When it comes to patterns, this Harbor Scarf Pattern is one that I continuously come back to for both myself, and gifts for family and friends. Below you will find the pattern for this beautiful button cowl. Please feel free to share your finished work. I would LOVE to see it. 🙂
CH = Chain
HDC = Half Double Crochet
ST = Stitch
STS – Stitches
Note: Numbers below in parenthesis are the number of stitches needed to complete each row.
Row 1: HDC in third CH from hook and in each CH across. (73 STS)
Row 2: CH 2, turn, HDC in back loop only of second ST and in back loop only of each remaining ST across. Make last HDC in the top of the turning CH. (73 STS)
Row 3: CH 2, turn, working through both loops, HDC in second ST, and in each ST across. Make sure to put last ST in the top of the turning CH. (73STS)
Row 4 – 12: Take turns repeating rows 2 and 3.
Placement of Buttons
While working on a flat surface, take your scarf and lay it with the right side up (Braid looking side, or some call it the side with the “Chain” look). Take 3 coconut buttons and space them approximately 3 to 4 inches apart so that when you pull the left side of the scarf over, it looks like above making sure that there is a space on the left side for each button to go in to. Thread your buttons, push thread through bottom of cowl and tie knots (I tie 3 times for each button just to make sure it holds). Cut thread and fold as below bringing the left side over the right, and placing through holes on left end of scarf as above. Let me know if you come across any questions.
