Camello Bandana Scarf Crochet Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

This pretty crochet bandana pattern makes the perfect scarf. The Camello Bandana Scarf is a Versatile Scarf with Multiple Styling Options. 

The Camello Bandana Scarf Pattern 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 [3] Weight yarn, not a Medium [4] 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:

Camello Bandana Scarf Options

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 🙂

Notes

  • 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.

Edging

Camello Bandana Scarf - Edging

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.

Row 1 Edging

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]

Row 2 Edging

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.

Row 3 Edging

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)

Button Camello Bandana Scarf

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 🙂

  1. Hi Jeanne, I keep rereading the instructions and I think there might be a mistake in the instructions. If I have 42 rows and work 5 sc (for the side edging) for every 2 rows, that would be 21 sets of 5 which is definitely 105, not 100. I’m not sure how my tech editor and I both missed this. I apologize for the confusion caused by this. The instructions should work still using the 105 as the total as essentially it is 2 extra rows and the edging is set to work for larger and smaller sizes. Let me know if you stumble into any other hiccups in the design and thank you for letting me know! Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  2. Hi Rhonda,
    Thank you so much for the pattern! I am having trouble with the edging though…I have tried many times but I always end up with 105 sc (instead of 100) on both sides. I am sure I did 3 sc in ch3 and 2 sc in dc. I also counted the “21 windows( the space created by 5 dc)” on R42. 21×5=105? What did I do wrong? How should I proceed? Thanks in advance for your reply!

  3. Hi Alie, I do not have a video for this yet but I will add it to my list to record one 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  4. I’ve been looking for a scarf /shawl pattern for a while! I had one but pattern instructions seem skewed so I gave up:( But this will be perfect for what I have in mind! Thank you!

  5. Do you have a video tutorial of the pattern? It’s beautiful and I so want to make it, but I’m a visual learner and I can’t make any sense of the written pattern. 😩 Please help…

  6. Hi Hannah, Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂 If you do try the pattern and have any questions, please just let me know 🙂 I’d be happy to help. You can leave a message here or send me an email through the contact form on my site. Have a lovely week and good luck with the pillows! Rhondda

  7. Cannot thank you enough Rhonda for the free pattern and comprehensive post!
