Hello Kitty Scarf with Pockets


The same person who requested the scarf with pockets loved them and has requested more scarves with pockets! They're really easy to make and are practical too. I've got a lot of projects lined up, including a pink ribbon scarf with pockets for breast cancer awareness, a Hello Kitty afghan, and a queen sized comforter, which will be my biggest project yet.

This scarf uses the same tapestry crochet technique as the SF Giants Scarf, Batman, and Superman Scarf. If you're unfamiliar with tapestry crochet, I would highly recommend looking up how to carry more than two colors for the color changes. It becomes much easier once you get the hang of it, so keep practicing! 

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 Vanna's Choice in Black
1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver in Bright Yellow (you only need a little scrap of yellow. This was just what I had on hand.)
1 skein of Loops & Threads Impeccable Brights in Lippy (pink)

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
hdc = half 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.
