This month my contribution to our Scarf of the Month Club Collection is my brand-new Free Faerie Mist Hooded Scarf Crochet Pattern.

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!

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 🙂

R3-R21: Rep R2. Finish off. At this point your scarf will almost be 7 inches wide.

TURN

Hood

Stitch markers

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 103rd  st (which will be a sc). If you would prefer to count by ‘stitch sets’ of (1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc), please count the first sc and then 34 sets of (1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc) and mark that very last sc 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 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc), please count over 26 sets of (1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc) 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.

Start 1 sc First Row Hood

Work (1 hdc, 1 dc) in the same st. **Sk the next (1 dc, 1 hdc) 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 dc and 1 hdc and work 1 sc into the top of the last sc. Turn. [76, or 25 sets + 1 sc]

Last St Marker Row 1 Hood

R2: Ch 1 (counts as 1 sc), work (1 hdc, 1 dc) in the first st.

R 2 hood how to start

*Sk the next (1 dc, 1 hdc) 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 dc and 1 hdc and work 1 sc into the top of the turning ch from the prev row. [76]

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.

Hood - Faerie Mist Hooded Scarf

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).

Finishing

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.

  1. Hi Melanie, The stitch multiple: 3 + 1 (plus 2 for the starting chain). So if you wanted to have 12 sets, it would be 12 x 3 = 36, 36 + 1= 37, 37 + 2 (for the turning ch) = 39. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  2. How would I make pockets to attach to the ends of the scarf? Can you give me a starting chain count for a 12 pattern repeat please?? Tyia

  3. i just wanted to thank you for sharing this pattern. I have been crocheting for 48 years and this is the first ever item I have made for myself! So I thank you for sharing this wonderful pattern.

  4. Hi Darcy, to do this stitch in the round, you will need to slip stitch to join at the end of the round and then turn your work and work back across the previous round. The stitch texture is created by working back and forth in rows so to make it work for rounds there would need to be joining and turning at the end of every round. Hope this helps, Rhondda

  5. Hi Sue, The scarf is 70-inches long when finished – are you substituting yarn and hook maybe and getting a different overall length? If you are already finished and you’d like it to be shorter you can try fold up the ends of the scarf to create pockets and seam on the two outer edges – that might help with the length. All the best, Rhondda

  6. The pattern is so easy but the scarf seems so long on me even when I put it around my neck.

  7. Hi Krista, You are free to sell anything you make – I only request you do not share my pattern itself but instead, if someone asks for it, you give them the link to my site. Hope this helps! I’m happy you are enjoying the pattern!! Rhondda

  8. Hi! i LOVE this pattern! it’s SO satisfying.

    i was wondering though, i couldn’t find anything about it on the site so i thought i’d ask directly if you allow for the sale of finished products?

    thank you for sharing this pattern, it’s just so gorgeous and so easy to follow!

  9. Hi Colleen, You are correct! I reversed the stitch set in my explanation (I’ve changed to read the sets as they will be ‘approached’ as we work back across them in the notes in the post now). The stitch marker is falling in the sc in the last set and then you skip 1 dc, 1 hdc and join in the next sc. I apologize for the confusion. Here’s the rewritten bit – hopefully it makes more sense this way 🙂

    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 103rd st (which will be a sc). If you would prefer to count by ‘stitch sets’ of (1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc), please count the first sc and then 34 sets of (1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc) and mark that very last sc with a stitch marker.

    Thank you for pointing this out so I could fix it!

    All the best,
    Rhondda

  10. Hi ! I am just getting to the hood.. I am marking my work now. In the photo of your first marker, it looks like you’ve marked a SC, because right after the first marker it indicates skip next DC and skip next HDC . Then it says to join in first SC. But in the written instructions it says the first marker will be in a DC. Can you confirm in what stitch the first marker should be in?

    Thank you for the beautiful pattern!!

