HAPPY CROCHET SCARECROW PATTERN

It’s Fall Y’all!

For some reason once I saw pumpkins I felt like it needed a side of a cute scarecrow! This applique is great to add on scarfs or make them slightly bigger for coasters! It came together easily in 8 steps and that is how you will find the pattern down below.

I added this Sunflower applique to my Kids Scallop Scarf you can find HERE.

Also combined with the Sunflower Applique Pattern you can find HERE.

This scarecrow measures approximately 5 inches long with the hat sewn on and 4 inches wide.

My tension is average. Not too tight but not loose. Just make sure the hook you use and tension doesn’t create large holes/gaps between the stitches. You want pretty closed stitches in case you sew on to something.

If you do recreate coasters. I would suggest gluing stiffened felt board at the bottom to hold the shape better.

I hope you like today’s pattern and if you recreate this I would love to see it! Tag me on social media!

Step 3 – Nose

Fasten Off and weave in all the ends.

Using the same hat color yarn, sew on the hat slightly above the eyes making sure to cover the knots of the hair.

If you have to trim a bit of hair to make it even.

And there you have a scarecrow!

If you are sewing it to a scarf as I did. Make sure to use the color of the scarf to sew on the applique and insert the needle carefully between the single crochet stitch so you get yarn to sew it on the scarf but not too much that the yarn shows up on the front side of the scarecrow.
