Buttonhole Scarflet in Red

Buttonhole Scarflet in Red

Everybody, get exctited, because I have finished my first crochet pattern! I’m calling it my Red Buttonhole Scarflet. For clarification purposes, a “scarflet” is essentially a short scarf, and therefore, less likely to drag around and catch on things. Once I found out that people actually do that, I was so excited! I may never make a full-length scarf for myself again, they always feel too long and bulky for my taste.

I made that button! :D

 

This pattern is more of what people call a ‘recipe’ than counted-out directions. That means that you can make it with whatever yarn and hook combination you have handy. Mine is made with Caron Simply Soft and a G hook. Also: I totally made that button. Without further ado, I give you:

Buttonhole Scarflet
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Abbreviations:
Dc=Double Crochet
Ch=Chain Stitch
Sl=Slip Stitch
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  1. To begin, make a slipknot and chain enough to wrap loosely around your neck, plus about a hand-length (from the tip of your middle finger to your wrist).
  2. Ch 2 more inches onto this length of chain, to make your buttonhole. If you have a specific button in mind, this may vary, so to be sure, keep the button on hand, to test the chain’s length for your buttonhole. (All you have to do is fold the chain over, and see if the length you’ve made for a buttonhole is sufficient, try to put the button through it, like you would when it’s a completed buttonhole.)
  3. Sl the end of your chain to a point where the loop created is a suitable size for your button; Dc 1 in each ch until the end of the chain. Ch 1, turn.
  4. Dc in each dc across. Then dc around the buttonhole, not into any of the loops of the chain, but stitching around the chain as a whole, to make a smooth buttonhole. Dc until the entire loop is covered, and there are no gaps in the loops around the chain, like in the picture below.

Remember this?

5. Dc in each st (the other side of the original chain), using all remaining loops to end. Ch 1, turn.

 

6. *[ Dc in each stitch until you get to the buttonhole. Dc in each st around buttonhole, then dc in each st of other side across to end. Ch 1, turn.]  Repeat from * 2 or 3 times, until stitches around the button arch begin to tighten and threaten to curl.

 

7. *[On next row, dc in each st until buttonhole; continue with 1 dc in each st up button arch until you reach the curve. Dc around curve, evenly spacing 3 increases throughout. Dc in each stitch down the side and across to end. Ch 1, turn.] Repeat from * 2 more times.

 

8. On next row, dc in each st until buttonhole; continue with 1 dc in each st up button arch until you reach the curve. Dc around curve, evenly spacing 4 increases throughout. Dc in each stitch down the side and across to end. Ch 1, turn.

 

9. On next row, dc in each st until buttonhole; continue with 1 dc in each st up button arch until you reach the curve. Dc around curve, evenly spacing 5 increases throughout. Dc in each stitch down the side and across to end. Ch 1, turn.

 

10. On next row, dc in each st until buttonhole; continue with 1 dc in each st up button arch until you reach the curve. Dc around curve, evenly spacing 4 increases throughout. Dc in each stitch down the side and across to end. Ch 1, turn.

 

11. On next row, dc in each st until buttonhole; continue with 1 dc in each st up button arch until you reach the curve. Dc around curve, evenly spacing 2 increases across. Dc in each stitch down the side and across until 1 stitch remains. Make 3 dc in last st to turn corner, and begin working across the end of your rows.

 

12. Make 2 dc in each row across. Finish off, weave in ends.

 

13. Wrap the scarflet around your neck as you would when you’ll wear it, placing the buttonhole where you want the button to close the scarflet. Attatch the button where the buttonhole would lay when wrapped around your neck, and weave in any loose ends from the button.

And that’s it! Hope you enjoy. :)

    I adore this pattern and am about to get started on it with the same yarn & hook you used (Bonus!) for myself. I didn’t see any disclaimers or anything, so I wondered how you’d feel about me selling finished items made from your pattern. I’ll happily link to the pattern from my page, too.

    If you sell stuff from this pattern, just give me credit for the pattern. Linking to the pattern sounds good to me. :)