    Colleen

  11. I just realized that my ideas on altering the hood may change the number of stitches to count over, the number of stitches to make up the width of the hood, and the number of rows to make the height of the hood. I really hope you get it! My mind is racing lol

  12. Hi again Rhonda 😀 As I go thru the hood part I was confused by the instructions at first. I realize your pattern calls for making the seam on the back of the hood which allows for the scarf to hang directly from the hood. I find it better for me to seam the top of the hood which allows for the scarf to wrap around from the back of the hood. I am pointing this out for you and others making this to give another option which may make your pattern easier to understand. Also taking into consideration different head shapes and sizes and loose or fitted preferences. I hope you can appreciate and understand where I am coming from!

  13. TY Rhondda! I have already moved on to the hood part. I find my gauge to be 5 stitches per inch by 2 rows per inch OR 17 stitches = 4 inches and 13 rows = 4 inches. That may not all add up but that is how I counted it. The 6 inch width of the scarf is fine for me. I was just wondering if is simply my tight crocheting that accounts for that one less inch. I am very happy with how it is coming along! I certainly appreciate your feedback!!

  14. Hi Kimberly, It sounds like your gauge might be a bit tighter than mine is – so you likely have more stitches per inch, and more rows per inch in your gauge sample than the sample in the pattern. I hope it will still work for you! If you have extra yarn, you could continue to work a few more rows to add a bit more for the width to make up the difference. The width is used as part of the hood height so you wouldn’t want it to be too short in the end. Hope this helps, Rhondda

  15. Love this pattern! I am using Bumbleberry. Following to the ‘T’. I have 21 rows, 283 stitches across, but it is only 6 inches wide, not almost 7. Why might that be? I do tend to crochet tight.

  16. Hi Sara, Thank you so much for catching this – I totally put the seam text on the wrong side of the image. Yes when we seamed it the seam falls on the back of the head. The top is seamless and follows the lines of the scarf. Thank you for letting me know I made this mistake – I’ve updated the image 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  17. Just made one of these and really like it- thanks for the pattern! In your picture about seaming, shouldn’t the back of the head be what is seamed? The top of the head is formed by folding in half, isn’t it?

  18. Hi Terri, you could decrease the hood portion to make it smaller too. It depends which way you are trying to make it shorter though. For the height you’d simply need to decrease a couple rows of the hood but you need to take into consideration the 1 1/2″ you’ve already decreased as the hood is partially included in the scarf itself. If it is the part that fits around the face to the back of the head (rather than the height) you’d need to decrease the number of stitches (the 103 sts I used for the hood portion) and make that a smaller number. That is the bit that wraps around the back of the head toward the face. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  19. Great pattern, so easy to work up & im almost finished 😃
    I made the scarf portion a bit smaller, just under 6″, so I’m wondering should I alter the hood portion too? I’m assuming doing so will just make it a bit more fitting to my head (the point in the back) but I just wanted your opinion on that. If it’d work the way I’m thinking, I’d subtract the 1 1/2″ from the hood as well. Thanks for feedback & my new favorite hooded scarf pattern ☺️

  20. Hi 🙂 Gauge says 16 stitches (sts) – so it is worked in the pattern stitches for the scarf. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  21. the stitches mentioned in the gauge are single crochets?i don’t understand yet how gauges work

  22. Directions are spot on. Easy to make and looks great :). Thank you!

  23. Hi Paige, I will add it to my list of requests 🙂 It really shouldn’t be looking scrunched – you may have a tighter gauge than me when you are making the stitches…if you do you could try moving up a hook size? It almost sounds like the stitches aren’t quite big enough and it is making the fabric curl in on itself. I could be wrong though without seeing it it is hard to know for sure.

  24. Would you mind making a video tutorial on the first 3 rows? I’m having a hard time getting it started. I may be doing it wrong because my rows are curling around like a ribbon and getting a scrunched look. It’s a gorgeous scarf.
    Please and thank you.

  25. I love the look of this, I think I am finally going to use the 2 balls of Caron Cakes I’ve been holding on to…waiting for something special. Thank you
