This Crochet Button Scarf Works up Fast
This button cowl could be finished up in just one evening… Say for example when you are watching a marathon session of Call the Midwife or the Voice! Yes and I did exactly that!
The Yarn That is Perfect for a Chunky Crochet Scarf Pattern
To make sure this scarf was extra cozy I used Lion Brand Yarn Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Yarn which is one of my favorites!
This yarn is extremely easy to work with and crochets up fast. Which in my book is always a win-win!
If you haven’t had the luxury of trying this yarn yet then you definitely should put it on your to-do list.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I hope you enjoy the pattern.

You say in instructions to chain 2 at the end of row 2, then you explain chain 1 in first stitch, where does the chain 1 go, I do not know of a way to chain in stitch…please help Krista…
At the beginning of row 2 you need to hdc in the first st, then you chain (like you would at the beginning of a pattern), sk a st, and repeat the chain 1, sk a st combo until the end of the row. Hope this helps!
I’m pretty new to crocheting and I don’t understand how to start row #3. How do you chain 1 in the top of the last HDC from the row before? I thought chains don’t go through stitches? Or do you chain 2, then chain 1 and then HDC in the first stitch? Please help! Thanks!
You chain 2 then work your first st into the last stitch from the row before. Hope this helps!
I love it too, but I’m having trouble understanding row 3. No matter what i do, I seem to end up with less stitches and it gets bunched.
Hi Pam, How many stitches are you ending with? Do you have a picture you could show me?
Hi Krista, I seem to get 13 stitches. The chains look big, and the row looks bunched. It seems to be the skipped stitches, but im not sure what im doing wrong. It’s supposed to be 20, right? I will try to get a picture later today. Thank you!
I love this pattern but what size crochet needle do you use? Thanks!
