AU 6.5 mm hook/ US K/10.5
AU 2 strands of 8 ply/ US 2 strands of DK/Light Worsted

US terms used through out pattern
Stitches Used
CH= chain
HDC= half double crochet
BLO= back loop only

Please note:
This pattern is written for a hdc blo, scoodie, the ch 2 will be your first hdc of each row of the scarf and hood

To begin your scoodie, make a chain the length you require your scarf to be (approx 1.5 meters long) (59 inches)

Row 1, work 1 hdc into 2nd ch from hook, work 1 hdc in each ch space to end, ch 2 and turn

Row 2, work 1 hdc into the blo of the next hdc and every hdc to end, work 1 hdc into the top of the ch 2, ch 2 and turn

Row 3, repeat row 2 until your scarf is the width you require, approx 10 to 15 cm wide (4 to 6 inches wide)…do not ch 2 on your last row, break off yarn

Now onto the hood placement:
Place scarf very loosely around your neck and even lengths hanging on both sides, mark both sides of the scarf that meet at your chin, Do not stretch the scarf ! the hood will be attached on either side of these markers. Count the st’s from one marker to another, you will need an even number of st’s, add a st to make it even if you need to. Fold the scarf in half to ensure you have the st’s centred on the scarf.
You will now be making your hoodie from 1 st marker to the other.

Make sure you are working on the opposite row to the row you ended with on your scarf
Row 1, join in yarn at st marker with a sl st and ch 2, work 1 hdc into the blo of the next hdc and every hdc up to and into the st with the st marker, ch 2 and turn

Row2, work 1 hdc into the blo of the next hdc and every hdc to end, work 1 hdc into the top of the ch 2, ch 2 and turn

Row 3, repeat row 2 for the height required of you hood (it will be joined across the top centre of your last row, last row do not ch 2) do not break off yarn

Joining the top of the hood:

Fold your hood in half, to join you will alternate between a hdc on the side closest to you and a sl st into the back of the st on the other side, *(1 hdc into the front st, 1 sl st into the back st)*  repeat from*to* to end, break off yarn and sew in ends

Try on your Scoodie!

If your scoodie hood part is too small, please refer to this video for corrections
