hooded scarf

I'm sorry I don't have a photo of the finished product, but the fabric would look a lot like the photo here.  This is a photo of a mobius scarf made with the same stitch pattern.

Hood:
ch 34.
1.  sc in 2nd ch from hook. (ch 1, skip 1, sc in next) to end, ch 1, turn.
2. sc in ch 1 sp. (ch 1, sk sc, sc in ch sp) to end. End with sc in turning ch.
repeat row 2 to desired length. Fasten off.( I crocheted 60 rows before fastening off; when folded in half this should form a square)
Fold in half and sew up one edge.
Scarf:
ch 20 (or desired width for scarf, using multiples of 2) make scarf same way as hood, repeating row 2 to desired length.
fold scarf in half and line up crease with midpoint on hood. Sew together.

Patriots graph

I haven't made this pattern, the graph was a request. I do not have yarn amounts but it is designed to make a twin sized bedspread when using an H hook and 2 dc per square.  I'd suggest working it from the side to avoid so many color changes happening at once. If this doesn't print out properly, I can send you a pdf if you send your request for it to kendrascrochet@gmail.com

Good luck and enjoy!

Penn State Nittany Lion graph

Using an H hook and 2 dc per square should give you a throw that's nearly twin sized. If you'd like a twin sized afghan,  put a border around it! Enjoy!
