Hooded Scarf 2.0


As promised I have gotten round, at last, to writing the pattern for the intermediate hooded scarf. With this pattern the hood and the scarf are made seperatly then sewn together:

You will need:
Chunky yarn. I used Picasso Chunky
6.5mm hook
Needle to sew

R1: dc in 3rd chain from hook and in next 13ch, 5dc in next, dc along other side of foundation chain, ch 2 turn (33dc)

R2: dc in next 14,  *inc in next, dc, rep from * 3 times, dc in next 14, ch 2 turn (37dc)

R3: dc in first 14, inc in next, dc in next 2, inc in next 2 stitches, dc in next 2, inc, dc in next 14, ch 2, turn (40dc)

R4: dc in next 14, *inc, dc in next 2, rep from * 4 times, dc in remaining stitches. ch 2 turn (43dc)

R5: dc in next 14, *inc, dc in next 3, rep from * 5 times, dc in remaining stitches, ch 2 turn (49dc)

R6: dc in next 14, *inc, dc in next 3, rep from * 6 times, dc in remaining stitches, ch 2 turn (55dc)

R7: dc in first 14, * inc, dc in next 4, rep from * 6 times, dc in remaining stitches, ch 2 turn (61dc)

R8-15 dc in every stitch, ch 2 turn.

Optional edging:

I didn't write the patten for this bit but if you wanted to do the edging it roughly goes like this:

3 dc in 1st stitch, *skip 1,  3dc 2 chain, ss in first chain, 3dc in same space, rep from *

Make scarf to desired length and width, or even longer if you want to fold the ends up to make pockets :)

I hope you enjoy the pattern :)

Hello Hello

Hello everyone.

It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to post anything; I’ve been very busy with odd commission work and personal projects.

I’m currently working on a hooded scarf for Lisa from Hiptronic Hoops I’ll be writing the pattern for this one so we will have a beginners and an intermediate pattern for the hooded scarf. The intermediate pattern will have a hood with no point at the back as the hood is made separately from the scarf and sewn on. Lisa has requested a big floppy hood so it will look pretty cool when it’s done.

I fell in love with a pattern on ravelry it’s a hooded shawl, it kind of looks like a cape, I have to make it, this needs to be a part of my life regardless of the ridiculous amount of projects I have going on at the moment.

Also on the hook I am making a blanket for my boyfriend. Its going to be made form granny squares and each square is going to be a pixel of a 1up mushroom from Mario brothers. I’ve given myself till his birthday in May to get it done so I’d better not hang around. Thankfully granny squares are a nice portable project so I can take them out and about with me.

I am super excited about the next issue of Inside Crochet. My project is going to be on the front cover, Click Here to see a sneak preview of the cover. The issue will be out on the 8th of March and inside will be my Leonard the Lion pattern and a designer inspiration piece about me
I’ll post pictures when the issue is out, so very very excited!

I’m currently having second thoughts about selling on etsy. At first I wanted to sell finished projects but I just don’t seem to have the time to build up enough stock to have a nice full shop so I think I will sell patterns instead and stay true to my designer roots. I have a few things ready, Just need to take photos and get them on-line.
