Unicorn Hooded Scarf with Pockets Crochet Pattern
Unicorn Hooded Scarf with Pockets Crochet Pattern | What little girl doesn’t want to dress as a unicorn? This cute Unicorn Hooded Scarf with Pockets Crochet Pattern is adorned with cute little ears and horn along with a colorful mane.
Keep ears and fingers nice and warm and be magical! All at the same time. Since unicorns are all the rage I thought it would be fun to create something not only practical but fun to wear too!
There are groups dedicated to them! Movies with them! Lots of food surrounded by what we know as the Magical Unicorn! So I thought it to be even more fitting that our little girls should be adorned with a little magic of their own.
This pattern is made to fit girls ages 4 – 8. But it can be easily modified to fit smaller or larger. Just adjust the starting chain and add or take out rows so it fits your little unicorn. Or yourself! Adults can be unicorns, too, ya know. Scroll down for another FREE pattern!

6 mm hook (J), 5 mm hook (H)
Worsted weight yarn in whichever colors you choose. I used what I had in my stash: Red Heart Super Saver in ivory (1 skein), perfect pink, light sage, medium purple, gold, and petal pink
Difficulty: Easy to moderate
Stitches to know:
Magic circle (or ch 3 to make a loop)
ch – chain
hdc – half double crochet
sc – single crochet
tr – treble crochet
increase – crochet twice in one stitch
Finished Measurements (approximate):
Hood: 9.5 inches deep and 12 inches tall
Scarf: 5 inches wide and 50 inches long (after pockets are folded)
Pockets: 5 inches wide and 6 inches long
12 hdc = 4″
8 rows = 4″
Start with the hood:
Using ivory and a 6 mm (J) hook and ch 42
Row 1: hdc in 3rd chain from hook and across, ch 2, turn (40)
Row 2: hdc in same stitch, increase, *hdc, increase* repeat from * to * across, ch 2, turn (60)
Row 3 – 18: hdc across, ch 2, turn (60)
Join perfect pink
Row 19: sc in same stitch, treble crochet in next, *sc, tr* repeat from * to * across (this should create a texture on the right side of the hood) (59)
Row 20: ch 2, turn, hdc across (59)
Fasten off, weave in ends
Fold in half and inside out so it looks like a hood (the textured stripe should be in the inside), sew the back together by using sc. Fasten off, weave in ends. Turn rightside out so the seam is on the inside and the pink stripe is on the outside.
Using gold yarn and a 5 mm hook (H).
Magic circle (or chain 3 and make a loop)
Round 1: sc 6 into loop, join (6)
Round 2-3: ch 1, sc around, join (6)
Round 4: ch 1, *sc, increase*, repeat from * to * around, join (9)
Round 5-9: ch 1, sc around, join (9)
Leave a long tail for sewing, weave in other end
Ears (make 2)
Using a 5 mm hook (H), petal pink, and ivory yarn
Start with petal pink
Row 1: ch 2, 3 sc in 2nd chain from the hook, ch 1 (3)
Row 2: turn, 2 sc in each stitch (6)
Row 3: ch 1, turn, 2 sc, 2 sc, 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc, 2 sc, 2sc (12)
Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing, weave in other ends
Add some fiberfill to the horn and attach it to the top of the hood. I sewed it in the middle of the 9th row from the front. Sew on the ears over the 8th and 9th rows. Add fringe around the horn and ears for hair. I used three 10 inch strands for each. Then trim it up to your liking.
Staring with ivory and a 6mm hook (J)
Row 1: hdc in 2nd chain from the hook and across (15)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in the same stitch, tr in next, *sc, tr* repeat from * to * across (this will create a decorative texture on the other side) (15)

Fasten off, weave in ends.
Fold textured ends up to make pockets. Turn them inside out, sc across the sides to close up.
Turn right side out. Line up your scarf and hood, wrong side up for both. Sew them together with sc.
Turn it right side out (the seam should be in the inside) and voilà! You are a unicorn!

MORE UNICORN CREATIONS: UNICORN CROCHET PATTERN and UNICORN HOODED TOWEL PATTERN
Almost done with my first unicorn. It has been a fun project.
