I have had so many requests for a pattern for the hooded scarf I knitted for my daughter. I made it up as I went along as I couldn't find a pattern I liked, but after having so many requests for it I have had to write the pattern down. Please be patient as I have never written a pattern before ( never made anything up knitting wise before either lol) The scarf is knitted in Garter stitch as it was quicker for me and I needed to get the scarf done fairly fast lol. So here goes.
This was made for a 4 year old girl (modelling the scarf in the photos lol)

I used a self striping DK wool and 4mm (size 8 UK / size 6 USA) needles

cast on 102 stitches
row 1 - K2 *P2, K2 , repeat from * to end
row 2 - P2 * K2, P2, repeat from * to end
repeat these 2 rows 4 more times.
Stocking stitch until work measures 20cm and cast off.
Fold work in half along the cast off edge and sew together, This creates the "hood"

cast on 30 stitches
row 1 - K2 *P2, K2 , repeat from * to end
row 2 - P2 * K2, P2, repeat from * to end
repeat these 2 rows 4 more times.
garter stitch until work measures 158cm
next row K2 *P2, K2 , repeat from * to end
next row P2 * K2, P2, repeat from * to end
repeat these 2 rows 4 more times.
Cast off.
Turn up the pockets - about 12cm at each end of the scarf and sew the sides of the pockets.
Fold the scarf in half to find the middle and pin to the seam at the back of the hood. Sew the scarf to the hood.

As i said before I only did garter stitch as it was quicker but you could knit the scarf in whichever pattern you like and if you dont want pockets you don't have to turn up the ends. I put pockets on as it means my daughter doesn't have gloves to lose at school now lol

If you know how to adapt a pattern I don't see why not, You just make a larger hood and a longer scarf.

Thank you so much! My daughter has been asking for one of these.

That is very sweet and so practical. Much harder to lose such a significant piece than mittens and hats.

:lol: thank you, what a nice pattern. I need a pattern for three sisters. This is perfect because I don't have any sizes and they live in a different country
