Buttoned Plaid Crochet Scarf

The Buttoned Plaid Crochet Scarf was a design just waiting to happen after I finished my husband’s Buttoned Plaid Cowl! I loved the plaid and the texture so much I had to make something for myself.

The idea of a convertible scarf had been bouncing around in my head for a while and when I fell in love with the texture and design of the Buttoned Plaid Cowl I knew this was my chance to use that idea. 

By adding the usable buttons to the scarf we are able to transform this scarf from an inifinity scarf to a long scarf. This scarf can be buttoned two different ways and then worn long and open. Talk about a versatile item!

Picking A Plaid Color Combination

First you will need to pick your colors to create a plaid effect. This is really simpler then it looks. Just pick two shades of one color and add either black or white to those colors. You can also pick three shades of one color, but I find it is hard to find a yarn with three perfect variations of one color. 

So here is some examples for a plaid color combination.

Medium Pink + Light Pink + White = Plaid

Bright Red + Dark Red + Black = Plaid

I used the blue example in my Plaid Ear Warmer pattern.

It is just one free crochet pattern to make all three styles. #crochet #crochetheadband #crochetearwarmer

Other options is to pick two colors then find a third color that is a blend of those two colors.

For example:

Red + Orange + Yellow = Plaid 

I used this color combination in the skirt of my Simply Fall Baby Dress.

When referring to the color in the pattern I will be labeling the colors as Light, Medium and Dark.

Buttoned Plaid Crochet Scarf Pattern

Notes:

  • I do not count my turning chain as a stitch, and I do not work a stitch into the top of the turning chain.
  • I like to Ch 2 at the beginning of each row instead of ch 3.
  • You will be working with two colors at once, do not carry the third color throughout the project instead we will be just carrying it up the side of the cowl. It will get crocheted over later when we work Single crochets down the side of the cowl.

Using medium color Ch 234.

R1: Using the medium color, starting with the third ch from the hook, (using the medium color, work one Dc into each of the next 4 chs, using darkest color, work one Dc into each of the next 4 ch,) repeat from (to) across. ( 232 Dc)

      The bad thing about plaid is that you need three colors, but the result is so beautiful. My aunt mistake the scarf as being flannel.
