Here's my pattern for a hood scarf. Great beginner project that works up quickly.
WW Yarn-2 colors
Size H hook
Stitches: Single Crochet (SC)
Double Crochet (DC)
Slip Stitch (SL ST)
Chain 25 plus 3 for turning chain (7 inches wide)
dc in 4th ch from hook. dc in each ch across -26 dcs
ch 3 dc in each dc across. Rep for length (100 rows) w/5 inch fringe or (107 rows) without fringe
fold in half,(wrong sides facing) sc one side together to form hood (10 rows from the top down)
turn hood scarf right side out
With right side facing, attach color B to bottom edge of scarf.
* 2 SC around each dc space (big spaces), on sides,(do not work in the scs) work 1 sc in last sc, 2 scs in next space (corner)
1 sc in between dcs on short edges
Repeat from * for the remaining 2 sides. Join to first stitch with a sl st .to first sc. Weave in any ends
I used about 1/2 of a big 16 oz skein of worsted weight acrylic yarn and had plenty left over. You can adapt this pattern to any size you like. Try using different types of yarn, just check your gauge.
