After the big success of my Puff Pocket Shawl, Wave After Wave Pocket Shawl and Feather Hooded Pocket Shawl, I just had to make another one. This hooded scarf features the chevron stitch which creates beautiful textured waves. I have added tassels on both ends and optionally you can also add pockets. Scroll down for my free pattern and step by step video tutorial.
I have made my own variation of the chevron stitch: usually it’s made with double crochet (dc), but I use front post double crochet (fpdc) to create that extra texture. Peaks are made with increases, and valleys with decreases. Below you can find my free pattern (including video tutorial) to make a hooded shawl.

See photo below. Fold the sides of the hoodie together and place a stitch marker. Now fold the scarf and place a stitch marker.
Place hoodie above scarf and line out the stitch markers. This will make sure your hoodie is placed exactly in the middle of your scarf. Sew hoodie onto scarf.
Fold hoodie in half with wrong sides facing out and close the top of the hoodie. Turn work inside out, fasten off and weave in your ends.
