The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Scarf

For this simple crochet scarf pattern, I used Loops & Threads from Michaels Stores since it is so soft and affordable. You could use any bulky 5 yarn you have in its place and it would work just as well!

I suggest Lion Brand Hometown or Thick & Quick as a good replacement if you don’t happen to have a Michaels nearby.

  • Finishing: Fasten off and weave in loose ends with a yarn needle, or leave a 12″ piece to attach buttons, see below (optional)

Attaching Buttons to The Scarf

  • (optional)
  • (you can use the 12″ piece of extra yarn or sewing thread to attach)
  • (button holes are not needed because of the open stitches of the scarf)

I placed my scarf flat like an upside-down U and placed the buttons on the inner left-hand side about 2 inches apart. If you want to wear it like the picture you would put it on your neck with the 2 long ends down your back, wrap the left scarf tail around your neck to the right, and the right scarf tail to your left and secure with the buttons.

There isn’t any wrong spot to put them and they can be secured any way you wish. I would also suggest if you aren’t sure about where to place the buttons put the scarf on how you would prefer to wear it and then figure out the best spot for the buttons to be placed.

    Thank you for sharing this pattern

  2. What other soft yarns can you use and not the bulky yarns

    1. Hi Kathy,

      You could use any yarn you’d prefer but if you pick a non-bulky yarn the pattern will turn out smaller than written. 🙂

    Hello Krista is this US or uk version,hope to hear from you soon

  4. Krista
    Love the pattern in this scarf. Do you have a hat in the same pattern ?

    1. Hi Sue,
      Thank you for the kinds words! I do not have a hat pattern at this time but maybe in the future! 🙂

  5. Hi Krista! I came across your pattern on allfreecrochet . com. Thanks for sharing. Your scarf is beautiful. I have two large dark brown buttons left over from another project and I’m thinking a pumpkin colored bulky yarn (shopping time LOL). I’ll post a pic up on twitter and tweet you when I’m finished.
