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."
