I’ve always wanted a daughter so I can be matching with her! At least until she’s old enough to not want to match with her mum… But for now, since Tilly is only 3 months old, she really has no choice! Ha! So when JJ requested a bunny hat (he later decided he doesn’t want one after all), I thought we can all have bunny hats! I made Tilly’s hat using this pattern, but I later decided to make myself a bunny scoodie instead! Why? 1) because it has been freezing here! 2) because my hair is at that awkward growing stage (earlier in the year I got myself a pixie cut) and I need to hide it until it’s long enough to not stand up at every single angle! 3) I didn’t have a scoodie and I wanted one. The problem is… I couldn’t find a scoodie pattern I truly like! So I decided to make a pattern instead! I love how it turned out and I’d love to share it with you!

- Pattern is written in US terms
- Pattern is fully customizable by changing the amount of the starting/foundation chain in both the scarf and the hood part, and by adding or doing less rows in both the scarf and the hood part.
- For the scarf, you can either crochet 2 strands of yarns at the same time (which is what I did), or use a chunky yarn.
Hood Pattern (using one strand of yarn and a 5mm hook):
Row 1: Foundation DC until it measures 26”, turn,
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in each dc across, turn
Repeat Row 2 until your piece measures 13” in length.
Fasten off. Leave long tail for sewing.
Fold hood in half, and sew one of the long edges (as shown by the red arrows) together.
Scarf Pattern (using 2 strands of yarns, or a chunky yarn, and a 10mm hook):
Row 1: Foundation HDC until it measures 50”, turn,
Row 2: In the back loops only, ch 2 (counts as hdc), hdc in each hdc across, turn,
Row 3: Ch 2 (counts as hdc), in both loops, hdc in each hdc across, turn,
Repeat Row 2 and 3 until your piece measures 6”. End in a Row 2.
Either slip stitch or sew the 2 ends together.
Align the longest edge of the hood to the scarf and sew them together.
Once sewn, your piece should look like this:
Ears Pattern (using one strand of yarn and a 5mm hook, make 2):
Row 1: Dc in the 4th ch from hook (counts as dc), 1dc in each ch across, turn, (10dc)
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in the same st, 1dc in each of the next 8 dc, 2dc in last dc, turn, (12dc)
Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in the same st, 1dc in each of the next 10 dc, 2dc in last dc, turn, (14dc)
Row 4: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in the same st, 1dc in each of the next 12 dc, 2dc in last dc, turn, (16dc)
Row 5: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in the same st, 1dc in each of the next 14 dc, 2dc in last dc, turn, (18dc)
Row 6-18: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in each dc across, turn, (18dc)
Do not fasten off!
Ch 1, sc across evenly up to the 1st row.
On the other side of the beginning chain, do a *sc, hdc, hdc, dc, tr, tr, dc, hdc, hdc, sc* across.
Sc evenly down to the bottom.
Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.
Thread the tail and wiggle it back and forth through the stitches of the last row to the other side. Pull tight until the bottom of the ear scrunched together. Secure the scrunch by sewing through the scrunch a few times. Do not fasten off!
Position your ears on your hood and sew them on.
And you’re done!
Now I can match with Tilly!
