Christmas is coming! and it is time to start thinking about those presents we want to make for our family and loved ones. I have young adults who are very into the latest fashions and I too have noticed that one of the latest trends is away from the thick wide scarf that we all grew up with to a small thin scarf that is very long. Working with some yarn that I had bought last year I worked up this scarf in no time at all. It is easy enough for a beginner crocheter as it only uses the double crochet stitch. I have also included an alternate ending just like those crazy movies.
Time to complete: Two evenings of TV if you crochet at an average speed
Near the end of each end make a small bow tying in the jingle bells. This way the jingle bells can be removed for cleaning.

I am crocheting a scarf. How do I stop the fringe from unraveling?
By connie from CA
Find a good stopping point and pull the end of the yarn through your final loop to secure it if you run out of yarn and need to start a new spool, or you are doing a multi-striped scarf. Thread the yarn through the stitches with a plastic needle to hide and protect it from unraveling. Do this at the very end of your project as well when the final length is achieved. Good luck.
I need a fun, quick, and easy crocheted (or knitted) scarf pattern for the holidays. I have tried every kind of pattern and cannot afford to buy new yarn. I have mostly worsted weight.

Why not just crochet a short chain (about 20 inches long) and do either single or double crochet on it for as long as you want the scarf to be? That'll end up with a nice, warm scarf and you won't have to buy any new yarn.
If you have different colors of knitting worsted you can make a wonderful zig-zag scarf. Just make a chain long enough to make one point in the zig-zag with a main color. Then single crochet for 5-10 rows then change colors, and keep changing colors eery 5-10 rows. To finish it, make a tassle and tie it to the point in the zig-zag. I have made these a lot, for myself and for gifts.
