The Easy Crochet Pocket Scoodie is my October Scarf of the Month CAL Pattern. This very easy to crochet, beginner-friendly scarf features simple stitches, pockets and a hood.

For this project you will be working double crochet (dc) and chain stitches (ch).

Try this hooded pocket scarf if you are a beginner! I think you will love the simplicity of the design.

If you are not comfortable making foundation double crochet stitches (that’s ok!) I have included Alternate Instructions (using the foundation chain) too.

Skip directly to this Alternate Pattern here.

To make my Easy Crochet Pocket Scoodie you will need Medium Weight Yarn [4] and a 4.5 mm (7) crochet hook.

One feature of this scarf that is unique to other pocket scarves, is that the pocket opening is on the side.

Easy Crochet Pocket Scoodie Side Pockets

It has always irked me that pocket scarf pockets are on the top, since typically I use the pockets to warm my hands up, rather than carry items.

If you prefer the pocket opening on the top to allow you to carry something though, it is easy to change. You would just need to seam the sides and base of the pocket, instead of the top, side edge and bottom.

You may choose to make a this as a scarf, a hooded scarf, a pocket scarf or a scoodie. If you do make the pocket scarf, or scarf without the hood, you may also want to pick up next week’s pattern for a coordinating crochet hat pattern.

Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple for foundation chain: even number of chains + 3
  • Stitch multiple for Foundation Double Crochet: even number + 1
  • I used a Foundation Double Crochet row instead of a foundation chain. You may substitute a foundation chain if you prefer. Please see ‘Alternate Row 1 Instructions’ to begin using a foundation chain instead. 
  • To change the scarf length, work your foundation double crochet stitches (Fdc) until you reach your desired scarf length and make sure you have an odd number of Fdc stitches. Then proceed to R2.
  • To increase the width of your scarf, work more rows.
  • The initial ch-3 counts as 1 dc.
  • If you want to make the scarf and pockets in one-piece and fold the base of the scarf up to create the pockets, you can. Begin with a 269 Fdc and skip the pocket section. Then fold the scarf upwards after the 241st Fdc and pin the pocket in place lining up the stitches along the edges of R1 and R17.

Easy Crochet Pocket Scoodie Pattern

This project is crocheted lengthwise in rows, in three parts.

PART 1: The Scarf

Using your 4.5 mm (7) crochet hook (or size required for gauge):

R1: RS: Work 241 Fdc. Turn. [241 Fdc]

R2-R17: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc), 1 dc in each st across. Turn. [241 dc]

Finish off. Put aside until all Parts are complete.

Proceed to finishing instructions (located after the Alternate Instructions).

Alternate Instructions (using a foundation chain start)

Notes:

  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. This gives the edge a more finished look and is visually the same as the top of the stitches from the final row you will be working for the scarf.  You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • To change the scarf length, chain until you reach your desired scarf length and make sure you have a number of chains you can divide evenly by 2, then add 3 chains. Then follow the ‘alternate R1 instructions’ above. 
  • If you want to make the scarf and pockets in one-piece and fold the base of the scarf up to create the pockets, you can. Begin with a foundation ch of 271 and skip the pocket section. Then fold the scarf upwards after the 241st dc and pin the pocket in place lining up the stitches along the edges of R1 and R17.

  1. Hi Cathy, I do not. I honestly didn’t realize the instructions would be any different – only that you begin on the left and work to the right whereas I work from right to left? Where are you getting stuck?
