Anyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with movies.

After a recent re-watch of Adventures in Babysitting, I decided to take my love and admiration of Elisabeth Shue one step further and design a scarf inspired by that long stripey number she wears in the 1987 comedy classic.

This 7’ long scarf is worked entirely in Tunisian crochet, Tunisian knit stitch and Tunisian purl stitch, specifically. The written pattern includes step-by-step instructions, photo tutorials, and a link to two video tutorials to help get you started. And it’s all FREE on my blog!

-8.0 mm Tunisian crochet hook
-Roughly, a total of 520 yards of worsted weight yarn divided like so:
-Big Twist: 270 yards
-Red Heart Super Saver: 155 yards
-Red Heart Classic: 95 yards
