I made this for my 7 year old niece for Christmas.  My fiancé and I are both scaling back on presents this year, but when I saw this pattern in a magazine, I knew I had the perfect present for her.  Hopefully, she will love it.  Do 7 year olds even like scarves?  I'm tempted to make one for myself.  I had a lot of fun making it and it's my first real project apart from learning all my stitches.  Comments are always welcome  Merry Christmas to all!  Cheesy

It's really cute!  I bet she'll love it - especially when she gets cold and thinks of you!

This is pretty awesome. If I received this as a 7 year old, I would still be wearing it now Smiley

Well, I've never owned/used a scarf, so maybe that's why my first thought is a bit... "outside the box", but would it be horribly wrong to say that I see an awesome 'toy chain' here? She could leash her favorite plush puppy to her wrist, doorknob, etc. I remember I used to tie ribbon to my any of my stuffed animals with collars and prance/walk them around the house.  Cheesy

That said, I also love it as a scarf. Do they still do paper chains for the holiday countdowns for kids? This'll remind her of those and the warm fuzzies from the holidays can last a bit longer then. Smiley

What a great way to use up all those leftover small balls of yarn. Im thinking this would also be cool for a teen (which I have a few), only done in their school colours. Thanks for sharing!

I think this scarf is FABULOUS! Especially for a 7 year old. I wish I had seen this before giving a lace patterned scarf to my 5 year old niece for Christmas. I am so going to copy this!!

What a fun scarf! Another reason to want to learn to crochet... I may have to add this to my to-do list for next holiday season!

This is too cute.  I am starting to learn crochet and would love a tutorial for this scarf.  You could make the links a little smaller and them into a belt.  I think that would be really cool.

Thanks for sharing!

What stitch did you use? How did you fasten the ends together?

I love this, it's so cute... you could still do this instead of the original paper chain for holiday decorations too, how cute would this look on a tree or your mantle? It's like a new twist on homemade.  I might want to do this for my tree next year!  Guess I should start now, huh? Smiley

I was thinking the same thing!  It's also a great way to use up leftover yarn.

I love it!  It looks like a great way to use up all my odds and ends scraps of acrylic yarn from other projects.

This would make a great teacher present at the end of year too! I was thinking of going with Amigurumi Apple pencil holders, but this is way cooler!

Very cool!! Do you just crochet in the round to make each "link?

I like the idea of making these as a christmas tree garland.  This year we had an actual paper-chain garland on our tree.

I was thinking for a scarf, it might also be really cute to make a scarf that has maybe three strands of miniature crocheted chains stitched together somehow at the ends.  It would cover the neck a bit more and you'd still have the great paper chain feel.

Thanks guys for all the positive feedback!  She really seemed to like it, the little fashionista she is. 

Made really simply, used a single crochet and wove all the ends in.  Each paper link was made individually, which could be a little frustrating at times, because I would forget to link them together.  So there was a lot of ripping back in this project, but really happy with how it came out. 

I got the pattern from Interweave's Accessories magazine that came out last fall.  Lots of great ideas in there!
