Simple Scarf with Optional Hood - Free crochet pattern

| 9 Comments


Size: 9 1/2 inches x 84 inches
Color: Dark Plum (purple) (TLC Essentials; less than 2 6-ounce skeins)
Pattern: My own (see below)
Hook: M for scarf; L for border
Date: January 2005
Time to make: About 5 hours

While I like the wimple I made for myself in November, the wind blows right through the front onto my neck (I used a larger crochet hook to make it not as tight around my face, but now it's not tight enough!). I may take the time to re-make the wimple, but first I decided to make myself a hooded scarf so that I could adjust the coverage around my face and neck. The pattern below is my own.

[Update January 23, 2005] 84 inches is way too long for someone who's 5-foot 3-inches at the most! As the scarf stretched, it reached my knees! So, I pulled out the scarf and am making it again. This time, I'm using an L hook for the scarf (so the scarf is less airy and less stretchy) and a K hook for the border. I may leave off the hood this time.

[Update January 24, 2005] The new scarf is 68 inches long - just right for me!

Simple Scarf with Optional Hood

Use whatever type and color of yarn you want and whatever size crochet hook you want to use with that yarn. Change colors in whatever stripe pattern you desire, or keep it solid. The scarf is crocheted across its width.

The scarf pictured above uses 4-ply worsted acrylic yarn and M and L crochet hooks.

Starting chain: with larger hook, ch 29 (or whatever odd number of chains that makes the desired width)

Row 1: sc in 3rd chain from hook (the first 2 chains count as 1 turning ch and first ch-1 space), (ch 1, skip 1 ch, sc) to end (mark row as right side)

Row 2: ch 2, turn; skip first sc, sc in ch-1 space, (ch 1, skip 1 st, sc in ch-1 space) to end

Repeat Row 2 until the scarf is the desired length; finish off

Seam for hood (optional; do before border): fold scarf in half with wrong side facing and join the two sides for about 6-8 inches as follows: join with sc in one side at first sc at folded crease, ch 1, sc in same stitch on second side, * ch 1, sc in next sc in first side, ch 1, sc in next sc on other second side *, repeat from * to * until desired length of back of hood is reached; finish off

Border: with right side facing and smaller hook, join with sc in last sc of Row 1; (ch 2, sc in second ch from hook (short picot made), skip 1 st, sc) across width, continuing down length counting each row end as one stitch, then across the width of the other end, and down the legnth of the last side; join with sl st to first st; finish off

I am interested in making the Scarf with optional Hood, but cannot seem to be able to SEE it very good. Is there a better picture of this pattern? Thank you.
Sincerely, Betty

Hi, Betty - Did you click on the small photos to view the larger ones? I've also attached a pre-cropped photo of the scarf to my emailed reply.

I am also having a difficult time seeing the pictures clearly of the pattern of the SIMPLE SCARF WITH OPTIONAL HOOD.
I noticed you had sent a pre-cropped photo via email to another person. That would be wonderful if I could ask for the same.
THANK YOU!!!

Hi, Bonnie - I apologize for the delay in responding to your message. I've emailed the original photo (pre-crop) to you.

Do you have a picture of the hood part .. I`m new at this .
Thank you

Hi, Della - I haven't checked email in a while so this is a very late response. I don't have a photo. The scarf is a long rectangle and the hood is created by folding the rectangle in half and then joining the 2 sides of the rectangle from the folded edge for about the distance of a person's head.

i'm also interested in your scarf do you mind sending me a photo to my email?

Thanks for the pattern! Could I possibly see the scarf with the hood option. I can't quite see the design cleary although it looks lovely!
Thanks so much

Mary Hill

Could you please send me a picture of the scarf with the hood

Thanks

Mary
