Firestorm Fox Scoodie – Crochet Pattern

Firestorm Fox Scoodie
I was walking around the local craft fair when I came across a knitted scarf in the most beautiful fall color I have ever seen. I quickly went over to the booth to get a closer inspection. After looking at it for a few minutes, I recognized the yarn texture to be that of Lionbrand’s Homespun. My sister, from JustCraftingAround.com, was with me and agreed that it was likely the Lionbrand Homespun brand yarn. I knew at once I needed to purchase this yarn and make something beautiful with it. It couldn’t just be something simple like a scarf, either. No this yarn deserved something special. Something I could wear, though, to show off its beautiful colors. I decided that a scoodie, a hooded scarf, would be perfect. After telling my husband to make a direct route to Michaels for the yarn after leaving the festival, I began to brood over it some more and came up with something even more elaborate and intricate, which I decided to share.

Materials:
– 2½ skeins of bulky weight yarn in color A. (I used Lionbrand Homespun in Wild Fire)
– Small amount of bulky weight yarn in color B. (I used Lionbrand Homespun in Deco)
– Small amount of bulky weight yarn in color C. (I used Lionbrand Homespun in Black)
– Size K (6.5mm) Crochet Hook

Abbreviations:
ch = Chain
sp(s) = space(s)
st(s) = stitch(es)
sl st = Slip Stitch
sk = Skip

sc = Single Crochet
sc dec = Single Crochet Decrease
hdc = Half Double Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
fpdc = Front Post Double Crochet

Special Stitches:
DSC_8612_ps_LDC_YouTubeLogoLdc – Long Double Crochet Linen Stitch: Work a double crochet (dc) in the st indicated one row below the previous row worked. This stitch will be worked around the previous row worked. (Also see Extended Moss Stitch)
