This is the most requested pattern. The first pattern has the XBOX controller in it. I’ve also put other patterns here that you can replace the controller with a controller or logo to suit your fancy.

This last part isn’t really a pattern, but kind of like a guideline for how to make the Guitar Hero Scarf. If there is a crocheter out there that can make this sound better, please contact me!
How to make a Guitar Hero scarf:
First you will need to find a riff from a song on Guitar Hero or Rock Band to base your design on. That’s harder than it sounds. You can use practice mode on some of the newer versions of Guitar Hero, or you can search YouTube for someone that posted a video of themselves rockin’ out to the song you want. This scarf was 22 “bars” long and it was over six feet, so keep that in mind when making your design.
For the main body of the Guitar Hero scarf:
Use a 5.5 MM or Size I hook
1. First do about 40 chain stitches (depending on the width you want and the yarn you are using) with Dark Gray. Then do 13 rows of a Single Crochet stitch with the same color.
2. Change to Light Gray and do one row of single crochet in that color.
3. Switch back to Dark Gray and repeat step one. I did this 22 times (for 22 bars), but you will need to adjust your number for the length of the riff you choose.
4. Finish off the body of the scarf with an edging of Light Gray. I used the single crochet stitch here again.
For the buttons:
Use a 3.5 MM or Size E hook
1. First chain stitch 6 stitches with a white yarn and then connect them to make a circle, tying the ends together. Cut off the yarn leaving an inch or two trailing (this comes into play later). There will be a little hole in the middle, but it will tighten up once you add the other colors.
2. Starting with the end of the circle you just made, add on the black yarn. This is where I had to improvise to get the right shape. I chained two stitches off of the first stitch, and then starting on the second stitch, chain stitch all the way around connecting every stitch, adding one stitch every three stitches or so to keep it round. Like I said, you may have to improvise. You want this to be circular, but also shaped like an inverse bowl. Do this with the black yarn all the way around the circle once. Then tie off the ends and cut off the yarn, once again leaving a couple of inches of yarn trailing behind the button.
3. Starting where you ended with the black yarn, add on the color of yarn for the button you are making (green, red, yellow, blue, or orange). As with step two, on the first stitch, chain stitch two, then one stitch for every stitch all the way around, adding a stitch every 3 or 4 stitches or so to keep it round. Go around in this fashion TWICE and then tie it off.
4. Starting where you ended with the colored yarn, repeat this process with the white yarn. Chain stitch two and then one stitch all the way around like in steps 2 and 3, tying it off at the end and cutting the yarn, leaving a tail.
5. This is a completed button! Now to attach the button to the scarf, collect all those little strands of yarn up and tuck them under the button. This will give the button it’s 3D effect and keep it from deflating on itself. Position the button on the scarf where you want it and hold it in place with a pin or two.
6. Get a large needle and a sturdy white thread. Make a large knot in the end of the thread so it doesn’t just fall out of the yarn later on. Do shallow stitches all the way around the exterior of the button from the back side of the scarf. If you can, try to hide the thread in the yarn with a slip stitch. You will want to do many small stitches to make sure the button is well attached to the scarf.
7. Now, sit back and admire your work before realizing you need to repeat this last part a couple dozen times with the other buttons.
