"Button It Up" Interchangeable Scarf

This is an easy beginner crocheted scarf that goes from regular to spectacular...all with the use of a button.

(2) skeins Lionbrand Hometown U.S.A.
(1) 10 mm crochet hook
(1) 9 mm crochet hook
(1) tapestry needle
(1) pair of scissors
(1) large button with large holes

st = stitch
sts = stitches
ch = chain
dc = double crochet

Let's Begin:
Using the 10 mm crochet hook, ch 102 sts, switching to the 9 mm crochet hook after last ch.
Row 1: dc in second ch from the hook and in each st across, ch 2 turn (100 sts)
Row 2: dc in the back loops of ea dc st across, ch 2 turn (100 sts)
Row 3: repeat row 2
Row 4: repeat row 2 (if you want a thicker scarf add more rows being sure to end on an even row)
Row 5 (or your last row if you've added additional rows): dc in each dc st across (100 dc)
Bind off and weave in ends.

Attach button - using 3 inches of yarn, thread through tapestry needle. Center button on one of the scarf ends in the middle of the rows (row 3 for this pattern). Thread through one button hole going through scarf to the other side and pulling up though opposite hole of button. Repeat as many times as possible to secure the button to the scarf. When button feels secure, bind off and tie both ends into a knot cutting off excess yarn.

Slip button in between any dc stitch to change up the style of your scarf. Let your imagination go wild as you try to figure out the many ways you can rock this scarf!
