Here is a free crochet pattern for an easy crocheted scarflette. Scarflettes are great for keeping the neck warm in the cold weather. They are often more comfortable than a scarf because they are short and can be worn comfortably underneath any coat or jacket.
This scarflette crochet pattern works up fast, and has a nice textured look to it. The textured stitches are created by crossing the stitches; first you skip a few stitches, and then you backtrack and work into the skipped stitches. The method is very easy once you have mastered the basics of crochet.
I used Bernat Satin for this, but any worsted weight yarn will work because the width and length are easy to adjust.
Due to the simplicity, you could also use the pattern to make a long scarf, hooded scarf or a nice wrap for the winter.
Also, I used velcro to close it at the time, however, I found that although it works, it isn’t the greatest idea. A couple of buttons tend to work much better as they don’t catch the yarn. The buttons should be small enough to fit through the crocheted work. A small scarf pin also works well for holding it in place.

Repeat last two rows another 19 times, or until desired length. FO at last row.
Lay scarflette on flat surface with right side facing down. Bring both ends in with one end over the other so as to create a point. Take some Velcro and slightly lifting the top piece, stick the Velcro on the bottom and corresponding top corners. Instead of velcro, you can also sew on some buttons or snap closures. They are actually a better choice as the velcro will snag the yarn.
