Crochet Lego Blocks Scarf

The fun and interest in building and creating with LEGO's can follow a kid right into adulthood. I know a guy (not the guy in the photos) with a huge collection and though now without much time with career and other responsibilities, is still, unashamedly, an enthusiast. 

This LEGO scarf was a gift for Abbey's boyfriend and my son-in-law bravely modeled it for me before I gave it to Ryan.
Thinking how I might create a LEGO-looking scarf, I remembered my mom teaching me the popcorn stitch.  I fiddled a bit and finally decided making each brick with eight popcorn's and adding a couple of rows between each so they would stand out. I wanted this scarf to have a masculine appeal and chose gray for the trim
It's a great yarn stash-buster project too.

Using the popcorn stitch

(I have also included instructions (below) for a child-sized LEGO scarf that is thinner and shorter)

Crochet Hook H or I (whichever you feel most comfortable using)
Yarn: medium weight such as Vanna's Choice or Red Heart Super Saver
Colors: Choose whatever colors you want for each brick and as many different colors as you like plus a contrasting color for trim.

Chain 15. 

ROW 1
Single crochet in each chain across (14). Chain two and turn. 

ROW 2 (Making FRONT facing popcorn clusters)
*1 double crochet in each of the next 2 single crochets.

5 double crochets in the next single crochet. 

Drop the loop from your crochet hook. 

Insert your hook from front to back under the top two loops of the first double crochet of the group

Insert hook through the dropped loop; yarn over and pull through the stitch. Chain 1*.
One Forward-Popping popcorn complete.

 Rep between *Asterisks* to end of row. Chain 2 turn

ROW 3

*Hdc in next 2 dc's. hdc in chain 1 stitch of previous row popcorn*. Repeat across.  Hdc in last 2 stitches.  Chain 2, turn 

ROW 4
repeat row 2 but chain 1 instead of 2 at end of row.

ROW 5

Single crochet in each stitch and chain 1 at top of each popcorn cluster, across (15) At end of row, change to gray; chain 1

ROW 6
Sc  in each sc across. Chain 1; turn  (14)

ROW 7
Repeat row six,changing to next block color at the end of the row.

ROW 8
Sc in each stitch across (14)

ROW 9 (Making BACK facing popcorn clusters) These are the same as front facing popcorn clusters but you insert crochet hook from back to front this time.

*1 double crochet in each of the next 2 single crochets.

5 double crochets in the next single crochet. 

Drop the loop from your crochet hook. 

Insert your hook from back to front under the top two loops of the first double crochet of the group

Insert hook through the dropped loop; yarn over and pull through the stitch. Chain 1.*
One Backward-popping popcorn completed.

 Rep between *Asterisks* to end of row. Chain 2 turn

ROW 10
repeat ROW 3

ROW 11
Repeat row 4

ROW 12
repeat row 5

Continue crocheting blocks and gray rows until desired length of scarf is reached.

EDGING
With gray, crochet a row of single crochet spaced evenly around the outside edges of the scarf. To make the corners turn nicely, work 3 single crochet in each corner.

FRINGE
Add fringe as desired

Lego Blocks Child-Size Scarf
The difference from the adult version of this LEGO scarf is that the brick consists of three popcorn clusters in each row instead of four. Follow the above pattern but begin with a chain 12 rather than chain 15 and each row will have 11 stitches . Continue until the scarf reaches desired length.

Your son-in-law makes a great model. That scarf is great. How fun to have a Lego scarf.
Now I'm wondering if that big bucket of Lego's my son had is still in his closet?

What a classy looking scarf! My son-in-law is a "Legos" fan, and I know this would be his style. You have a handsome model!

My twin brother and I turn 50 next month - we loved playing with legos as kids and now he is an architect. A perfect gift to tie childhood memories in with adulthood. Thanks for the pattern.
