Crochet Ocean Breeze Hooded Pocket Scarf
I am really loving the scarves and wraps with hoods and pockets at the moment! So I thought I would have a go at crocheting one. I am very happy to be sharing the pattern of the crocheted Ocean Breeze Hooded Pocket Scarf with you! It honestly reminds me of a nice clear ocean. This crochet hooded pocket scarf uses the basic stitches in crochet so it is great for beginners who can double crochet (US terminology) and seam sections of the scarf together. Although, if some parts are confusing, there is a YouTube Tutorial at the end of the page. I don’t know if this Ocean Breeze Hooded Pocket Scarf suits me, but it is definitely comfy and soft and I feel like I bring a piece of home with me when I wear this scarf out and about.
The hooded pocket scarf can be worn over a cardi, jumper or coat in winter, with the hood up to keep your head warm, and hands in the pockets so they don’t freeze. Although this scarf may have a hood and two pockets, it can also act as a wrap as well so it is extremely versatile.
This Ocean Breeze Hooded Scarf pattern is designed to use 2.5, so technically 3 skeins of Lion Brand Yarn Homespun Thick and Quick because you, unfortunately, can’t buy half a skein 🙁 Every time I walked passed Homespun Thick and Quick at my local craft store, I would always pick it up, feel how soft and unique it was, but then put it back down because I wasn’t sure how it would crochet up. I am super excited that I finally decided to take a chance on this amazing yarn to crochet this Ocean Breeze Hooded Pocket Scarf! It turned out beautifully soft, silky and super bulky! It is like having a nice warm blanket wrapped around your neck even when you are outside. I truly hope you enjoy the free pattern below.

Row 1: Ch 2 and dc 1 into 1st st where you chained 2. Dc 1 into each of the next 30 sts, turn your work (31 dc)
Row 2-9: Ch 2, dc 1 into 1st st, dc 1 into each of the next 30 sts, turn your work (31 dc)
Or repeat row 2 until the rectangle which will become the hood goes over your head loosely.
Secure your work and break yarn, leaving a long enough tail. Fold the work in half (it should look like two triangles) and use your tapestry needle and the long tail to whip stitch from the open mouth up to the fold of the hood.
When you get to the top of the hood, gently poke the top corner inward, creating a flat triangle to make a hood.
Secure your work and weave in all ends.
Fold both of the bottom edges of the scarf upwards to the 30th stitch or approx. 28cm / 11″. Using your tapestry needle and yarn, whip stitch the vertical edges to the body of the scarf, making sure you go through both layers of the folded section. Leave the top section of the pocket open (the horizontal section) to be able to place your hands inside.
Secure your work and weave in all ends.
– If the length of the scarf is too long or too short, you can chain in multiples of 2 + 2 until the chain is long to go from the middle of 1 thigh, over your shoulders, to the middle of the other thigh).
– This scarf is worked in rows as 1 long rectangle, with the bottom edges of the scarf folded upwards to make the pockets. The hood is created by reattaching the yarn near the top of the scarf along the length of the rectangle, then working rows and joining the yarn together as described above.
– The chain 2 at the beginning of each row doesn’t count as a stitch, it is only a turning chain.
