A Hooded Scarf made with Two Caron Cakes for WIP Wednesday

I rarely make things for myself and I’m not a big fan of wearing hats but with this frigid weather we’re having this winter, I thought I’d like something to pop on my head when it’s extra chilly out.  I found a wonderfully warm free pattern for a Hooded Scarf from Oombawka Design Crochet that has the added benefit of helping me unload a couple of skeins of Caron Cakes yarn that I’ve had for a while now.

I love doing the pattern which is mostly, so far, a simple single crochet, half-double crochet, and double crochet stitch in every third stitch but it’s taking me a very long time to finish each row so I haven’t gotten very far yet.  I think it will be extra warm and cozy when it’s done so it’s well worth my time.

I’m using the Caron Cakes in the color Cookies and Cream with a 5mm hook.  I’ll try to remember to post a photo of the scarf when it’s done!

If you want to see what it will look like upon completion or make one for yourself, you can find the pattern by visiting:  Faerie Mist Hooded Scarf at Oombawka Design Crochet

  1. Lovely yarn. I’m looking forward to getting my hook out when I get home tonight and working some rows on my charming harbour blanket. Looking forward to seeing your finished head gear x

  4. I, too, have yarn stash that needs to be used – and I am determined to do my darndest to accomplish this! So far to this end I have made a wrap for my niece, a hat for my SIL, and I’m in the process of making a striped afghan. I’ve also seen that Oombawka design and I’m thinking of using it for another afghan. Please post a pic of your completed scarf – I’m sure it’ll look great!

      Thank you. It sounds like you’re doing a great job at stash-busting your collection. I really do like the Oombawka stitch too. I bet it will look great on an afghan!

  6. I was just about to buy that exact yarn, but hadn’t used Caron Cakes so wasn’t sure, I’m glad to hear you think it’s nice to work with.
