Irish Hooded Scarf



It's been a while since I've seen free knitting scarves patterns as intricate and beautiful as this one. Don't you love all the details of this Irish Hooded Scarf? And yes, you read that right - it has a hood and pockets, too. Complete with various cables and braids, this scarf is best suited to an intermediate level knitter.

I have actually made this pattern. While it is absolutely gorgeous (and my giftee loved it), I would definitely revise this from "Intermediate" to "Advanced" based on personal experience.

I would like to click on a photo of an article and get to the pattern without getting into my "saved pattern" box. As usual this web site does not seem to be set up that way.

Hi cshelton055 2880557, We only have the ability to post one picture per project on AllFreeKnitting. If you would like to view more images, you can find them by clicking on the link that says "click here for knitting pattern." A new window will open up, taking you to the original designer's website where you will find additional pictures, including pictures of people wearing this gorgeous scarf! --Editor of AllFreeKnitting

Please post pics of this while someone is wearing it, I can't for the life of me figure out what those things that look like short sleeves are nor how pockets would be necessary or helpful.

@ charleen7862 1073321, Thanks for your tips and tricks! --Editor of AllFreeKnitting @Crafter 1977936, After following the link that says "click here for knitting pattern," a new window will open that takes you directly to the original designer's page. From here, you can try copying and pasting the pattern into a Word document to help printing the pattern, adjusting the font size as needed. --Editor of AllFreeKnitting

I too have had problems with getting numerous unwanted pages when printing out patterns. I solved this problem by bringing up the pattern and then clicking on the "File" label in the upper left corner of the screen. This brings up a box with various options, I scroll down and click on the "Print Preview" option. This enables me to view each page by clicking on the forward arrow at the bottom. I can then choose exactly what pages I want to print. Also, I start by printing one page to make sure that the entire text is on that page. Good idea with this pattern because when printing at 100% the text is too large and a lot of the right side of the page was missing. Had to use the box in the upper middle of the screen and reduce text size to 60%. Got the entire pattern printed on 6 pages. Hope this info helps.
