Hello Makers! 🤗 Ooooh the cozies of the Kunik Scoodie are endless! The kunik Scoodie makes me feel like I’m ready for the runway AND the snow lodge. It’s such an Easy Crochet Hooded Scarf pattern.

Crochet hooded pocket scarves have gained immense popularity, and it’s no wonder why.

These versatile accessories combine fashion and functionality in a unique way. Let’s explore why these scarves are a winter must-have.

Style and Warmth in One

Fashion-Forward: Hooded pocket scarves add a trendy touch to any winter outfit. With a hood that frames your face elegantly, you can stay warm without sacrificing style.

The scarf’s design allows you to layer up while maintaining a chic appearance.

Cozy Comfort: The fur lining in the Kunik Scoodie adds a luxurious touch. It not only keeps you incredibly warm but also provides a soft, comforting feel against your skin.

You’ll look and feel fabulous, even on the chilliest days.

Functionality Redefined

Hands-Free Convenience: The pockets in the Kunik Scoodie is a game-changer. No need to fumble for gloves or struggle with a handbag.

Slip your hands into the conveniently placed pockets to keep them toasty and free for other activities.

Hooded Protection: The attached hood serves as a practical shield against wind, rain, and snow.

It keeps your head and neck snugly covered, preventing the cold from sneaking in. Say goodbye to those pesky drafts.

Customization: This scarf is incredibly versatile. You can choose the yarn color and texture that best suits your personal style.

Whether you opt for a bold, vibrant shade or a classic neutral, your scarf becomes a unique reflection of your taste. (See testers photos below)

Craft Your Own

The best part? You can create your own hooded pocket scarf! With a few simple materials and a crochet hook, you can embark on a crafting journey that ends with a beautiful, functional accessory.

Personalize it further by selecting the perfect faux fur lining to match your vision.

I’m very excited to be releasing this hooded scarf just in time for the leaves 🍂 to start falling, and the crispness of autumn 🍁 is upon us! It’s warm, the fabric is thick and the faux fur adds a nice spark to it. When I first starting working on this pattern, I was excited to work up a scarf with a hood. I often came across them on Pinterest and a magazine was calling for submissions for hooded scarves, so I got to work creating it.

Kunik Scoodie Easy Crochet Hooded Scarf

I added a few toggle buttons to give it an extra bit of functionality so you can close up the hood to keep your neck warm, and close the pockets up to keep your stuff from falling out too! 💕

A little bit about the yarn…

Kunik Scoodie – Easy Crochet Hooded Pocket Scarf

I used two different yarns to create the Kunik Scoodie. The first is Hometown USA by Lion Brand, which has a wonderful selection of colorways including variegated. The second yarn I used is Go For Faux, also by Lion Brand.

Go For Faux has to be one of my favorite yarns because it has such beautiful colors, and I love the look of fur, but definitely not into hurting animals to get it (vegetarian here)!

So this yarn is perfect to get that look without hurting anyone 😀.  Check out all the great colors and see what you can come up with, or use my recommended colors and create a replica of the one I made (which I happen to think is perfect) 😉.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

The Kinuk Scoodie uses only a few basic stitches and a couple of special stitches, which makes it a great project for a beginner to jump into something a little more advanced. The construction is very simple and easy to follow too. The scarf and hood are created separately and sewn together.

There are 4 sizes available, the Adult Teen sizes are one in the same. My tester for the teen stressed that she would like the adult size, so I combined the two. There are also versions for a child size and toddler.

Here are some of the versions from my testers! Thanks you guys so much!

Forming the Pockets:

Grab 4 stitch markers.  Lay scarf flat.  Measure 12” (30cm) [10” (25cm), 10” (25cm)] in from each end and place a stitch marker on both sides of scarf.  (when folded up, pocket should measure 6” (15cm) [5.5” (12cm), 5” (12cm)]  (of course, you can customize how deep your pockets will be).

