The Ballerina Scarfigan Crochet Pattern (Crochet Scarf with Sleeves)
The Ballerina Scarfigan is a scarf with sleeves that is both comfortable to wear and is sure to keep you warm & cuddly now that the weather’s getting colder.
I designed this scarf for my 6 year-old daughter who loves to snuggle up in softness. I thought this would be great for her to wear after Ballet class.
I also wanted to use a simple stitch for the body of the scarf, then add appliqués as embellishments.
I had a wonderful colorwork of Paintbox Yarns (5 color pack) and knew this would be the perfect color combination for this new scarf 🙂

US size 7 (4.5 mm) hook for the scarf body and sleeves,
US size E-4 (3.5) mm hook for the embellishments.

ABBREVIATIONS USED IN PATTERN:
- ch = chain
- sc = single crochet
- dc = double crochet
- MC = Magic Circle

Instructions for scBLO:
To crochet in the back loop of a stitch, insert your crochet hook in the center of the “v” underneath the back loop only instead of under both loops of the “v” and continue the sc stitch as usual.
Instructions for sc2tog:
Single Crochet 2 Together (sc2tog) is a way to decrease your stitches. This means you will be making an item smaller. You join 2 single crochet stitches into one sc stitch. To do this, insert your hook into the stitch and draw up a loop, insert your hook into the next stitch and draw up a loop again. Yarn over then draw through all 3 loops on your hook.
17 stitches & 16 rows in sc = 4” (10 cm) square with a 4.5 mm hook
This scarf is designed for a child. I made this one for my 6 year-old daughter. Size indicated in this pattern is for this child-size only. To adjust sizing for adults, measure horizontally along your back from wrist to wrist while arms are stretched wide open, then subtract the lengths of the sleeves. In my case, length of each sleeve is 15 cm, so deduct 30 cm from total length from wrist to wrist.
Body: 67 cm W x 30 cm H [26.3” W x 11.8” H]
Sleeves: 15 cm x 15 cm (x2 sleeves) [5.9” x 5.9”]
