Button Scarf

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


20 sts = 9” [23 cm] in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


With MC, cast on 20 sts.

Row 1 (wrong side) K 1, (p 3, k 2) 3 times, p 3, k 1.

Row 2 Knit.

Repeat Rows 1-2 until piece measures approximately 60” [152.5 cm].

Bind off all sts in pattern.

With CC and crochet hook, work 1 round of single crochet around all edges of Scarf.

Sew buttons randomly on both ends of Scarf as desired.

Button Scarf Reviewed by Jane Schaefermeyer on 2010-09-27 ****
I'm still in the process of knitting this scarf. After completing about 30 rows, I found it was rolling inward. Since I'm a beginner, I did a little research online and found a solution. I ripped it all out and cast on 26 stitches instead of 20. I knitted the first three rows and then began the pattern, but I added three knit stitches at the beginning and end of each row. No more rolling and it looks great! The extra knit stitches on the ends keep the scarf nice and flat. Love it.
