Quick, easy, warm & chunky scarf

For the last week it has been so cold here in Wisconsin, cold is not even the right word for it. Since the windchill has been well below zero (-35 to -45 at times) I have been driving my kids about 3 blocks to school. We have had a sickness work it's way around our house along with the school so I thought I would try to prevent them getting sick again or there fingers falling off. Keegan was the last child to not have a scarf so I sat there thinking of something super simple and quick to do (I love quick patterns; less chance of me getting board in the middle of a project). Enjoy!

Materials needed:
N hook
2 strands of your favorite worsted weight yarn (I used red heart soft)
Yarn needle to weave in ends
2 medium buttons

Stitches used: 
Ch: chain
Hdc: half double crochet

Rnd 1: with both strands ch 11, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and each across. Ch 1 turn (10)
Rnd 2: hdc in each sp across. Ch 1 turn. (10)
Rnd 3-98: repeat rnd 2
Rnd 99: hdc in 2 sp, ch 1, sk 1 sp, hdc in next 4, ch 1, sk 1 sp, hdc in last 2. Ch 1 turn. (Button holes made)
Rnd 100: hdc in each sp across and hdc in ch 1 sp. fasten off. 

Place buttons on round two one on the 3rd hdc and on the 7th.

Happy hooking!
