so im getting a jump start on my winter wear and i found this hooded scarf on etsy, but let face it why spend 60$ on something you can make for less than 20$, no matter how gorgeous it is. im still kinda new to the wonderful world of crochet so without a pattern i get kinda lost. ive search the web and i cant seem to find anything.

can any one give me some helpful hints. how to begin. or even a pattern similar in look. please and thank you.

Oooo you mean a scoodie! I've always wanted to make one but never got around to it.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=272230.0 --> Someone left a "pattern" of sorts in this thread. It isn't a pattern, but doesn't look too hard to figure out.

To me, it just looks like a bunch of double crochet with chunky yarn, maybe 2 strands together.  Could just be DC, skip one, DC repeated.  I'm guessing there is a seam in the back of the hood part, and for the scarf part to get it to twist like that.

And just cuz I need to say it, I totally get what you're saying about $60 vs $20 because I browse the web for ideas all the time, but you've got to remember that people on etsy are just like us...  If it's a quality good, it's good to support fellow crafters from time to time.

oh. no. dont get me wrong. thats why i love etsy. i fully support fellow crafters. and i would have loved to have been able to go crazy in her shop but honestly i couldnt afford to, she has bikini tops listed in the 100s.
i live in germany in a small town so most all my supplies come from etsy.

and thank you for the tips on the pattern.

Oh wow, I used to have one of these in middle school! (store bought)

Hmm, should be fun to make my own, that actually fits well. The store bought one was really thin knit and the hood was really short/too small.

here's a pattern of one that's not so nice but I'm sure you could adapt it to make it nicer
