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.

See additional notes in the pattern itself.

Yarn You’ll Need to make this Easy Hooded Scarf Crochet Pattern

Hometown USA

This one is called ‘Houston Cream ‘. You’ll need 4 balls, and a crochet hook size Size P-15 (Be sure it is the 10 mm, not the 9 mm hook).

 

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.

 

SCARF


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.

Hood


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.

Fasten off.

FINISHING
Hood Seaming

    Hi. Thank you for sharing this easy hooded cowl pattern. It will make for several warm gifts this winter! Have you seen and/or posted any “cutsie” children’s versions of hooded cowls? I saw a few made in bulky yarns that looked cozy. Thanks.

  2. This pattern must be for babies cause it sure is too small for an adult by about 1/2.

  3. Hi Jmttm,
    Well, what comes to mind is to ask first what crochet hook size and yarn thickness you are using. The final size of this is meant to be about 7 x 65 in. (18 x 165 cm), which is not really baby size…. Let me help you convert the gauge if you need to. ~ Rose

  4. Hi Elke,
    you could simply make this a size smaller by adjusting the yarn thickness or the stitch count. That’s what I would do. ~ Rose

  5. Hi. I’ve worked up this scarf and good easily. But I’m stuck at the end. What do you mean by “fold last row of hood in half and seam for top of hood?”

  6. Fold it and create stitches that go over both the left and the right side to close the top, so that it becomes a hoodie.
    Clearer now? Let me know. ~ Rose

  7. I was very disappointed with pattern. Something is missing in regards to the hoodie. It is not big enough for a adult head.
