I hope you will enjoy working on this hooded scarf crochet pattern and it will keep you warm in the coming cold months. This Scarfie yarn was in my stash since last winter. I regretted buying it and wondered what I would make with it. I was convinced I made a bad choice until I actually started making the hood for this scarf. It was a little hard to see my stitches in the black parts but other than that the yarn was nice to work with, and I love the look of single ply yarns. I was surprised to see that this yarn was labeled Bulky weight. I would consider it close to a worsted weight yarn in thickness. What do you think of this yarn? 

Materials
1.Worsted weight yarn.The scarf pictured was made using Lion Brand Scarfie in color Charcoal/Aqua and was closer to worsted weight in thickness even though it is labeled a Bulky weight.
2. Hook- I (5.5mm)
3. Yarn needle for weaving in the yarn tails

 Size

One size fits all women. Hood is 12 inches high and 9 1/4 inches wide when laid flat. The scarf is 70 inches long and 5 inches wide. You can easily increase the length of the scarf by adding more chains or increase the width of the scarf by repeating the rows in sequence.

Gauge




16 1/2 dc sts(5.5 repeats of the stitch pattern) = 5 inches

Yardage

Around 450-460 Yards.  I used one and a half skeins of the Scarfie yarn.


Stitch Abbreviations
The pattern is in standard American terms.
dc- double crochet
sc- single crochet
hdc- half double crochet
sl st- slip stitch
ch- chain
sk- skip
fphdc-front post half double crochet
bphdc-back post half double crochet


Stitch Explanation
Front post half double crochet and Back post hdc: See my tutorial for the front post double crochet and back post double crochet stitches here. The hook is inserted in the same way for fphdc and bphdc, but in place of the dc you work a hdc. That is the only difference.

Crochet Pattern


1. Work 5 hdc into last ch and continue to work along the opposite side of the foundation ch

Row 1: Ch 39 + 2 for turning chain. 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in each chain across until 1 ch is left, 5 hdc in the last chain. Do not turn your work, but continue to work along the opposite side of the foundation chain as shown in pic 1 above. 1 hdc in each free loop of the foundation ch to end. Make sure you insert your hook under the point where 2 loops cross each other to avoid leaving holes in your work, turn.---------81 sts

Adding the Scarf
Note: If you want a longer scarf, you will add chains in multiples of 3 to each side. 

Row 1: Ch 85, now work along the base of the hood, work 65 sc evenly distributed along the base of the hood. I worked 1 st across each sc row and 2 sc across each dc row on an average, ch 86, turn.

Row 2: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch across until you reach the base of the hood, 1 sc across the 65 sts along the base of the hood, 1 sc in each chain across to end, turn.------235 sts

Row 3: Ch 2, 1 dc in same st as ch 2, 1 dc in next, sk next st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, 1 dc in the skipped st, *(sk next st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, 1 dc in the skipped st), repeat from * until only 2 sts are left, 1 dc in the last 2 sts, turn.------235 sts

Row 4: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st as ch 1, 1 sc in each st across to end, turn.---------235 sc

Repeat rows 3 & 4 until your scarf is 5 inches wide and you end in a sc row. Fasten off.

Giant Tassels (Make 4)
A 3 1/2-inches tall cardboard piece was used for making the tassel and each tassel was made of 28 wraps. You can see a video here.

Finishing
1. Weave in any tails left.
2. Attach the giant tassels to the 4 corners of your scarf.

  1. Just finished the hood part and it only covers half my head. 8 1/2 inches for half the hood or the entire width?

    1. The final width will be 9 1/4 inches. You are free to add more rows if you want your hood deeper.
