From now through Christmas day, we’re featuring a project here on the FaveCraftsBlog, along with a question for you to comment on. From those comments, we’ll pick a daily winner and you’ll receive a Gift from Santa’s Sleigh! How’s that for a great way to celebrate all month long?!
For today’s topic, Favorite Christmas Tradition, I chose a Holiday Scarves Crochet Pattern. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is that there is usually a call for scarves to be donated during the Christmas holiday. So many people are in need of a warm scarf in this cold season, kids among them, and a handmade scarf is more than a necessity for them — it shows that someone was thinking of them and passed along a kindness in this holiday season. So every year, I try to set aside some time to make some scarves to donate. This is a great free crochet scarf pattern — it’s quick and easy to crochet and the yarn isn’t too expensive.
Holiday Scarves Crochet Pattern

Create one of these striped holiday scarves or the whole set. These easy to crochet scarves are festive for the holiday season but understated enough to wear all year long. These scarves would also be perfect free crochet patterns to use for the Special Olympic scarves — just work them in the official colors of Red Heart Super Saver 886 Blue and Red Heart Super Saver 512 Turqua.
