Woodland Hooded Scarf Crochet Pattern with Video Tutorial

When winter hits, you need more than a crochet hat to keep you warm. Sometimes you need a crochet hat, scarf, and mittens to keep the cold at bay. I have good news for you! The woodland hooded scarf crochet pattern will give you all of that in just one project.

This hooded scarf has beautiful ribbing along the edges and warm pockets for your hands. It is even made with one of my favorite beginner-friendly stitches, the moss stitch.

Crocheting the Hood

From the side that you fastened off. Turn the work and Skip the first 77 Sts. Slip stitch to the next ST.

Continue from this point working towards the other end of the scarf.

Row 17: CH1, SC in BLO to the same ST that you SLST to. SC in BLO of the next 7 STs. *CH1, Skip a ST, SC into CH1 Space,* repeat from *to* a total of 33 times. SC in BLO into next 8 STs. (BLOSC 16, SC 33, CH1 Space 33)

Rows 18 – 49: CH1, turn, SC in BLO of next 8 STs, *CH1, Skip a ST, SC into next CH1 Space,* repeat from *to* a total of 33 times. SC in BLO into next 8 STs. (BLOSC 16, SC 33, CH1 Space 33)

After row 49, fasten off leaving a 24-inch tail.

Take your scarf and fold the hood in half so that the last row can be sewn together using a whip stitch or invisible stitch. Here is a handy video tutorial if you want to learn how to sew crochet pieces together.

Once it is sewn together weave in the rest of your ends.

Now using another long piece of yarn. Fold the ribbed sections at the end of the scarf back onto the moss stitch section of the scarf. Use a yarn needle and yarn to sew up the sides of the scarf to create a pocket on each side of the scarf.

These pockets will keep your hands nice and warm. Once all your ends are woven in, you are ready to brave the cold with this beautiful hooded crochet scarf.

  1. Hello,
    I love your pattern and I’m planning on making it for me but was also wanting to make it for my 4 year old Granddaughter. Do you have a smaller size version of this same pattern,
    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely pattern,

    • I do not as it is a brand new pattern. I know you can shorten the scarf part by subtracting an even number of chains from the foundation chain. You would need to figure out her arm length. You want the scarf to the same length as measuring from fingertips to finger tips, PLUS an additional amount that will be folded back to create the pockets. Once you work up yours, I think you will have a good idea how it is made and be able to adjust it.

        • In row 15 you are working a repeat. The repeat is *CH1, Skip a ST, SC* so the repeat is worked over 2 stitches. You work the repeat 101 times. So 101 repeats*2 stitches per repeat= 202 + 17BLOSC at the beginning of the row + 17BLOSC at the end of the row = 236. (101*2)+17+17=236.

  2. This is such a cute pattern but I only made it to row #40 with 2 skeins. The scarf is the right length and I’m about 4” short of the hood measurement. Hope I can still find the same color!

  3. Your Woodland hooded scarf was the 1st pattern of yours that I tried! Everybody loved it. I made it for my granddaughter a freshmen at NAU, in Falstaff AZ & She has always lived in the sunny southwest. She was here when I finished it. She took off with it before I could get a picture of it. Now everyone wants one. She doesn’t mind the snow now!

  4. I’ve tried to work this pattern 3 times a have had to rip out due to the stitches not lining up. Is there any way to get stitch counts on the first 3 or 4 rows. Also had trouble with the original chain being 237 and then on second row only skipping 1 left me with 236 not 235. Don’t want to give up as I do like the pattern…please help?

    • Hi,
      I am adding some stitch counts to the row. Row 1 will have 236 stitches. You SC in the 2nd CH from the hook then SC 235 more times.
      I will add the stitch counts to the rows you requested. The stitch count does not change if you count chains and single crochets as stitches but I will list how many sc and chs for the first few rows.

  5. Hi! I’m hoping someone can answer this question. Is it a 7mm crochet hook or a #7 crochet hook? I cannot find a 7mm crochet hook anywhere nor is there a letter that corresponds to it. I’m hoping someone can direct me to what the exact hook is that I need and also where I can purchase it. Looking forward to working on this project!

  6. Hello
    I have just started your beautiful pattern. I am on row 16 and was wondering what your scarf width measures. Mine seems small at just 3 in. Wide.

  7. Hi – what is the width of the scarf (not including the hood)? I used a smaller yarn size so I need to make more than 15 rows so hoping to get that size.
    Thank you

    • If you use a size 6 yarn, the yarn will be twice as thick. If you meet the gauge of the pattern to make sure the size is correct, then you will end up with a very dense and possibly stiff scarf. To convert to a size 6 yarn and use a different gauge, you will need to make a shorter starting chain, work fewer rows and pretty much rework the entire pattern. I did this once and made a new pattern using a size 4 yarn. It can be found here: https://www.windingroadcrochet.com/hooded-crochet-scarf-with-pockets/

      • Hi, I’m very new to crocheting. The only yarn I found that I like this scarf to be made of is a size 6. I also got a larger crochet hook (9mm). Do you mind telling the stitch count for size 6 yarn? Is it doable? Am I wasting time and money by going with a thicker yarn?

        • Size 6 is double the thickness of a size 5 yarn. It would require reworking the entire pattern, or you can use a smaller hook and attempt to meet the gauge but that would make the scarf denser and have less drape.

  8. I’m confused as to how much yarn is actually needed. I am crocheting a blanket for a double bed and am on the 3rd 16 ounce ball of yarn and is about half way up the bed so I don’t think this project takes 3 16 ounce balls of yarn. That would be 3 pounds of yarn for a hooded scarf

    • 3 balls of Lion Brand Color Made Easy is what I used. It is a size 5 yarn so it has a different yardage than other size yarns. Sadly this yarn is discontinued but another size 5 (bulky) yarn should work. I would just keep an eye out on the yardage that the yarn skein contains.
