Darkness Hooded Scarf


"Sometimes you just want to wrap yourself up in darkness. Unfortunately, black or dark colored yarns can be difficult to work with, because it’s hard to see the stitches. The softer and fuzzier the black yarn is, the harder it is to see. Well now you can get your softest, snuggliest, blackest yarns out, because this hooded scarf pattern was designed just for them! It would of course work up easily in other colors too. The pattern is available in both written and charted formats."

NotesIn every darkness, there is a little light, if you only know where to look.

HA! Ya gotta love the name of this hooded scarf, "The Darkness". How cool is that? You know what i would love to add to this? A black faux fur trim to frame the face and make it look even more mysterious. Not to mention it would add more warmth around the face and act as a barrier against wind and snow. Make this in a deep, oxblood red, too! Neat idea.

This Darkness Hooded Scarf is very different from other hooded scarfs I've seen or made. To battle the dark black yarn I always use my "the Crochet Lite" hooks they truly help see the stitches better. I like the idea she has to use a running stitch to keep count of the rows. I'm looking forward to making this free crochet hooded scarf pattern.

This Darkness Hooded Scarf is very versatile. It can be worn with the hood off, just let i hang on the shoulder like an ordinary scarf or wear the hood on which makes you look protected from the cold and from the elements. Will also look good in any other color of your choice. I want to make one soon.

My granddaughter is out of her Goth phase, but she would have loved this hooded scarf. I really, really appreciate that this is designed to work all the subsequent stitches into the CHAIN stitches instead of the next regular stitch. This is so helpful when using dark yarns. The other little trick is the unique construction, too! Read the designers notes to see how this scarf differs from most others.
