TLC Hooded Scarf With Pockets

A free crochet pattern for a hooded scarf with pockets. The pattern is easy to crochet for the most part. The only challenging stitches are the front post and back post stitches. Once you get the pattern started, it allows for hours of mindless crocheting.

It’s an elegant hooded scarf to keep for yourself or to gift to someone special. My favorite thing about this scarf is not only the way it drapes, but the ribbed edge around the hood, the bottom of the scarf and the top of the pockets, makes this the go-to hooded scarf pattern to go with your favorite winter outfits.

About the Yarn

I used TLC Promise Sport yarn, which goes a long way and produces a nice light fabric. I purchased a big ball of 350g and still have quite a bit left over.

The yarn has been discontinued, but any similar DK weight would work. The one that comes to mind is Red Heart Comfort Sport. It comes in big balls, making it economical as well. It is available at Walmart and other stores that carry Red Heart.

Materials

  • Yarn: TLC Promise Sport (1 350g/12.35 oz ball) (This yarn has been discontinued, but any DK that matches the gauge should work.)
  • Crochet Hook: G/6-4.25MM
  • Tools: Measuring Tape, Scissors, Yarn Needle.

Measurements

  • Gauge: Measures 3" over 13 sc sts and over 11 sc rows.

Abbreviations

Notes

  • The pockets only measure about 5 inches wide.. If you need to make the pockets wider, you can do so by increasing the beginning chs by 2 or a multiple of two. Note that if you want to make the pockets wider, that you will also have to make the scarf wider.

Instructions

The Scarf

  • To begin the scarf: Ch 27, or any multiple of 2 plus 1 to get the width you want.
  • Row 1(RS): Dc in third ch from hook and in each ch to end. Turn. (25 sts)
  • Row 2 (WS): Ch 1, hdc in first st, *bpdc in next st, hdc in next st, repeat from * to end. Turn.
  • Row 3: Ch 1, hdc in first st, *fpdc in next st, hdc in next st, repeat from * to end. Turn.
  • Rows 4: Repeat row 2.
  • Row 5: Ch 1, sc in first st and in each st across. Turn.
  • Row 6: Ch 1, working in fl only, sc in each st across.
  • Rows 7-250: Repeat row 6 until you have reached a desired length minus about 1.5 inches. Also make sure to end with an even row.
  • Row 251: Working in both lps, ch 2, dc in first st and in each st across. Turn.
  • Row 252: Ch 1, hdc in first st, *bpdc in next st, hdc in next st, repeat from * to end. Turn.
  • Row 253: Ch 1, hdc in first st, *fpdc in next st, hdc in next st, repeat from * to end. Turn.
  • Row 254: Ch 1, hdc in first st, *bpdc in next st, hdc in next st, repeat from * to end. Fasten Off.

The Pockets (Make 2)

  • Ch 20, or any multiple of 2 in order to obtain a desired measurement.
  • Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across. (19 sts)
  • Rows 2-15: Repeat scarf pattern row 6.
  • Rows 16-19: Repeat scarf pattern rows 251 to 254. When you fasten off make sure to leave a long enough tail to sew the pocket to the scarf.
  • Sew the pockets onto the right side of the scarf aligning the ridges of the fabric.

The Hood

  • To determine the size of the hood at the front, measure from one shoulder and over the head to the next shoulder. As for the measurement from the front to back, measure along the side from the front of the head and to the center back of the head.
  • Note that the hood will appear larger than what you bargained for over the first 4-6 rows or so. But once you do more of the sc rows the edge pulls itself together.
  • Ch 105, or any multiple of 2 plus 1 to achieve the desired measurement.
  • Rows 1-6: Same as rows 1-6 of the scarf pattern rows.
  • Rows 7:39: Repeat scarf pattern row 6 until you have reached a desired measurement of the hood. Fasten off leaving a tail long enough to sew the back seam of the hood.
  • To sew the seam, thread the tail end through a yarn needle. Fold the hood over with the right sides facing each other and aligning the stitches. Sew the two sides together.
  • Fold the scarf in half with the wrong sides facing each other and position the folded hood on top, aligning the center of the hood with the scarf. The right sides of the hood and scarf should face each other. Both folds of the hood and scarf should align as well as the ridges. Pin the two touching sides (the two middle layers) of the hood and scarf together.
  • Then bring the bottom layer of the scarf around to encase the hood and pin together making sure that everything is aligned and even. Then sew the seam starting at one end.
  • And Tada! There you have yourself a new hooded scarf with pockets

  1. Love this pattern but wonder about the stich from row 6 and forward to the length of the scoodie, is it really sc? I think if you look at the picture they are some larger stitches? Please help! And thanks for a lovely pattern♡♡

    1. Hi Madeleine, I see what you mean, but the stitches are worked into the front loops only, which makes it look like they are longer. At the same time, this pattern is so simple, you could easily use hdc’s or dc’s to finish this scarf. :)

  2. When I learnt to crochet, double crochet was the hook into the stitch without wool over the needle, wool over hook and then pull through both stitches….so would single crochet be the equivalent, and what about half double crochet, would that entail putting the wool over the hook and then putting it into the stitch, wool over hook and pull through both stitches on the hook?
    It would appear that the sc [single crochet]is equivalent to what I know as dc [double crochet]
    and dc is what I know as a treble, wool over hook pull through first stitch and then wool over again and thro the remaining stitch???
    I would appreciate clarification please. Thank you

    1. Hi Joan, Yes you are correct on all points. :) The single crochet is the equivalent of the UK double crochet. The half double crochet is as you say, except you have three loops on the hook and you pull through all three loops at the last stage.

  3. The best shawl I’ve ever seen 😍 in my most favourite color.
    It is wonderful, thank you.
    I’m certainly making this one for my self 🥰🤗
