I just love these hooded scarf patterns from over at Crochet N’ Crafts. Here is the beginner hooded scarf pattern that I recently crocheted but with a twist. I crocheted this all in one piece.
Okay now for the details. I generally followed the written pattern but only chained on 190 stitches at the beginning so my scarf tails would be a bit shorter. I crocheted the scarf until it was 5-1/2 inches wide and finished with the wrong side facing. Turn and fold the scarf in half. Mark 40 stitches down from the top on each side. Attach your yarn with the right side facing at mark. Ch 1, single crochet (Sc) in same stitch, *Ch 1, skip 1 stitch, and Sc in next stitch*. Repeat between * in established stitch pattern until you meet the other mark for the other side of hood. Ch 1 at end of row and turn. I crocheted my hood until it measured 11 inches tall not including the scarf portion.
Here is a photo of the piece before it has the hood stitched close. Click on it to super-size it.
With right sides facing out, slip stitch to close the top of the hood. The seam is from the top of your head from the face back to the tip at the back of the hood.
Working the hooded scarf pattern all in one piece makes it work up very quickly. The finished measurements are 5-1/2 wide scarf, hood is 11″ tall with total height of 16-1/2″ and 58″ long scarf.
