GAUGE:
5 V-sts + 9 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over Scarf pattern. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook.
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
V-st (Hdc, ch 1, hdc) all in indicated st or sp.

NOTES:
Scoodie is worked in two halves.

The halves are joined, then the Hood is worked across one edge.

Pockets are worked in the rnd; Scarf is worked back and forth in rows.
