Lightly block scarf before embellishing.

Blocking scarf – To block scarves use hot iron and kitchen size towel wet. Lay scarf on iron board or hard surface and place wet towel over scarf, lightly press iron on towel. Do not move but just quick press. This steams the scarf and flattens it out so it lays nice. Repeat for full length of scarf. As you steam press be sure you shape if needed. Let dry for at least 15 minutes. If you leave iron on to long or press hard you can ruin scarf.

After scarf has dried glue red pom poms to top of each cupcake using 1 pom pom at joining. Glue multi colored pom poms to pink frosting.

We have had this project on our blog since 2008 but it has recently shot to fame due to its feature on Fuller house the tv series. Kimmy Gibbler wore a scarf almost identical. Both scarfs the Gibbler style scarf featured on the show and our free crochet scarfΒ  were designed by Twinkie Chan. Twinkie designed this pattern for us over 10 years ago and we are very proud to still have this crochet scarf pattern on our blog. We hope you enjoy this version of the scarf as a free pattern.
