Easy Hooded Scarf Crochet Pattern – UPDATE 2014
There were some comments that the original Lionbrand pattern turned out to be too small. The model in the image is obviously petite, but I don’t think the pattern is totally wrong. It’s more that with this bulky yarn, the gauge is not as accurate. Furthermore, US hook size P comes both in 9mm and in 10mm. Be sure to use the LARGER hook size.
So, consider that the pattern below will comfortably suit an average 8 year old girl. To make one for yourself, check the gauge, stitch-count and check the assumed final measurements. Then, measure yourself and adjust your stitch-count accordingly. As well, I’d add a few inches to the scarf so that it ties better. OR, better still, add a couple of buttons or clips to secure it in position and make it into a sort of infinity scarf.

Yarn You’ll Need to make this Easy Hooded Scarf Crochet Pattern
Easy Hoodie Scarf Crochet Pattern
Free Crochet Pattern: Cozy Crochet Hooded Scarf
SKILL LEVEL: Easy
SIZE: One Size About 7 x 65 in. (18 x 165 cm)
Cozy Crochet Hooded Scarf
GAUGE: 4 sc = approx. 3 in. (7.5 cm)
CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Ch 91. (NOTE: this should be approximately 65″ long, ie the length of the scarf. IF YOU WANT A LONGER SCARF, ADJUST THE PATTERN NOW!)
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 90 sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across. Rep Row 2 until Scarf measures 7 in. (18 cm) from beg. Fasten off.
Count over 32 sts from one end of Scarf. Join yarn with sl st in the 33rd st.
NOTE: IF YOU’VE ADJUSTED THE LENGTH OF THE SCARF, YOU MUST ALSO MAKE AN ADJUSTMENT FOR WHERE THE HOODIE IS GOING TO FIT. THE MIDDLE OF THE SCARF = THE MIDDLE OF THE HOODIE.
Next Row: Ch 1, sc in same st as join and in each of next 25 sts – 26 sts for hood.
NOTE: this means that the hoodie depth (from face to back of the neck is 13 st or a bit over 9″. Will that fit you? If not, start the hoodie a stitch or two earlier and end the hoodie section a stitch or two later, so that you will add 2 or 4 st. Tip: later in the pattern there will be another inch added to the hoodie with a decorative edge.)
Next Row: Ch 1, turn, sc in each of the hood sts. Rep last row until hood measures about 11 in. (28 cm). NOTE: MEASURE YOUR HEAD AND ENSURE THAT an 11″ HOODIE WILL FIT YOU. If not, add a few rows. For my head (adult women), I’d like the hoodie to be about 13″ high instead of 11, and so I’d add 3 rows extra. Keep height and depth of the hoodie in proportion.
Fold last row of hood in half and seam for top of hood.
Join yarn with sl st at beg of front edge of Hood.
Row 1: Ch 1, work sc evenly spaced across front edge of hood.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across.
Weave in ends.
