This crochet children's mod scarf pattern uses cake yarn and pom poms to create an adorable scarf that your littles will love. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
Find Your Caron Cakes Yarn and Pom Pom Makers
If you hadn't guessed yet, this children's sized mod scarf is made out of some Caron Cakes remnants (probably what was left after my Autumn Chill Slouchy Hat) and I think this color combo is so much fun for little ones! But of course you can use whatever worsted weight yarn that you like.
The pom poms are also optional, but recommend them for a few reasons. First, because they are adorable! Second, because they weight the scarf down a bit and help it stay in place. You can make them by hand OR make your life easier and invest in some inexpensive pom pom makers (seriously worth it!).
Crochet this Scarf for Older Children
Remember that scarves could be a strangulation hazard with small children, so use your discretion and consider the age of the recipient of this adorable scarf.