Oh how fun Kim!
Hello. I am wanting to make this for an adult. Is there a pattern for that?
Hello 🙂 Not yet! But you can easily change the starting chain for the hood (add about 10 stitches) and add some rows to the scarf (about 10 – 15 rows) for an adult. You could also use chunky yarn instead of worsted weight. I hope this helps!
So I’m at row 2 for the increases. And making the pattern like it reads. My count is more than 59 stitches. If you put 2 hdc in each stitch across from the previous row of 40 I have 81. Please explain what it means. Do I hdc in one and 2 hdc in the next and repeat? Thanks.
Hi Becky, you hdc in one and then 2 in the next. Then repeat this across. Hope this helps!
This helps tremendously because I interpreted the directions differently and had way over 59 stitches. I am modifying the pattern a bit as I am using a size P hook and Bernat Blanket Yarn because it is so soft.
Does the Ch2 at the beginning of the row count as a stitch? It says to hdc in same stitch, which I did, then increased in the next and continued the 1hdc then 2 hdc in next and ended with 60 stitches, not counting the ch2. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. 🙁
You are correct. The pattern is fixed 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
I’m new here and I know my granddaughter will love this! Question for row 2 – hdc in the same stitch. Can you tell me what the ‘same stitch’ means??
That the ch 2 doesn’t count as a stitch an to start in the very first stitch. The same as the turning chain 🙂
How much total of the ivory yarn did you need?
One skein 🙂
Ok thank u n do u have any cat n dog pattern for this same scraf n hat design
How much in grams is one skein please
One skein of Red Heart Super Saver is 198 grams
This is just cute as can be, thank you
Thanks Robbie….and you’re Welcome!
This unicorn pattern is lovely. Thank you for sharing it.
You’re Welcome Karen. Thanks for stopping by!
I have finished my unicorn scarf except for the fringe. How is it done?
Hi Jane! Here’s a good photo tutorial 🙂 http://www.dummies.com/crafts/crocheting/how-to-add-fringe-to-crochet/
How long should the scarf be before you fold up the pockets?
About 65 inches 🙂
How would I make it smaller for a 2-3T child?
You could shorten the starting chain by about 10 stitches. Then make the scarf shorter (by 8-10 rows, maybe?) Hope this helps!
Thank you so much! What are the finished measurements in inches for the hood?
THANKS FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL PATTERN, I AM ON MY SECOND ONE. VERY EASY TO FOLLOW
Wow! That’s so cool Kathie!
What are the measurements for the hood in inches?
Hi! It’s approximately 9.5 inches deep and 12 inches tall
Finished making unicorn hoodie scarf for my little girl she loved it and showed all her friends now they all want me to crotchet them one the messy bun hat is my next project live your patterns thanks
That’s awesome Jenny!
Hi, how wide is the scarf part please? I saw it is about 65 inches long, but could not see the width. Could I also ask for the size that the pockets should be?
Hi! The scarf is approximately 5 inches wide. The pockets are 6 inches long and 5 inches wide.
Thank you so much x
I have never made something like this before so I was completely lost!
Does the ch 2 at beginning of rows count as 1st He?
Hi from Cyprus!!! when i turned into the second round i do 1 hdc and 2 hdc till the end of the round but all are 60 stitches not 59 what i do wrong
Thank you for the pattern :-*
Hmmm, I’m not sure. But honestly, it doesn’t really matter. 60 stitches would work fine ?
Is the row gauge correct I can seem to get 6 Ross to equal 4 in.
Hi ? We probably have different tension. You might crochet tighter or looser than me. I tend to crochet pretty loose.
About middle tension
Hi!! Thank you so much for the pattern! I have made about 10 of the hooded scarves using your pattern with various different animal patterns including the unicorn! Everyone loves them! They are super easy to make and your pattern is very simple to follow. Thanks again 🙂
That’s Awesome Genna! You have been one busy lady!
I just made 3 of these for my nieces who are in love with unicorns. They will be a hit at Christmas I am sure! It was easy to follow and fun to make. I was able to make them in three different sizes by changing the gauge too. I loved it! Thanks for the pattern, pictures and pointers!
