Free crocheted Neck warmer/scarf pattern

I decided to participate in this new Free crochet pattern site. Below is my quick and easy Neck warmer/scarf. Great for beginners and you can work it up in an hour or less. I have not had this pattern tested so if there are any mistakes or you have suggestions for changes please let me know. As always this pattern is free so please do not pass it off as your own. You may use it for personal or commercial use I only ask that you link back to my page. Thank you and Enjoy!

Neck Warmer/Scarf

I hook
Worsted weight yarn
2"-2 1/2" Button
Yarn needle

Stitches used -

  • Chain
  • Single crochet

Row 1: Ch 17, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: Skip first st, sc in next st, * ch 1, skip st, sc in next st * repeat across. Ch 2, turn.
Row 3: Sk first st, sc in ch-1 space, * ch 1, sk st, sc in ch-1 space, * repeat across. Ch 2, turn.

Button hole Rows -

Row 17: Sk st, sc in ch-1 space, ch 1, sk st, sc in ch-1 space, ch 1, sk st, sc in ch-1 sp. Ch 5, skip 5 sts, sc in next ch-1 sp, work pattern to end of row. Ch 2, turn.
Row 18: Work row 3 across using unworked chains from button hole. Ch 2, turn.
Rows 19-104 : Repeat row 3.
Row 105: Work one row of sc in each st across. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Sew the button onto the 16th row from the end so as to make it even with the button hole.

If you need it to be shorter just don't add as many rows. The button hole can also be moved up or down depending on how loose or tight you want it  around your neck. You can also make it skinnier, just make sure that there are an even amount of stitches in order to get the pattern look.

Enjoy your scarf!
