Sandworm Scarf Crochet Pattern

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while, inspired by Beetlejuice, to make a crochet sandworm scarf. I don’t know what it is but there’s just something about those black and white stripes that I can’t resist. If you’re a fan of this look keep scrolling for the sandworm scarf crochet pattern.

Initially I envisioned the scarf as being tubular and worked in rounds. But after making a few experimental prototypes I realized this would be so much better as a flat scarf. The tubular version was too thick and would result in an oversized scarf, which is not the look I was going for. However, I am holding on to that tubular idea for a different project.

Assembly

Sew the yellow eyes to the inner head and the red eyes to the outer head. Align the top and bottom parts of the outer head so the inner head sticks out and sew. Weave in any ends and your sandworm scarf is done!