WooHoo Marna! Yes….I agree there are going to be some VERY happy girls this Christmas!
This unicorn hooded scarf is such a great pattern. I have two granddaughters who will think it is wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing it.
You’re Welcome Karen. I have two granddaughters too that are in love with anything unicorn.
Just made this scarf for my grand daughters and nieces they love it. Thank you for sharing this pattern.
That’s awesome Lisa!
Hi! I love your pattern. I may crochet tighter than you but I’m curious how long is the unicorn horn?
hi – really enjoyed making the unicorn – easy to read/follow. i am looking for something dinosaur. do you have anything?
Hi Ruth, No I’m sorry I don’t. But that’s a great idea! ♥
Love your patterns
Thank You Denise! ♥
Do you have this for sale, I love craft projects but crochet is not on my list:-) My niece is 7 and loves unicorns so I thought this would make a great Christmas gift!
Hi Christina, I’m sorry only the pattern is offered.
Is it warm enough? I was thinking of maybe using 2 strands of yarn? Will the pattern still work up the same you think?
It will be a bit larger with 2 strands. And you might want to use an 8.0 mm hook 🙂
I for the life of me can not figure out the pockets can you help me ?
Hi! Fold up the end and sew it closed on each side with a single crochet 🙂
Is it possible to adjust the pattern it to fit an adult and how?
Thanks in advance 😀
Hi! Yes, you can add about 8 inches to the length of the scarf. And then about 10 stitches to the chain of the hood and a few more rows.
Thank you loads 😀
Made this for a niece for Christmas and she LOVED it. My other niece loved it so much that she asked for one too, but she wants a zebra one 🙂 In the process of making that now. Thanks so much for the pattern <3
That’s awesome Lynette!
Not sure what I did but one pocket is facing out and the other one in. Help please
You can either turn both right side out and have a twist in the scarf. Or you will have to take out the sewing in one and turn it the right way 🙂
Ok What did I do wrong one of my pockets is. If I turn one the other way (right way) the texture will be on the inside of the pocket
Hi! The row count might be off by 1. 🙂
When you did the hair did you go all the way down the hood or just on top? And how do you keep the end of the strings from unraveling?
I did it about halfway down the hood. As long as they’re not pulled on the hair should stay. Mine is still in good condition after a couple years.
What color red heart yarn did you use for all?
I used ivory for the main portion and perfect pink, light sage, medium purple, gold, and petal pink for the details
I’m using this pattern to do my little pony hooded scarfs.
Hi Patricia, Perfect! Just leave off the horn and you’ve got a pony! Brilliant! ♥
I’m excited to make this for my granddaughter who is all about unicorns right now. The pattern seems easy enough but my question is this… Is the ivory the only bulky yarn used? Please help me with this small issue. Thank you for your help and for sharing the pattern.
Hi Michelle, Yes.
My gauge is way off. I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong but 6 rows is only coming up 2.5″.
That’s a typo on my part! I’m so sorry! It should be 8 rows 🙂
I completed one however mine is pretty small. I went up one hook size but that didnt help. Was wanting to make 2, one for a 10-12 sized girl and one for a 14-16 sized girl. Amy suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hi! You can make the scarf any length. You can go up an additional hook size, or as rows until it’s the size you want 🙂
Hey i love love this unicorn hat n scraf I all ready made my first n my daughters love them.. working on my oldest now… now she is 9 so how many chains should I do for her.. also do u have any direction for a cat n dog that is like this pattern… my little niece who is 4 wants a cat n my nephew who is 5 wants a dog…
Hi! The pattern should fit a 9 year old as it’s written 😊 this still fits my daughter & she’s 10 now
I don’t understand rows 106-116 on the scarf. Because it wouldn’t be like the other end of the scarf. Please help me understand..
Hi! All the even rows will be the different colors with the “texture” starting with row 104
Thank you! I really love this pattern.
I am making your unicorn hooded scarf for a friends daughter for Christmas. Her daughter is 9 years old. I’m not sure how much bigger to make the scarf. HELP!!!
Do you have a video tutorial on making this?
No, I don’t. Sorry!
