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!
