Hooded scarf with pockets crochet pattern-chunky and warm!

Crochet Hooded Scarf with Pocket

 

I wanted to make a really warm scarf for myself, so I used some nice chunky yarn and designed this free crochet pattern for a hooded scarf with pockets. 

 

Crochet Pocket Scarf with Hood

 

You can easily make this hooded scarf with or without pockets. The pockets are made by just folding the scarf and turning it into pockets, easy peasy!

 

Crochet Scoodie with Pockets

 

This is my third hooded scarf pattern after the Heidi hooded scarf, and I like this chunky style better. I think it will look great over a black pea coat. 

 

Easy Crochet Hooded Scarf with Pockets

 

I don’t like pointy hoods, so I added some gentle shaping to make it smooth and curvy at the back. I feel it looks much better this way.

Ribbing

With a K(6.5mm) hook, ch 51 (57, 63). 

Row 1: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook( 3 skipped chains count as a dc), 1 dc in each ch across to end, turn.—–49 (55, 61) dc

 

Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as a dc), 1 fpdc in next st, *(1 bpdc in next st, 1 fpdc in next st), repeat from * to beginning ch-3, 1 dc on top of beginning ch-3, turn.——-49 (55, 61) sts

Your ribbing is now complete and it should be approximately 20 inches long for the teen size and 22 inches long for the adult. Do not fasten off but proceed to make the back of the hood below. 

 

Back of the Hood

Switch to the bigger 8mm hook. 

Row 1(Size Child Only): Ch 1( does not count as a st), 1 sc in same st as beginning ch-1, *(sc2tog across next 2 sts, 1 sc in next st), repeat from * to end, turn. Your last sc will be on top of beginning ch-2.——–33sc

 

Row 1(Size Teen only): Ch 1( does not count as a st), 1 sc in same st as beginning ch-1, 1 sc in next 3 sts, *(sc2tog across next 2 sts, 1 sc in next st), repeat from *until 2 sts and the beginning ch is left, 1 sc in next 2 sts, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2, turn. —–39 sc

 

Row 1(Size Adult Only): Ch 1( does not count as a st), 1 sc in same st as beginning ch-1, 1 sc in next st, (sc2tog across next 2 sts, 1 sc in next st, sc2tog across next 2 sts, 1 sc in next 2 sts), repeat from * until 2 sts and the beginning ch is left, 1 sc in next 2 sts, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2, turn.——45 sc

 

Continue for All Sizes

Row 2: Ch 2, * [sk next 2 sts, (2 dc, ch 2, sc)in next st], repeat from * to last 2 sts, sk next st, 1 sc in last st, turn.——–10(12, 14) repeats

 

Row 3: Ch 2, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in next ch-2 space and each ch-2 space across, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2, turn.—–10(12, 14) repeats

 

Repeat Row 3 until you have completed 6(6, 7) rows and the hood measures 6.5(7, 8) inches including the ribbing. 

 

Note: In the next row, you will place markers in the ch-1 spaces or they will be hard to identify. 

 

Hood Decrease

Decrease Row 1: Ch 2, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in first 4(5,6)ch-2 spaces, (dc2tog, ch 1, sc)in the next two ch-2 spaces, place a marker in the two ch-1 spaces you just made, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in the remaining 4(5,6)ch-2 spaces, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2, turn.

 

Decrease Row 2: Ch 2, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in first 4(5,6)ch-2 spaces, 2 dc in the next two ch-1 spaces, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in the remaining 4(5,6)ch-2 spaces, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2, turn.

 

Last Row: Ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-2 loop, 1 sc in next 2 dc sts, *(1 sc in next sc, sk next ch-2 loop, 1 sc in next 2 dc), repeat from * until you reach near the dc sts in the middle, sc2tog across next 2 dc, sc2tog again across next 2 dc, *(1 sc in next sc, sk next ch-2 loop, 1 sc in next 2 dc), repeat from * until just the beginning ch-2 is left, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2. Do not fasten off. Your hood will now look like the picture below. 

 

1. Completed hood before seaming the back

 

Seaming the Back of the Hood

Now pick which side you want to make your right and wrong side. You can choose the side that is more appealing to your eye as the right side.  

 

2. Fold and sl st the back of the hood as shown

 

Fold the hood along its length making sure the wrong side is outside. Continue using the yarn attached and seam the 2 layers together with a slip stitch ( see pic 2 above). When slip stitching, insert your hook under the back loop of the stitches on the front layer and the front loop of the stitches on the back layer. That is, you should work through the loops at the very edge of the fabric to avoid making a bulky seam.

 

Crochet Scarf

With the bigger 8mm hook, ch 16(19,19).

 

Row 1: Working into the back bumps of the chain,  1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across to end. —–15(18, 18) sc

 

Note: The pattern for the scarf is similar to the hood pattern but you will be chaining 3 instead of 2 at the beginning as your scarf needs more drape. 

 

Row 2: Ch 3, * [sk next 2 sts, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in next st], repeat from * to last 2 sts, sk next st, 1 sc in last st, turn.——–4(5, 5)repeats.

 

Row 3: Ch 3, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) in next ch-2 space and each ch-2 space across, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-2, turn.—– 4(5, 5)repeats.

 

Repeat Row 3 until your scarf is 55(65,68) inches long if you don’t intend to add the pockets or 57( 70, 74) inches long if you plan on making the pocket version. Do not fasten off.

 

Last Leveling Row: Ch 2, 1 sc in first ch-2 space, 1 sc in next 2 dc sts, *(1 sc in next sc, sk next ch-2 loop, 1 sc in next 2 dc), repeat from * until just the beginning ch3 is left, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-3. Fasten off. 

 

 

Attaching the Hood to the Scarf

3. Align the marker with the hood seam and whip stitch it to the scarf

 

Fold the scarf into half and place a marker on the fold to indicate the middle. Place the scarf and the hood with the wrong sides facing up, align the seam of the hood with the marker and sew them together with a whip stitch going under just 1 loop at the edge of the fabric. You will need around 60 inches of yarn to make the seam. Do not forget to reinforce the beginning and end of your seam with extra stitches. 

 

Making the Pockets

 

To make your pockets, keep the scarf wrong side facing up, fold up 6-1/2 (7, 7) inches of your scarf. Using a 45-inch strand of yarn seam the sides with a whip stitch as shown above. Do not forget to reinforce the top of the pockets with a couple of stitches when you start.  Turn it inside out once you are done. 

 

Finishing your Crochet Hooded Pocket Scarf with Pockets

Weave in any tails left and your lovely scarf is ready to wear. I hope this crochet hooded scarf with pockets will keep you warm and cozy. Enjoy!

For the back of the hood when it says 10 repeats does that mean to repeat row 2 10 times?

No, it means you will have 10 pattern repeats at the end of the row.
