For the girl scarf I used this One Skein Scarf pattern. The yarn is Red Heart in Pink Camo. Instead of 201 chains I did 124+3 to turn to make it a more appropriate length. This came out to about 48 inches long and 5 inches wide. It's thinner and pretty stretchy so I feel it could be wrapped nicely. It came out really cute I think. I finished this one in the airport and got a very nice compliment on it. I'd say this took about 2 hours to make.
For the boy scarf I based it off this Simple Scarf except that I made mine 15 double crochet across since it is for a smaller kid. I used a skein of I Love This Yarn in Peacock Ombre. Since the ribbed area is a bit denser than the body of the scarf, the center is decreased to 13dc across until the other end where it widens back up to 15 for the other end's ribbing. This scarf is about 48 inches long and 6 inches wide. Since it was a little thicker, I'd say this one took about 3.5 hours.
For the youngest girl we wanted to make a baby blanket for her. I needed to have enough yarn left over from each of the siblings skein to get around the blanket for edging, hence the smaller scarves. We bought 4 skeins of Sincerely by Purl Essence baby yarn in Pastel Pink. I used the Simply Square blanket pattern by Lion Brand, and when done did two rows of edging, one in each of the variegated yarns. The pink blanket without the edging measures 44" on each side which is pretty big.

The next row around makes the shells. Slip stitch into the center of the three sc's then *do 5 dc in the chain 3 space, skip one sc and slst in the center of the next set of 3 sc*, continue around. I barely had enough yarn for this row, so be careful if using leftover skeins for a contrasting border. The opposite corners will be the same, either two shells on the corner or one at the corner, but there are two different corners from your setup in the first row.
