I’ve noticed these hair scarves popping up on Pinterest and the stores. Of course, I instantly knew I had to make a crocheted version!

This is a super versatile scarf. Wear it in your hair, either around a ponytail or a bun, or you can tie it around your neck. But my favorite way to use this scarf is to tie it on a bag. I always get compliments on it when I have it tied to my backpack.

I try to keep all of my patterns easy, but this may be the most beginner-friendly patterns I have ever designed! (Yes it’s that easy!!). If you know how to do double crochets you can make this scarf!

The May Scarf is also one of the quickest patterns, you can easily whip one (or two!) of these up in an afternoon.

This is also the perfect stash-busting project. If you have any fingering weight laying around in your yarn collection, this it the perfect pattern for using it up!

I have made several of these scarfs with various yarns in my stash, and I found that it works really well with different kinds of yarn.
