Happy June! I can’t believe it is already June- where has this year gone? It’s already time for our Scarf of the Month Club post and we have 3 brand-new free crochet patterns for you to try. I have included instructions to help you share your projects online at the end of this post. I’ve also linked to a tutorial I created to show you how to add your own project pages to Ravelry! We truly love it when you share your projects on Ravelry, so if you have time, please make your project pages so we can admire them!
This month my contribution to our Scarf of the Month Club is the Camello Bandana Scarf.
The Camello Bandana Scarf is crocheted with less than 1 ball of Red Heart Fashion Soft yarn (5 oz/141 g; 381 yds/348 m) and my 5 mm [H] Gold Furls Odyssey Crochet Hook. You can read my Crochet Yarn Review HERE. Red Heart sent me free samples of the Red Heart Fashion Soft to try and it is soft, lightweight and lovely to crochet with. It reminds me a lot of their Red Heart Soft Yarn, one of my favorite yarn lines to work with, except it is a Light  Weight yarn, not a Medium  Weight yarn.
This month, my design for the #SCARFOFTHEMONTHCLUB2017 is super versatile. You can wear this scarf in so many ways and here are six examples:
If you would like to make this bigger to have a full size shawl, just continue the pattern repeats before working the final edging. The final edging is easy to modify as well, simply follow my instructions but instead of working 100 sc down each side for Row 1 of the edging, work 3 sc for every initial ch 3 and 2 sc for every dc. Everything else will work as it is provided in repeats. Have fun and if you have questions please just send me a message 🙂
The free written pattern for my Camello Bandana Scarf is available below the links to Amy and Joanita’s Scarves. ♥ Rhondda

Helpful Video Tutorials
- This project is worked in rows.
- I include the instructions for the chain 3 (or 6) at the beginning of the row for which the chain 3 (or 6) counts as a stitch; rather than on the row prior after the instruction to Turn. This will make it easier to keep count of your stitches.
- The ch 3 at the beginning of a row counts as 1 double crochet.
- The ch 6 at the beginning of a row counts as 1 double crochet and 1 ch 3.
- Since the initial ch 3 (or 6) counts as 1 dc we do not work a second dc at the base of the stitch. This means when we “skip 1 dc” I am referring to skipping the stitch AFTER the stitch at the base of the ch 3 (or 6). So we do not work a stitch into the base of the ch 3 (or 6) and we do not work a stitch into the next dc of the row.
- I use a Magic Ring to begin my project to make the corner edge resemble a triangle shape.

Camello Bandana Scarf Pattern Instructions
This project is worked in rows from the bottom, up to the top edge. The edging is added immediately after the final row without reattaching the yarn. Please read the Notes above for important details you may need to know before you begin.
R1: MR: Ch 6 (an initial ch 6 counts as 1 dc and ch 3 each time it is used in this pattern), 1 dc. Turn. [2 dc, ch 3]
R2: RS: Ch 3 (an initial ch 3 counts as 1 dc each time it is used in this pattern), 5 dc in the ch3sp, 1 dc in the last dc of the row. Turn. [2 dc, 1 set of 5 dc]
R3: Ch 6, sk 1 dc, 1 sc in each of the next 3 dc, sk 1 dc, ch 3, 1 dc in the last dc of the row. Turn. [2 dc, 2 sets of ch 3, 1 set of 3 sc]
R4: Ch 3, 5 dc in the ch3sp, sk 1 sc, 1 sc in the next sc, sk 1 sc, 5 dc in the ch3sp, 1 dc in the last dc of the row. Turn. [2 dc, 2 sets of 5 dc, 1 sc]
R5: Ch 6, sk 1 dc, 1 sc in each of the next 3 dc, sk 1 dc, sk 1 sc, sk 1 dc, ch 3, 1 sc in each of the next 3 dc, sk 1 dc, ch 3, 1 dc in the last dc of the row. Turn. [2 dc, 3 sets of ch 3, 2 sets of 3 sc]

R8-41: Rep R6 and R7
R42: RS: Rep R6 but do not turn over your work at the end of this row. Instead, rotate your work to begin working down the side edge of your bandana scarf.
Super Important – if you are making this bigger or smaller than the instructions remember to work R1 of your edging on the RS of your project. If you begin R1 of your edging on the WRONG SIDE of your scarf the final row of the scarf and the final row of the edging will not end up being on the same side. So find the ‘good side’ (RS) of your work and be sure your final row worked of the scarf and the first row of your edging are on this side.
R1: Ch 1 and rotate your project to work down the side edge. Work 100 sc evenly along the side edge to the tip of your scarf, ch 1 and rotate your project to work up the other side edge. Work 100 sc evenly along the side edge to the top right corner of your project. Turn. [200 sc, ch 1]
R2: Ch 1, 1 sc in the first st, ch 3, *sk 3 sts, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, ch 3**. Rep from * to ** to the 3 sts before the ch1sp at the tip. Sk each of the next 2 sts and work 1 dc in the last st. Sk the ch1sp and rotate your work to crochet up the other side edge of your project. Sk 3 sts, ch 3, *1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, ch 3, sk 3 sts**. Rep from * to ** to the last st on this side edge. Sk the last st and work 1 sl st into the final st on Row 42 of the scarf. Turn.
R3: Ch 1, 1 sl st in the sl st, 5 dc in the ch3sp, *sk 1 sc, 1 sc in the next sc, sk 1 sc, 5 dc in the ch3sp**. Rep from * to ** across. Rotate your work to crochet up the other side edge of your project. Work 3 tr in the dc, *5 dc in the ch3sp, sk 1 sc, 1 sc in the next sc, sk 1 sc**. Rep from * to ** to the last ch3sp. Work 7 sc in the ch3sp, sl st to the first dc of R42 to join, finish off and weave in ends.
The 7 sc in the ch3sp forms the buttonhole.
Button (3 cm or 1.25 inches)
For the button I used, I threaded my yarn through the button holes and then centered the yarn on each side on the back. I tied the yarn together in a knot, 4 times to make it have a little extra room (because my button did not have a shank). If your needle will not fit through the holes on your button a quick tip is to use a bit of glue on the ends to make it into a ‘tip’ and use this tip (once dry) to thread the yarn without a needle through the button holes. Cut this bit off after the thread is secured to the button 🙂
