A cosy wool knit hooded scarf will keep your head warm and dry while also keeping your neck warm. By knitting with 100-percent wool, the hooded scarf will be water resistant. Knowing the basics of how to knit is required before tackling the hooded scarf, but the pattern is uncomplicated and suitable for knitting novices. The same pattern could also be knit with eyelash yarn, found at speciality knitting supply stores, for a hooded scarf that looks like it is made of fur.

Cast on 30 stitches.

Knit every row until the piece measures 48 inches long. Cast off and cut the yarn.

Fold the piece in half, matching up the short ends. Insert safety pins along one edge, from the centre fold to a point 8 inches away along the edge.

Thread the tapestry needle with 36 inches of yarn. Sew the safety pinned edge with the tapestry needle and yarn to make the scarf hood. Cut and knot the yarn. Weave in any loose ends with the tapestry needle.
