How to Crochet: The Yo Yo Scarf


Get the Free Yo Yo Scarf Pattern Here, and get tips and tricks for how to crochet the Yo Yo Scarf with the video from Marly Bird Here.

One of the most fun parts of doing the videos for Red Heart is being able to look at their MANY FREE PATTERNS and choosing which ones I like and think you would like to know how to make. The hard part is only choosing a few instead of the whole library 🙂 But hey, that’s job security, right?

Well, I don’t know about all of you but I am always looking for a fun little shawlette/scarf to wear during the year. No matter what time of year it is, I need a little something around my neck to beat the chill. Couple that need with the desire to make more things with Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable Yarn and I think I found the perfect pattern!

It’s called the Yo-Yo Scarf by Alessandra Hayden

YouTube Video Notes:

Use markers to make the joining of the yo-yo’s easier.

Also, if you want to make the scarf larger, maybe into more of a shawl, simple join more than the pattern tells you to do and make the size you want. NOTE: if you make it larger you will need more yarn 🙂
