Sable Button Scarf


The Sable Button Scarf crochet pattern works up quickly. With the cooler temps we have been experiencing lately I decided to whip up a new scarf. And I could not resist making it in Pumpkin Spice and Cocoa. It may not be Fall anymore but I still love those two colors together and will totally wear it year-round. I cannot help but think of a Pumpkin Spice Latte’, which just happens to be my favorite drink. I am offering the Sable Button Scarf as a free crochet pattern for you. You will also be able to get the ad free PDF for free today only. You can find more of my scarf crochet patterns HERE.

Sable Button Scarf is my first crochet pattern of 2020. I love how soft, textured and cozy it is. I also love how it’s a 2-N-1 accessory! Wear it as a scarf or a cowl. Either way it’s a great accessory to have.

The Yarn

For this project I chose to use Yarn Bee Soft Secret. This yarn is a worsted weight medium #4 yarn. It is a little on the lighter side of your typical #4 yarn. It is one of the things I like most about it. I love how soft and light weight for the scarf.


*Content: 100% Acrylic
*Skein Size: 6 oz/170g, 300 yards/275 m/170g
*Care: Hand wash, lay flat to dry
* Gauge” Medium Worsted (4)


There is just something about wearing one of my scarves that puts a smile on my face and makes me excited. It’s not like I get to wear my scarves much where I live so, when the opportunity arises you better believe I’m in my happy place. Enjoy!

Now we are ready to set up for the buttonholes. If you do not wish to have buttons on your scarf then you may fasten off and weave in ends using your blunt yarn needle. If you would like to have the cute buttons on your scarf then do NOT fasten off yarn. Continue with Buttonholes Instructions below.
