Ambrosia Hooded Scarf

This sweet and Red Riding Hood-esque scarf is inspired in part by the heavenly Ambrosia apple. The scarf can be worn with the hood up or down and the hood has a rounded top to create a more wearable design. Large pockets will keep hands warm, making it the perfect accessory to see you through from fall to winter.

Pattern Notes

The scarf section is worked first horizontally along the long edge.

The hood is then worked by adding extra rows in the center of the scarf; this section is increased at the edges and decreased in the center towards the end of the hood to produce a slightly rounded shape.

The top of the hood is then seamed together using mattress stitch.

The pockets are made separately and crocheted on while adding the sc edging to the whole item.

A final edging round of reverse sc completes it.
