Crochet Dragon Hooded Scarf

Hello everyone. Todays pattern is for a dragon hooded scarf. Winter weather is well and truly with us now, thus it’s the season of hats scarves and gloves. However getting kids to wear all three and more importantly not lose them can be nigh on impossible sometimes.

Therefore a rather fabulous alternative is to have something that combines the three into one. This dragon hooded scarf is practical and with the horns and spikes is going to be popular with all young kids.
The pattern is designed for ages 4-8.

    it’s so cute! I’ve never been good at crochet. I’ve tried several times and I just suck at it. Oh well, at least I’m good at other things so I don’t feel too bad that I can’t crochet.

    mhm I once had to crochet pot holders in primary school and made a right mess of them, think my mum finished them for me as I was so gutted, haven’t done anything crochet since then – think I was traumatised 🙂 but do love your design & always admire people who are more dexterous with needles 🙂

    The scarf is adorable. Maybe I will have to get my crochet hooks out again and give it a try. Haven’t crocheted in several years, but my grandson would love this – he loves anything with a hood. Thank you for sharing the instructions!
