Hooded Timber Wolf Scarf (Free Crochet Pattern)

by - November 29, 2019


Dear fellow crocheters,

I'm so excited to share with you my newest design: the Hooded Timber Wolf Scarf!


It comes with cozy hand pockets, and you can wear it akin to a vest over your body, or wrapped snugly around your neck!

 

If you love keeping your head and neck warm, I think it's the perfect accessory for cold, winter seasons.  Plus... wolf ears?  Adds to the cute factor, doesn't it?

 

You might notice that the yarn I used is very unique!  It's Lion Brand's Go for Faux yarn, which results in this beautiful, fluffy texture.  I first used Go for Faux yarn with my Hooded Bear Cowl project, and had so much fun with it that it inspired me to make another design!

Introduction:
The Hooded Timber Wolf Scarf is a fun and whimsical winter accessory! It comes with cozy hand pockets, and you can wear it akin to a vest over your body, or wrapped snugly around your neck. This furry snoodie is quick to work up with simple stitches, a large hook, and super bulky textured yarn. Minimal sewing is involved as the hood and scarf sections are crocheted all as one piece, with the ears separately attached at the end. The animal ears can resemble a cat or fox as well. This is great for Halloween or cosplay costumes, as a birthday or Christmas holiday gift, or just for anyone who loves staying cozy and cute during the cold!
     This pattern features Lion Brand Yarn’s Go for Faux yarn, which creates the softest hooded scarf you’ll ever crochet. It has a lovely and relaxed drape as well, without feeling heavy on the head. You can also opt for similar furry or fluffy yarns!
