Hooded Scarf 1972
For this week I have another pattern from Columbia-Minerva's Teach Yourself to Crochet from 1972. This is perfect for a beginner, not so great for the heat we're expected to get in Minnesota this coming week.
This is just a long scarf that is folded in half with 8 inches sewn by the fold to make the hood. It uses worsted weight yarn and since I liked the color combination in the photo I tried to replicate that with yarn I had. I used vintage Columbia Minerva Performer in Brown, some Red Heart Super Saver in Buff and an unknown yarn in Magenta.
This a one row repeat that goes; sc, chain 2 across and repeats with the next row having the sc in the chain 2 space. This is really easy and works up very quickly with the I hook. I didn’t think the fringe was necessary and I really hate making fringe so I skipped that.
This one fit and it was super easy and fun. This gets a 5 out of 5 stars!

Super cute! I love this one- and lots of practical applications for it. In a few months. Totally five stars.

Hi, Alana! Imagine my surprise to see the Hooded Scarf pattern! I made some of these for gifts in my early crochet days in 1970s. I mostly used the c9lors of light blue and dark brown. I still have the pattern book somewhere around here. I’m sure it would be so much easier for me to work up than it was years ago.

That's awesome that you've done this one before. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Hopefully before winter creeps in and it's harder to get out.

I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
