Another Twinkie Chan inspired Scarf for my Thrifty Christmas gifts. This one is a Candy Button design I made for my younger, 6-year-old cousin. I've been playing with all sorts of ways to make different shapes and designs with crochet but this was pretty straightforward.

I started by making the white paper, with my trusty red-heart Yarn (I told you it was a thrifty year) and estimated the length. I read that children's scarves are 40'-46' inches typically so I roughly went off of that keeping in mind I'd be adding fringe (a first). After I knit the entire white "paper" part I started on my bobble "buttons" - if anyone has a suggestion on bobbles, I'm all ears, my fingers are STILL sore. Lastly I added on my fringe which for my first time I am thrilled with!

And here is my finished Product:



Thanks to my trusty teddy-bear model!

As always, Comments, Questions, and Suggestions are welcome! As a beginner I could really use some pointers!

I am a teacher and a mom, and I am always crafting things as gifts for my kids and students.  I have NEVER EVER seen a scarf like that and I am going to keep it in mind to make for next year's class (too late now).  That scarf is awesome!

So cute! I could tell what it was right away, great job! I used to love those candies when I was little but I tried some earlier this year and thought they were gross, guess taste definitely changes as you get older Smiley

Of course the Snozberries taste like Snozberries Cheesy lol

I'm glad you all like it, like I said I''m just starting out so I was really nervous about posting but I'm glad I did! I wrapped up this scarf last night and put a tag on it that says "Olde Tyme Candies" and tapes a package of the actual Candy Buttons on there so she gets a treat as well as something useful. But I remember not liking the pink ones myself :/

Does anyone know if they're supposed to be certain flavors?
