This crochet hooded scarf makes a great gift idea. The open crochet lace looks extraordinary in rows of soft self-striping yarn.
Once the stitch pattern is mastered, it works up quickly. This is a great use of Lion Brand “Shawl in a Ball” and “Shawl in a Cake” that so many of you picked up in the great sales Lion Brand has been having lately.

Fold scarf in half, measure 10″ from the fold down and seam along that 10″.
Using any sturdy object that measures about 9 inches (I tend to use a DVD case), wind yarn around until you have a nice amount of strands.
Carefully remove so that you can insert a separate 10″ piece of yarn around the top and tie securely. This will be the tie you use to fasten to the top of the hood. Cut all the strands of the “ring” at the bottom. Attach another 10″ piece of yarn about 1″ down from the top of the tassel.
Using a yarn needle, pull the ends of that strand toward the inside of the tassel. Attach tassel to the top of the hood and weave in ends securely.
Using yarn needle, weave in ends securely.
