Why choose one color when you can have them all? This Rainbow Scarf Crochet Pattern works up quickly, is super colorful and will definitely make you smile. The pattern is very easy and you can complete it within no time at all so it makes a great gift.
This pattern is similar to my One Skein Crochet Scarf, in that we only need a single ball of yarn. No color changes like I did in this Rainbow Blanket Pattern. But the end result is still spectacularly colorful thanks to the multicolor yarn you use.
International Crochet Month is a celebration of everything crochet, so for the International Crochet Month Blog Hop, I’m crocheting rainbows- because we all know how inspired I am by rainbow art!

How long should a child’s scarf be?
This scarf measures approx 38 inches long. A child’s scarf should measure between 30 to 60 inches long depending on the height of the said child. We are all on the shorter side in our house so 38 inches was a good length.
