    Cuddlebug Scoodie Pattern

    It’s getting so cold out! As a mom, I definitely worry that my little one won’t be warm enough every single time it gets chilly. So, as a crochet-er, when the air gets brisk, I automatically feel the need to make warm and cosy things for her. This toddler-size scoodie will keep your little one warm and snuggly when they’re out and about.

    How to make a Cuddlebug Scoodie

    (18-24 month toddler size scoodie)

    Materials: K hook, approx. 5.5oz. Caron (from the one pound skein, Espresso color)
    Abbreviations: ch=chain
    sc=single crochet
    sl=slip stitch
    hdc=half double crochet
    dc=double crochet
    ————————
    ch 25, hdc 46 rows. Fold the whole piece in half, so that the short ends match up. From the end of the 46th row, sl up the side of the piece, to close the back of what will be the hood.
    Once you’ve closed the back of the hood, skip 2 sl from the hook, and dc 6 in that 3rd sl from the hook. Skip 2 more stitches and anchor the scallop you just made by making 1 sl in the third stitch from the hook. Repeat this pattern of 6dc scallops, anchored with 1 sl between them until you get to the bottom of the hood.
    When you get to the bottom of the hood, cut off from your skein, and ch 45. Use 1 sl to attach the end of your 45 ch to a front corner of the hood. Hdc all the way across the bottom edge of the hood, ch 45 off the other tip of the hood.

    Sc 1 at the end of the ch, {ch 5, skip 3, sc. ch 5, skip 3} repeat {} until you’ve gone all the way down the chain, across the back of the hood, and to the tip of the other chain. Sc 1 at the other end of the chain, ch 5, and sc 1 around the loops of 5 ch, all across. The scarf should make a mesh or a netting-like fabric. To turn your rows, anchor in the 5 ch loop at the very end of the row, then simply ch 5, and turn the piece, making an sc in the loop you just made. The scarf will be 10 rows of this “netting”. When you’ve anchored the last sc in the last loop of the 10th row, simply sl1 in the 2 ch after the sc, then cut off from your skein, and weave in all the tails.
