Breast Cancer Awareness Scarf with Pockets


My last few projects have been scarves with pockets, and I'm really liking the practicality of these things! I'm going to have to make some for myself once I finish all the projects in my queue.

This Breast Cancer Awareness scarf uses tapestry crochet to create the design on the pockets. Perfect for any survivor or supporter in your life to keep warm this winter. With only two colors, it's a great project for beginners looking to work on their color changing techniques.

For the main scarf part, I used a random stripe generator for the pattern. I love this app because you can enter in which colors you're using and how wide/narrow you want the stripes to be. It will then spit out a random pattern and you can go from there. It's a great variation to typical stripes and it looks really cool. I've used it on scarves and blankets, and have always loved the results. I wrote what the app generated for me in the pattern below, but feel free to use it for your own scarf and see what it comes up with. My completed scarf ended up being 89 inches long.

You may sell the finished product from this pattern, but please reference and link this post. Please don't claim this pattern as your own or sell the pattern. I'd love to see pictures of your finished product! You can put them up on Ravelry or post it on my Facebook Page.

Materials:
Size I crochet hook (5.50 mm)
Tapestry needle
1 skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love in White
1 skein of Lion Brand Pound of Love in Bubble Gum

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch

Notes for Scarf:
The pockets are made separately and then sewn onto the completed scarf. For the color change, I carried both colors and worked over the color that wasn't being used.

At the end of each row, ch 1 and turn. Change colors as indicated.

Tip: Work over ends at the color changes to avoid weaving in so many ends when complete.
