Scooby Doo is the heart of the show. His heart, appetite, and antics are all integral to the Mysteries, Inc. team. When I thought about Scooby-Doo and his quintessential antics, I knew that I needed a hat and cowl to capture Scooby.

His hat needed to be intriguing, but not difficult. Holding two strands together on this project allows for a thicker fabric while boosting the texture. The colors blend and contrast as they interplay. For his hat, I chose an offset broken ribbing. With only a seven stitch repeat, this hat is easily sized.

This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
