Crochet Banana Scarf

Friends, I have to start by pointing out how incredibly cold it got in Toronto. Like, -20C eyelashes are frozen together and my face hurts cold. On top of the frigid quality in the air, it’s also a little gloomy. Naturally this weather makes me want to snuggle into something warm which is where this post is headed. When you read the words Crochet Banana Scarf you might think the scarf is yellow like a banana but you might also think, the scarf is shaped like a banana. And in today’s post, you’d be right on both counts because I have created a bright yellow scarf shaped like a banana! Obviously this is both to keep me warm and to provide me with a burst of happy banana yellow colour.

Crochet Banana Scarf

Materials

-worsted weight yarn, approx 380 metres/200 grams. I used Patons Decor wool/acrylic blend in Mimosa

-small amount of brown worsted weight yarn.

-5.50 mm crochet hook.

Abbreviations (US)

ch – chain

sl st – slip stitch

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

inc – increase (2 sts in same st)

dec – decrease (dc 2 tog)

sk – skip

Notes

Pattern is worked in rounds with slip stitch to join. I found it helpful to place safety pins or stitch markers in my middle increase/decrease stitches to remind me where to increase/decrease. Don’t worry too much about the exact number of stitches as this scarf is easily adjustable – just remember to make increases on both ends, increases/decrease in the middle to get a banana shape. As always, if you notice any mistakes I would love to know!

  1. I find this scarf very a-peeling! (I’m so, so sorry – could NOT resist a banana pun). Seriously, this scarf is all kinds of cute…makes me wish it wasn’t so warm in Florida.

  2. How Cute! My teenage son dressed up as a banana for Halloween last year and has since been called Banana Man. Think he’s getting a new scarf soon…. Thanks!
