Quick Gift Button Scarf (12 Weeks of Gifting Series), Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Quick Gift Button Scarf is a fabulously textured piece that can be worn lots of different ways!  Fun to both make and wear!


This project is part of the 12 Weeks of Gifting Series!  Each week from NOW to the end of December, I'll be sharing a new pattern for something that is super easy and super quick to whip up.  We'll be using the same yarn and same hook size for every single project, just switching up the colors a bit.  Many of these projects can be made in just one sitting too!

With the holiday season fast approaching, sometimes it's hard to squeeze in the time needed to make handmade gifts for everyone on your list!  No worries, our 12 Weeks of Gifting Series to the rescue!  Click the link below for the full directory of projects:
