It’s so fluffy!!!!

It’s soft and furry and oh so cute! Who doesn’t need a sweet Cotton Candy hooded scarf WITH pockets! Nobody else ever wears leggings and a sweatshirt to their kids’ sports practices or games? Maybe when you run them to the bus. It’s a bit chilly out and you might need to carry your keys, phone, wallet or have a place for your hands. I feel like an infomercial for this crazy cute thing! And adding the fur trim just makes it so sweet!!! Scoodies, as they’re called in the world of crochet, are a great addition to most any winter wardrobe! And the Cotton Candy hooded scarf is a great thing to have hanging by the front door to grab when you head out!

This pattern works up pretty quickly with single and double crochet alternating stitches to give you a little texture and fluff. Would be great in a lot of different color combinations. Red with White trim for Valentine’s or Christmas. Pastels for Easter. You can even find the fur like yarn in many different colors and could maybe do school or sports team colors!

BEGINNER FRIENDLY! Written in American Terms.

Works up fast, just SC and DC alternating. You don’t really need to count rows, just have your tape measure ready when it’s getting good and long!


6” = @24 ROWS


CH 27

ROW 1 – Turn and SC in 2nd from hook, SC across (26), CH 1 and turn

ROW 2 – SC in 2nd space from hook, DC in next, [SC, DC repeat across], last stitch should be DC, CH 1 and turn

ROW 3-285 (-/+) Repeat ROW 2, SC,DC,repeat.

When your scarf is about 72” long, cut and leave a tail of about 10” (for sewing up one side of pocket)


Add hood to the cotton candy hooded scarf

To create your hood, lay your scarf out flat and fold in half

Mark the middle with a stitch marker

Measure 8” from middle out on both sides and mark

Creating about a 16” area on the rough edge

Remove your middle stitch marker after marking both sides

Placing hook at one stitch marker, SL ST to start hood

Then SC across, from marker to marker in the rough edge

about 66 stitches. Placing each SC as evenly as you can.

If 66 SC doesn’t work for your space, you can do less or more SC

Keeping in mind you need an EVEN NUMBER of SC to start your hood.

Once you’ve completed the first row of SC, CH 1 and turn

ROW 2 – SC in 2nd space from hook, DC in next, [SC, DC repeat across], last stitch should be DC, CH 1 and turn

ROW 3-30 (+/-) Repeat ROW 2, SC,DC,repeat.

You will want to measure and be sure your hood section is about 8” or so tall before stopping.


How to sew the hood on the cotton candy scarf

(you can cut your end, leaving a tail for sewing ORkeep hook in and join with SL ST)

Lay your scarf out flat

Bring the top corners of your hood section in till they meet.

Now forming a triangle

Join the seam from front to back either by SL ST or Whip stitching with your end.

Turn your hood with seam on the inside and you now have a hooded scarf and are ready to add the pockets!

Pockets for your hooded scarf


What makes this cotton candy hooded scarf even more fun and useful? Pockets!!!

Laying your scoodie flat, seam of your hood on the inside. You are working on the outside, right side of your project.

on either side.
