About 2 1/2 ounces of Lion Brand Boucle yarn or any slightly bulky yarn (double up worsted weight and see how it drapes, you may have to go up a hook size then.
Size L hook (8.0 mm)
1" diameter shank button with matching thread to sew it on
Tapestry hook for sewing in ends
Size: Mine measured 36" in total length and 3 1/4" wide. Gauge isn't that important.
Stitches used: Ch (chain), sc (single crochet), hdc (half double crochet)
Stitch Pattern: sc, hdc, hdc in same stitch
Using 8.0 mm hook, chain 11
Row 1: 2 hdc in second ch from hook, *sk 2 st and 1 sc, 2 hdc (stitch pattern) in next st* across with a sc in last ch in row. Ch1, turn.
Row 2 - ?: 2 hdc in first st (same as ch 1 st from previous row) and repeat row one until scarf measures about 36" in length (or however long/short you want it to be).
Last row: Ch 1, sc across last row, fo and weave in ends.
Put place scarf on neck and mark placement for where you want the button which will be on the inside part of the scarf. No need for a button hole, the stitch pattern allows for it's own button hole. Securely sew button on, button up and voila!
