The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Scarf
To design the Andy Button Crochet Scarf pattern I used one of my favorite yarns Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice in Linen which is a worsted weight yarn that is soft and durable. I am pretty sure I have every color in my stash! Well, I wish I did!
Learn more about Vanna’s Choice in my free guide about this yarn and you’ll see just why I love it so much. This yarn is perfect for a scarf because of how easy it is to take care of. It can be washed repeatedly and will still look like new.
When you start crocheting this you are going to love how fast it works up and how perfectly it pairs with the Andy Hand Warmers that I also designed. You’ll be set for winter with this cozy crocheted set.
This crochet scarf is one of my favorite crochet patterns to date and I hope you enjoy making it as much as I enjoyed designing it! Scroll on down for the free pattern.
Happy Andy Scarf Making!
Crochet Andy Button Scarf Pattern
Skill Level: Easy
- Size J crochet hook 6.00 mm (or whatever hook is needed for gauge)
- Yarn needle
- Less than 340 yards of Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn in Linen (or any worsted weight (4) yarn)
- Two 1″ buttons (I used coconut shell buttons)
- We used these: Coconut Shell Buttons
- hdc = half double crochet
- ch = chain
- bl = back loop
- st = stitch
- sk = skip
Gauge for Ribbing
- Each row should be approx. 3″ wide x .70 high so 8 hdc’s for every 3″
Gauge for Main Pattern
- gauge is 12 hdc’s for every 4″
- Approx. 64″ circumference & 6″ width (see how to change size below)
- If you’d like to make this scarf longer keep crocheting the ribbing to whatever length you’d prefer and follow pattern as written
- If the gauge is not followed it will either be too big or too small. Try to follow gauge as closely as possible.
- Written in standard US terms
There are a few different parts of this scarf, all of which come together to make the Andy Scarf at the end.
FOUNDATION ROW: ch 9, hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in remaining ch’s across, turn (8)
ROW 1: ch 1, working in the bl hdc, bl hdc in remaining ch’s across, turn. (8)
ROW 2- 95: repeat row 1. (8)
Do not fasten off yarn, ch 1, see scarf pattern below on how to continue.
Working along long side of ribbing, going back along the edge of the ribbing you just worked up.
To make it even I did 3 hdc’s for every 2 rows of ribbing. Starting with 2 hdc’s in the first row. ending with 1 hdc in the last row.
ROW 1: do 145 hdc’s in evenly across long side of ribbing, turn. (145)
ROW 2: ch 1, hdc in the bl, hdc in the bl of every st across, turn. (145)
ROW 3-7: repeat row 2. (145)
FINISHING: If you do not want buttons on your scarf you can fasten off here and weave in loose ends with yarn needle. If you want buttons do not fasten off yarn, ch 1, turn your work to short side of scarf, see pattern below on how to continue.
Button Holes (optional)
ROW 1: hdc, hdc, sk 1 st, ch 1, hdc in next 10 hdc, sk 1 st, ch 1, hdc, hdc . (16)
ROW 2: ch 1, hdc, hdc once in every st across. (16)
FINISHING: attach buttons onto other end of scarf that doesn’t have the button holes you just made evenly, so they will attach to the holes properly about 1″ from edge of scarf.
Then weave in the loose ends throughout scarf with yarn needle.
