My Winter’s Coming Hooded Scarf Pattern creates a warm and cozy scarf that you can wear this fall and winter.

The pattern uses a traditional granny stitch (3 dc sets) and then adds a pretty ribbed edge using alternating front post and back post double crochet stitches.

The hood is slightly oversized to allow you to snuggle into it, or to wear it down comfortably.  I hope you enjoy crocheting this new scarf design!

If you would like a longer scarf, I have included the stitch repeats so you can make it as long, or as short as you wish. You can also omit the hood section and simply follow the instructions for a traditional granny stitch scarf. If you do make the granny stitch scarf instead, add the final Row 1 edging to Row 3 too!

We will seam the back of the hood closed now before adding the edging to the scarf.

Turn your scarf so the RS (good sides) are facing together and the WS are on the facing outwards. Flatten the hood edge together and whipstitch a seam to close the top of R23 stitches together. I seamed under the back loop of the first row of stitches and the front loop of the other row of the stitches.

Finish off at the end of the row (do not seam the posts of the stitches – only the tops!) and weave in your ends.

 

Weave in the ends of the yarn (if you changed colors or balls of yarn) for the scarf and then proceed to the Edging Section below.

 

Edging

 

The edging is worked on the RS (right side) of the scarf only.

 

I selected my yarn colors to allow me to use one full row of color for each part of the scarf. You can choose any color from the ball you want to use. 

 

Edge 1

 

To begin we will add 1 row of double crochet along the base of the foundation chain (from R1). Join with a sl st and ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) and work 2 dc in every ch2sp and 1 dc in the base of every 3-dc set. Finish off. [181 dc]

Edges 2 & 4

 

Next we will add a single row of half double crochet along the side edges of the scarf (the ends). I used the same color for both ends. Work under 1 loop of the row ends for each st.

 

Work hdc evenly across (try to work the same number on each end of the scarf. I worked 36 on each end. I worked both edges before I worked Edge 3.

Edge 3

 

Next we will add our first row to the back of the scarf, and the very base of the hood. To begin join in the corner with a sl st, ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc), then work *1 FPdc in the next st, 1 BPdc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** across to the bottom of the hood section. I switched colors for the back of the hood section. If you are going to switch colors, switch on the last yarn over of the last st worked to your new color. [27 FPdc, 27 BPdc, 1 hdc]

 

Winter's Coming Hooded Scarf Edge 3

 

For the Bottom of the hood section, work double crochet stitches evenly across. I worked 32 dc across the bottom of the hood. On the last dc worked, switch to your other color of yarn on the last yarn over of the stitch. [32 dc]

 

Continue working along the back edge of the scarf. *1 FPdc in the next st, 1 BPdc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** across to the corner and work 1 hdc in the corner. Finish off. [27 FPdc, 27 BPdc, 1 hdc]

 

Weave in all ends from Edges 1, 2, 3 and 4.

 

Final Edge

 

Join in the top of the initial ch 3 from Edge 1 with a sl st and ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc). Work *1 FPdc in the next FPdc, 1 BPdc in the next BPdc**. Rep from * to ** across to the corner. Work 3 hdc in the corner and rotate your work to continue along the side Edge 2 of the scarf. [4 hdc, 90 FPdc, 90 BPdc]

 

1 hdc in each st across, work 3 hdc in the corner. [39 hdc] 

 

Rotate your scarf to work along the back of the scarf (Edge 3). 

 

Work *1 FPdc in the next FPdc, 1 BPdc in the next BPdc**. Rep from * to ** across to where the Bottom of the hood section begins.

 

Work *1 FPdc in the next st, 1 BPdc in the next st**. Rep from * to ** across to the end of the Bottom of the hood section. 

 

Continue across the back edge of the scarf. Work *1 FPdc in the next FPdc, 1 BPdc in the next BPdc**. Rep from * to ** across to the corner. Work 3 hdc in the corner. [3 hdc, 65 FPdc, 65 BPdc]

 

Rotate your work to crochet along the side edge of the scarf (Edge 4). 1 hdc in each st across, work 2 hdc in the corner. [38 hdc] 

 

Finish off and weave in ends.

 

We are working 1 more additional Row of stitches across the front edge of the scarf only.

 

Join your yarn, leaving about a 6-inch yarn tail, in the middle hdc in the corner, with a sl st, ch 2 (counts as 1 hdc). Work 2 additional hdc in the same st, 1 hdc in the next hdc. *1 FPdc in the next FPdc, 1 BPdc in the next BPdc**. Rep from * to ** across to the next hdc. Work 1 hdc in the next hdc, 3 hdc in the next hdc (this should be the middle hdc in the corner). Finish off with an invisible join.

 

 

Finishing Instructions:

 

Weave in any remaining ends. 

Add tassels, fringe or a pom pom if you want! 

You may also want to add a button in the front of the scarf if you like to wear your scarf closed under your jacket, across your chest.

  1. Hi Carol, Do you mean this: Caron Cakes. 7.1 oz (200 g) and 383 yds (350 m). 80 % Acrylic/ 20 % Wool. Medium Weight Yarn [4]. ? If this is what you are referring to 🙂 it is the description of the yarn for those who do not have access to Caron Cakes. So they can decide what will work best for substituting. The Caron Cakes is the only yarn used for this pattern – if I have included something somewhere else that is causing the question, please let me know so I can fix it! Thanks so much, Rhondda

  2. Can’t wait to make this but in your supply list you have, in addition to the caron cakes, a worsted weight acrylic/wool blend. I do not see in the pattern where this yard is used. Can you explain please?
