Glittery Accent Scarf, free #crochet pattern by Underground Crafter in Loops & Threads Charisma and Payette yarns | This lacy scarf is quick and easy to make. Holding a strand super bulky yarn with a strand of sequin yarn adds a bit of bling. Wear it as an accent scarf year round, or donate it to Handmade Especially for You, a charity that supports women survivors of domestic violence in Central and Southern California.A few months ago, I learned about an organization called Handmade Especially for You. Most charities that accept crochet and knitting donations look for practical projects for all the right reasons. But, let’s be honest. Those same practical projects are sometimes a bit dull to make.

Handmade Especially for You donates comfort scarves to women survivors of domestice violence through partnerships with over 50 shelters and social service organizations in Central and Southern California. Since it doesn’t get too cold in those parts, the scarves should be lacy. And, to lift the women’s moods, they recommend adding in some novelty yarn.

The Glittery Accent Scarf is the creation I came up. It was pretty fun to make (because who doesn’t love sequin yarn?) and it worked up really quickly (because it uses a simple stitch pattern and is worked with two strands of yarn held together).

And, best of all, it meets all the guidelines for donation to Handmade Especially for You. The finished scarf is…

  • Made with a comfortable, soft yarn in a “happy” color,
  • At least 4″ (10 cm) wide (but no wider than 4.5″/11.5 cm), and at least 60″ (152.5 cm) long,
  • Made with an open stitch pattern appropriate for warm weather, and
  • Decorated with a fun yarn (or sequins, faux fur, or ribbon) to make the scarf just a little bit more special for the recipient.

If you’d like to donate two scarves to Handmade Especially for You, the Glimmer Glamour Scarf is another free crochet pattern that would be a great fit with the donation guidelines.
