there is a great scarf over in the knitting section...it's Lothruin's mini-scarf with a button. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=18086.0
so with lothruin's sweet idea and stitch help from angelwing i whipped up this lil cutie in no time flat. it took a little less than half a skein, and actually it all depends how fat you want your scarf. so seriously, if you are a slacker like i am don't worry you can do several of these by xmas  Wink
first pics...
detail of the button...

i used an N (9.00 mm) crochet hook.
1st chain legth needed.i chained about 73 or something... remember some folks have big necks. mine is tiny.

then for the rows i did DC, ch one,skip next chain, DC, chain one, skik next chain, etc. just do that in rows until it reaches desired width. then tie off and weave in ends.

find yourself a button. mine was a fancy turtle button that i have had forever and never knew what to do with it. i just used yarn to wrap into the button twice and wrapped that around a stitch a few times and knotted it. play around with your button...i'm sure you'll find a good way to attach it. i put mine about an inch and a half from the end and roughly in the middle.

and there you have it... so easy and fast and fun. makes me feel like i've accomplished something!  i doing another now that i'm adding fringe too!!
yay! Lothruin you totally started a trend  Wink

if my pics don't load for ya (they are kinda difficult sometimes) just reload and such... it will work sooner or later.

I love the style, color and the pin.  Great job! Smiley

here is the other one with *fringe* yeehoooo

this time the button is saturn and the ring glows in the dark  Smiley

to do the fringe you just take several strands of yarn (mine were about 5 inches long and i did 5 strands for each fringe thing) and make a loop out of em. then stick through a hole at the end of your scarf.

then you just stick the tails of the yarn through the loop and tighten.
yay! i'm addicted to these things. i still have part of the skein left!!!

Perfect! Today I wore  a scarf and was annoyed by how it was always flopping off my shoulder (I ended up using a safety pin. lol), so this will work great! Now I have to go scavenge in my "junk" dresser to find the right button!  Grin

Hi blissed, thanks for posting here and with instructions, too!  Am always looking at fun buttons but really haven't had an good excuse to purchase...so thanks also for giving me one now!

Love them, blissedout!  They came out great!  I made another as a last-minute gift, this time fuzzy and monster-green.   Wink  It's longer than the other minis, but still not long enough to be tied around without looking dorky.  (I wanted to use up this yarn and didn't have enough to make a longer scarf.  Ha ha!)

I used one skein of Red Heart Foxy.  I also used a blending color of scrap yarn to make it easier to work with, but I don't know how much of that it took.  It was a skein of Red Heart baby yarn that I used here and there and for practice stuff, and I still have a ton left.  Foxy is the only kind of "fuzzy" yarn that I've tried so far.

here is my new fuzzy one... i'm not sure how good the pic is... but it is fuzzy and rad. i don't have the right button for it yet though!!! i used some random weird yarn (gem stone) that i ordered from Joann's and rust colored yarn.