Now we are going to extend the pockets to create a fur border, using the faux fur…

*Using Pomeranian (A2), attach yarn at rightmost stitch of tip of scarf, then:

Row 1:  Ch 1, sc 1 in same as ch 1, sc 1 in ea st across, end last st with new color Baked Alaska (A1) – 12 (10, 8) sc.  (this will be your wrong side (WS), mark with stitch marker)

Follow down to other side of scarf. (wrong side still facing you) and repeat from * to *

Pocket Assembly:

Turn scarf over (RS facing you), fold up pockets, lining up the top of the MC section with the markers (the fur portion will extend past the markers).

Repeat this section on both ends of scarf.

Using a separate length of MC, whip stitch up to the fur, then using the A1 & A2 tails, whip stitch fur section. Turn pockets so right side is facing out.

Tie off, weave in all tails.


note:  mark WS with stitch marker

with MC, Ch 52 (44, 40)

Row 1 (WS):  Starting in 3rd ch from hook, *hdc cluster (yo, insert hook in next st, [yo, pull up a loop]) 2 times. Yo, pull through all loops* – repeat from *…* to end of row – 50 (42, 38)

Row 2 (RS):  Ch 1, turn. *sc 1, dc 1* repeat from *…* to end of row – 50 (42, 38)

Repeat row 2, until it measures 6.5” [16cm] ( 5” [12cm], 4.25” [10.8cm]) from row 1 to last completed row.

note:  the number of rows may vary depending on your tension, when you reach the measuremets above, continue working with your MC and complete the following decrease rows.

Decrease rows:

Tie off, leave long tail for sewing hood.

Hood Assembly:

Bring WS’s together, whip stitch the back of the hood from bottom to top.

Fur Border for Hood:

Row 1:  Ch 1, hdc 1 in same st, hdc 1 in each st across, change to A1 at end of last st, turn – 50 (42, 38) sts.

Row 2:  with A1, ch 2, puff 1 in ea st across, tie off, leave a long tail for weaving – 50 (42, 38) sts.

Hood to Scarf Assembly:

Place the scarf on a flat surface with the pocket side (RS) down. Place hood flat, centred with front RS facing you.

Center the hood:  to check center, measure from edge of pocket to edge of hood. Make sure measurement is same on both sides. Adjust as needed.  Using MC, begin sewing MC section of hood to scarf, leaving the fur section alone.

Creating the collar:

We are going to extend the fur border onto the main body of the scarf, then sew the extending border to the hood border.  Begin by laying scarf flat, with inside of hood facing you.  Starting with the right side and using A2, attach yarn in 1st visible stitch on body of scarf, just below fur hood border, where hood attaches to scarf, then…

Row 1:  Ch 1, hdc 1 in same st, hdc 1 in next 3 sts, sc 1 in each of next 4 sts, cut & tie off (see video at bottom of post for help if needed).

Row 2 (is worked on top of Row 1):  Using A1, join in top of first hdc created from Row 1 above, then…

Ch 1, puff 1 in same as join, puff 1 in ea of next 2 stitches, hdc 1 in next st, sc 1 in each of next 3 sts, (working into MC now), sc 1 in ea of next sts until you measure 9” (22.8cm), 7” (17.78cm), 6” (15cm) from starting point to end.

Repeat on other side.

Joining collar to hood border:

Weave in tails on bottom end of collar, then use A1 & A2 tails to join collar to hood, matching up the colors, and closing the gaps.

Weave in all tails.

Toggle Button Placement:


with RS facing you, place toggle horizontally inside pocket – make sure it is centered so it will be in the center of the fur.  Using MC, sew button to scarf.  Repeat on other pocket.


with RS of scarf facing you, on right side of scarf, place bottom toggle vertically, about 1/2” above the end of the bottom of the collar.  Place 2nd & 3rd toggles 2” (20cm) apart above one another.

Congratulations! You’re Finished!
