Doll hooded scarf free pattern

In the interest of personal safety I have been explaining to my kids that the wearing of flimsy gloves below 10 C will result in frostbite and death. My son took this mostly to heart and won’t take his bonhomme bleu to school unless he’s wearing a scarf so he won’t freeze to death. He’s been using one of his own scarves so I decided to knit something bonhomme sized.

Naturally there were no patterns on the internet so I made one up. You can use it as long as you follow my copyright rules in the sidebar.

The doll, which I knit some time ago from a Jean Greenhowe pattern, is about 12 in tall. For the hooded scarf, which is a hat attached to a scarf, I used 4 mm needles.

Cast on 60 sts
Row 1: (K3, P3) rep to end
Row 2: K
These 2 rows form the pattern for the scarf portion.
Row 3: (K3, P3) for 21 sts. Cast off next 4 sts K wise. K1, resume (K3, P3) pattern
Row 4: K33, inc K wise in next 2 sts, yo, inc K wise in next st, K to end
This keyhole is to thread the other tail of the scarf through.
Rows 5-7: pattern
Row 8: Cast off 25 sts K wise, K to end
Row 9: Cast off 25 sts K wise, inc K wise in next 8 sts, K 1

Begin hood
Switch to garter stitch.
Sl first st of every row, inc K wise in next st, K to last 2 sts, inc K wise in 2nd to last sts, K last st. Do this for every row until you have 48 sts (or less if your doll is smaller).
Garter st for an inch then switch to st st until you reach the top of the doll’s head.

Decrease top of hood
Sl 1, K2. *K7, K2 tog* rep ** to end
Sl 1 P wise, P rest of row
Sl 1, K2. *K6, K2 tog* rep ** to end
Sl 1 P wise, P rest of row
Sl 1, K 2. *K5, K2 tog* rep ** to end
St st 3 rows.
Cast of K wise
Fold hood in half and sew together with WRONG sides facing (it just looks prettier)
