Through Thick and Thin Hooded Scarf (Scoodie) Crochet Pattern

About a month ago, Darn Good Yarn contacted me through Instagram asking if I was interested in doing a collaboration. I was thrilled as I've never collaborated with a yarn company before!

After looking through their website, I found that they have many novelty yarns. There are so many that I would love to try but obviously, I can't be so greedy! I end up picking Darn Good Yarn's Variegated Thick and Thin Wool. The thickness of this yarn ranges from worsted to chunky weighted yarn. I love the texture that it creates using basic stitches.

Some call them "scoodies". Some call them "hooded scarves". And then there's this word "snoodie" that comes up every now and then. I assume they're all the same thing? Whatever you wanna call them, these wearable pieces are great at keeping you warm!

The texture of the yarn is a little scratchy as it is with most wool, I believe. Through the thick and thin texture of this yarn, this hooded scarf worked up really quick with a 10 mm crochet hook and can keep you warm all winter!

And boy oh boy, can this scoodie can keep you warm all winter! I couldn't wear it for too long when I was photographing it because it was just too hot. I had to take it off a few times because I thought I might overheat. Of course, it doesn't help that I was photographing it indoors at the end of September. But now I know that this will be my go-to piece if I am going to be outdoors for a period of time in the winter (e.g. waiting for the bus).

Ch 27
Row 1: Hdc into the third loop from the hook, hdc in the next 24 sts and turn. Now working on the other side of the chain, hdc in the next 25 sts (50 sts)
Row 2-14: Ch 2, turn, 50 hdc (50 sts)
Row 15-16: Ch 2 (this one counts as a st), turn, fpdc into the next st, [1 bpdc, 1 fpdc] x 24 times (50 sts)

You should now have a rectangle that is closed on two of the sides to form a hood. Without cutting the yarn, you are now going to start working in rounds from here on.

Ch 3, slst join to the last st of the row to shape the hood
Round 1: Ch 2, dc in the 3 chains, 3 dc along the edge of the fpdc sts, 41 along the edge of the hdc sts, 3 dc along the edge of the fpdc sts, slst join (50 sts)

Fasten off and weave in the ends.
