DIY: crocheted scarflette


materials needed:
yarn of choice 
( i chose a bulky one because it's faster to crochet)
crochet hook 
(size needed depends on your yarn of choice)
button


step 1: measure your neck, or the person you are making the scarflette for
adding the desired length.
decide on the desired width of the scarflette and measure.
(for pia, mine was approximately 28 inches long and 8 inches wide)

step 2: crochet a chain the length of desired length of scarflette

step 3: single crochet stitch the length and width
of your measurements


 once you are done you will end up
with a rectangular-ish shape

step 4: sew a button in the middle of the left end
of your scarflette

step 5: bring the right end over and work the button 
through any of the loops


tada! 
you have just made yourself a scarflette!

and if you have a little one like me
who is constantly losing her scarves,
this scarflette will definitely stay put!

Seriously, she packs a punch with personality. What a sweet heart. And I LOVE the tutorial. Buttons have always intimidated me and you made it so easy. Thank you!

BTW I'm starting a new series this month. You should stop by and take a look. =)
