last ch, turn
Row 2: Ch 1, (sc,dc) in 1st st, sk next,
*(sc,dc), sk 1* across, sc in last st, turn
Rows 103-104: Repeat 2
Rows 105-106: Repeat 2
Rows 107-108: Repeat 2
Rows 109-110: Repeat 2
Rows 113-114: Repeat 2
Rows 115-116: Repeat 2
Rows 117-118: Repeat 2
Rows 119-120: Repeat 2
Rows 123-140: Repeat 2
Rows 201-202: Repeat 2
Rows 203-220: Repeat 2. Fasten at the end of row 220.
*Cut 6 - 14" strands of each color.
Separate into 6 groups with 1 of each color.
Fold each group in half and thread the looped end through the indicated stitch, thread the tails through the looped end, and pull tight. This creates a tassel- like fringe.
Place one fringe in each corner stitch and one in the center stitch on each end of scarf. (As Shown in Photo Below)
*Hide all strings.
