Arco Hooded Scarf A Free Crochet Pattern With Texture

Sharing is caring!

The Arco is a textured hooded scarf pattern that works up all in one piece! This cozy scarf comes with a snuggly hood that’s perfect for fall and winter.

Crochet scarves make great gifts especially when the cold weather sets in. This scarf design would be lovely in any color, maybe pick your loved ones favorite colors to showcase the textured stitches.

While a scarf is not as fast as making a hat, the repeat is really easy to remember. I had so much fun making this one while relaxing in front of the tv! So get started soon and this beauty will be ready in plenty of time for gifting.

Adjustments

If you like the scarf crochet pattern, but prefer to not have the hood you can easily do that. The pattern is worked width-wise so you can just skip extending out the hood section and continue working the length of the scarf.

You can also seam together the ends to create a circle, or infinity scarf. I love this style as there are no long tails to deal with.

Stitches

There are only 2 stitches used in the stitch pattern, the mini bean and the half double crochet. To keep the texture interesting there are 2 and 4 sets of the repeat row which alternate throughout.

Materials

  • Furls Wander Yarn* #4 medium yarn (100% acrylic) 120 yd (109 m) per 100 g ball in shade Velvet: 7 balls, or 840 yd comparable yarn.
  • 5 mm (US Size H-8) crochet hook* (or size needed to meet gauge).
  • Measuring tape, yarn needle, and scissors.
  • Optional stitch marker for beginning of rows.

Notes

  1. Ch 1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.
  2. Stitch multiple is an odd number, and not the first 2 chains of the starting chain will not count as a stitch.
  3. Each mini bean stitch includes a chain 1, count both of these in the stitch count.

Skill Level

While the repeat makes this an easy pattern, since it uses a special stitch I’ve labeled it as intermediate, but an adventurous beginner could also make this scarf!
