Happy July! I almost didn’t get this one to you on time this month! We had a brilliant thunderstorm today and it knocked out the power for a bit – when it came back on though we were still missing our telephones and our internet connection! It just came back online about 20 minutes ago (10:35 pm here) my tablet started beeping like crazy with all the messages coming through! Which of course woke me up and here I am getting this post out ‘lickety-split’! Thank you for your patience today 🙂
I have included instructions to help you share your projects online at the end of this post. I’ve also linked to a tutorial I created to show you how to add your own project pages to Ravelry! We truly love it when you share your projects on Ravelry, so if you have time, please make your project pages so we can admire them!
This month my contribution to our Scarf of the Month Club is the Faerie Mist Hooded Scarf.
The Faerie Mist Hooded Scarf is crocheted with a 5 mm (H) hook and 2 balls of Caron Cakes Yarn. This project is easy and only uses basic stitches (single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet. The placement of the stitches gives the scarf beautiful texture and softness. The Caron Cakes Yarn I used is called Faerie Cakes and I love it because of the ombre shades of blues which flow into one another. This project will take you a number of hours to complete so it is best thought of as a weekend project. It is very relaxing to crochet because of the stitch pattern and you will be able to make this one when you are watching tv or netflix 🙂
The free written pattern for my Faerie Mist Hooded Scarf is available below the links to Amy and Mistie’s Scarves. ♥ Rhondda

- stitch multiple: 3 + 1 (plus 2 for the starting chain).

Faerie Mist Hooded Scarf Pattern Instructions
R1: RS: Ch 285, sk 2 chs (sk 2 chs counts as 1 sc) and work (1 hdc, 1 dc) in the next ch. *Sk 2 chs, work (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc) in the next ch**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 3 chs. Sk 2 chs, work 1 sc in the last ch. Turn. (283)
R2: Ch 1 (counts as 1 sc), work (1 hdc, 1 dc) in the first st. *Sk the next (1 hdc, 1 dc) and work: (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc) in the next sc.** Rep from * to ** across to the last 3 sts. Sk the next 1 hdc and 1 dc and work 1 sc into the top of the turning ch from the prev row. 
R3-R21: Rep R2. Finish off. At this point your scarf will almost be 7 inches wide.
Beginning at the same corner as you would begin this row if you were crocheting (so right-handed crocheters – the right corner), count over 103 sts and place your marker in the 103 st (which will be a dc). If you would prefer to count by ‘stitch sets’ of (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc), please count the first sc and then 34 sets of (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc) and mark that very last dc with a stitch marker.
Now count over 78 sts, and place another stitch marker in the 79th stitch will be a dc stitch. If you would prefer to count by ‘stitch sets’ of (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc), please count over 26 sets of (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc) and mark the first dc of the next set (what would be the 27th set). These center stitches are the 78 sts you will be working your hood across.
You will have 34 sets remaining (102 stitches) on the other side of the marked center section.
R1: Join your yarn with 1 sc in the next sc following the first stitch marker.
Work (1 hdc, 1 dc) in the same st. **Sk the next (1 hdc, 1 dc) and work: (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc) in the next sc.** Rep from * to ** across to the last 3 sts. Sk the next 1 hdc and 1 dc and work 1 sc into the top of the last sc. Turn. [76, or 25 sets + 1 sc]
R2: Ch 1 (counts as 1 sc), work (1 hdc, 1 dc) in the first st.
*Sk the next (1 hdc, 1 dc) and work: (1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc) in the next sc.** Rep from * to ** across to the last 3 sts. Sk the next 1 hdc and 1 dc and work 1 sc into the top of the turning ch from the prev row. 
R3-R15: Rep R2, do not finish off. Your hood will be 12 inches tall including the scarf portion. The hooded portion you added will be approximately 5 inches. The scarf portion was approximately 7 inches. The width is 20 inches. Once you fold it in half it will be 10 inches.
Fold your scarf down the center of the final row and then close the back of the hood by seaming the two sides of the final row together with a row of slip stitches. (See Images Below)
Finish off and weave in your ends. Turn your scarf right side out (seam is now on the inside of the hood).
Join your yarn in any stitch on the outer edge of the scarf or hood, with 1 sc. Work one round around the scarf and hood of evenly spaced single crochets. Finish off and weave in your ends.
