Juniper Hooded Scarf

If you’ve never crocheted cables before, this is a perfect first crochet cable pattern. The scarf portion is made straight and long, then the center portion is sewn up to make a hood. If you prefer your scarves sans hood, simply skip this step and you’ll have a nice long accessory to wear all season.

Pattern

Scarf

Before beginning, cut about a length of yarn, about a yard long. This will be used to use to seam the hood, while keeping the ball of yarn attached to the scarf to complete the border.

Ch 24, turn.

Work Rows 1-12 of Cable Panel 11 (13) times, then work Rows 1-7 once more.

Place a removable stitch marker into the live stitch and keep yarn attached for border.

Block piece to measure 7½” [19 cm] wide by 58 (68)” / [147.5 (172.5) cm] long.

Seam the Hood

Fold scarf in half. Measure 10″ from the fold and use removable stitch markers to pin the 2 pieces of fabric together from the fold along the 10″. (Note: Pin along the same edge of the scarf where the yarn is still attached.) Use the length of yarn that was cut at the beginning of the scarf to seam the 2 pieces together along the pinned edge, being careful not to make the seam too bulky.

Border

Return held stitch to hook and pull tail so it’s snug around the hook.

Cont working around the outside edge of the scarf with the right side facing as follows:

Rnd 1: Rotate work 90º clockwise to begin working along the selvedge edge. Ch 1, work 1 sc into the side of each row to 1 row before the hood fold, work sc3tog into the next row, the seam, then the first row after the fold, then work 1 sc into the side of each row to the other end of the scarf, work 3 sc into the corner, work 1 sc into each sc along the foundation chain edge of the scarf, working 3 sc into the next corner, work 1 sc into the side of each row to the end of the scarf, working 3 sc into the next corner, then work 1 sc into the top of each st along the last edge, working 2 sc into the last st (which is the same st used for the first sc of this round), sl st into the first sc to join. Do not turn.

Rnd 2: Ch 2 (counts as 1 dc), *work bpdc around next sc, work fpdc around next sc; rep from * around, working 3 sts around each corner st, sl st into first st to join.

Fasten off.

Finishing
