Here’s a hooded scarf pattern that’s easy to knit and fast to complete. The mock rib pattern used works up quickly and is attractive from either side.

The construction is simple: knit a rectangle until you run out of yarn, fold it in half and sew up the back partway down from the top to make the hood.

While the pattern is written for a bulky yarn, you can easily resize it for any yarn -- for a lighter yarn, cast on more stitches and knit more rows. You can make the scarf ends longer or shorter by knitting more or less.
