Kodiak Hooded Pocket Scarf

Collaborations, Free PatternsAlexandra TavelComment

The third and final pattern in my collaboration series with Lion Brand Yarn and Michael's has finally arrived. Like the Cambria Wrap and Oakley Super Scarf, this new design uses the bonus bundle supersized yarn skeins from LB currently exclusive to Michael's Stores - this time in fan favorite Wool-Ease Thick and Quick. Behold the Kodiak Hooded Pocket Scarf, available as a free pattern below or a printable, ad-free PDF here. The full yarn kit can be purchased through Lion Brand here.

Wool-Ease Thick & Quick is probably my all-time favorite yarn. It comes in a huge array of colors, is super speedy for both knit and crochet, and it's incredibly durable and soft. It's always my go-to for chilly weather accessories and garments. I used it in one of my first ever designs - the Armor Scarf, which is a multi-functional piece that is part poncho, part scarf/cowl, and part hood. When I said out to design this new piece I wanted to again do something multi-functional. 

I've been on a pocket kick lately after releasing my knit Cliffside Cardigan and crochet Harold Cardigan and the Kodiak Hooded Pocket Scarf is now part of the club. Part scarf, part hood, part pocket ... it's my new fave multi-functional piece.

This piece can easily top a sweater or fitted jacket and can be worn with the hood up or down, or you can put it under a bigger coat for an extra layer to shield you from the cold. 

This is an easy level crochet pattern and the techniques involved are half double crochet and seaming. It's also super fast to work up! I hope you enjoy the free pattern below.
