Crochet Snow Bear Scoodie

Crochet Snow Bear Scoodie

Crochet Snow Bear Scoodie pattern by Dearest Debi.

Over a year ago someone had posted a picture of a crochet scoodie but there was no published pattern. Over the year I figured that a pattern would be available but nothing was published.

I originally intended on using Lion Brand Homespun yarn for my crochet scoodie but I didn’t have enough on hand so I used Bernat Boucle. They are both the same weight of yarn so you could use either of these yarns to make your own Crochet Scoodie.

Please share your Crochet Snow Bear Scoodie photos with me on my facebook WALL.

**Use stitch marker in beg st of each rnd!**


*Do not join rnds, use a stitch marker in 1st st of each rnd, crochet a little on the loose side so you can easily tighten the magic ring.*

Sew ears to hat, I added a stitch inside the ear a bit and back from the seam to keep the ears from flopping forward.

    This is adorable! I have some leftover skeins of Bernat Boucle that I had no idea what to do with. Thanks to you, Dearest Debi, I have a great project to use the boucle up! You’re a talented and generous soul for sharing this wonderful scoodie pattern.

    • says

      My original intention was to use up the scraps of boucle I had around the house but as I got working on it I kind of wanted it all the same colour and ended up having to buy 2 new balls. 😛

  2. says

    Hey Debi, Wanted to tell you that I am currently working this with Lion Brand Homespun, too. I had purchased four skeins for an afghan that never happened. While both Bernat Boucle and LB Homespun are bulky yarn, Homespun is thicker than the boucle and makes a really interesting texture for the hooded scarf. I liked working with the Bernat Boucle better but I’m using Meadow Homespun, which is one of the variegated colors, and it is becoming an amazing piece with the color shading. Thanks again for such a versatile pattern. At least two lucky gals are getting this scarf for Christmas this year!

  3. says

    Debi – I really liked this scoodie, but I have vision problems and just cannot read the font you have on your blog. I wonder if you would be willing to send me the pattern in a plainer text font that I can upsize and bold so I can see it? I sure would appreciate it. Thx.

    • says

      Hi Sande, I changed my font, hope it’s a little easier to read.

      I have to make pdf files of all my blogged patterns to offer a print option, once I make this pattern into a pdf I will send you a copy so you can use the zoom in and out feature.

  4. Sandie says

    Hi Debi! Love your pattern! I’ve already made a black one with bear ears, and am currently making my daughter’s friend a grey one with cat ears :) (I used Bernat Softee Chunky, I found it a little stiff, so any more that I make, I will definately use the Soft Boucle)

    • DearDebi says

      Thank you! My original intention was to use lion brand homespun, for this pattern it would require 4-5 balls. Only thing is you need to wait for a sale otherwise the homespun is pretty pricey, well at least it is here.

  5. Susan Chamberlin says

    Hi Deb, just love this pattern, how can I adapt it to use regular yarn??? Hook size etc???? I always make a proto type with regular yarn before I put out money for the nigher price stuff. Sure will be a great pattern tho!!

    • DearestDebi says

      You could try using phentex chunky or berant chunky, with the hook size mentioned they both will work up about the same. Also another person worked theirs up with caron one pound, you can check it out HERE. Just make sure to always check your gauge works out the same.

  6. Brenda C says

    I was wondering if you can adjust this pattern for a child? I would love to make this for my grandchildren. Thanks for your help and/or advice.

  7. cheryl says

    I’m making this and I’m wondering what the “leave 6 stitches unworked” and work around that for the front of the hat or what? I always worry I’m doing it wrong and don’t want to mess it up. Plz let me know

  8. MJ says

    I am fairly new to crocheting and wanted to know of you could tell me how to size the hoodie to fit your average 3 year old. I’ve managed to ‘child size’ the scarf portion.

    • DearestDebi says

      This is a one size only free pattern, it is as is. In order for it to be child size I would have to rework the entire pattern..

  9. MJ says


    Figure it out.

    Here’s what i did for toddler size:
    12 HDC for width of scarf for toddler. length of scarf should be as long as the child is tall. Fold up 4-5″ for pockets.

    For the hood, I modified hat start pattern a friend gave me.

    Magic ring, chain one, 9 HDC into circle. Join to first HDC, chain one.

    Round 2: 2 HDC into each around, join to first HDC. (18)
    Round 3: 2 HDC into first stitch, 1 HDC into next. Repeat around (27)
    Round 4: 2 HDC in first, 1 HDC In next two stitches, repeat around (36)
    Round 5: 2 HDC in first, 1 HDC in next three stitches, repeat around (45)
    Round 6: 2 HDC in first, 1 HDC in next four. Repeat around (54)
    Round 7: HDC around (54)
    Round 8: 2 HDC in first, 1 HDC in next 8. Repeat around. (60)
    Round 9-15: HDC around (60)

    • Cat says

      Hi I was looking at your modified pattern for toddlers at what point do we stop going all the way around and just work side to side?

  10. oceannia says

    I love the pattern. The only problem that I have is that I am allergic to Bernat yarns. What would you suggest as a substitute? I was thinking of Lion Brand Homespun yarn or my own handspan alpaca/sheep yarn.

    • DearestDebi says

      My original intention was to use lion brand homespun but I didn’t have enough, you could use it as it is also a #5 Bulky like the Bernat boucle. Just make sure to check your gauge. :)

  11. Ruth Sheldon says

    I’m so thrilled to find this! I found a fur one in Niagara falls that would have set me back almost $200!! I’m so glad I can make my own!

  12. samantha says

    I love this! I started making it with a different yarn but have to wait until I can get a softer brand. In the meantime, how tall do you stand? I’m 5’0″ so I was wondering if I should just make it a little shorter instead of making it 82 inches long make it 70 inches or so..? I am new to crocheting so any suggestions would be wonderful!

    • DearestDebi says

      I’m 5 inches taller then you. Just take off a couple of rows off the scarf to make it shorter. To check the length, wear the scarf on your shoulders down to your hands, you will want it to be longer on both sides so you can fold the scarf ends for pockets.

  13. Kimberly says

    Wow, I just discovered your site and I LOVE it. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent with all of us.

    I have one question, how do I print this pattern??

  14. Tammy says

    Thank you so much for posting this pattern! I wanted to let those who don’t have any bulky/chunky yarn on hand, I am using 2 strands of Caron Simply Soft along with a 6.5 (K) hook and it am getting the correct gauge, and it’s turning out great so far :)

  15. Gloria Frey says

    Made this for one of my granddaughters this winter but minus the ears…and she loved it, especially because I did it in her favorite colors of purple edged in black. Thanks for sharing your talents.

  16. Obaynne says

    I made a nice gray one thinking I was using the same weight of yarn, but its not the same at all so I’ve ended up with a monstrocity now I’m trying to figure out how to fix it but I think I’ll need to redo the hood entirely :(
    Love the pattern though, it was super easy to follow and has a beautiful result (other than my choice of yarn lol)

  17. Kimbles says

    Hey there Dearest Debi.
    I have a large head and long arms.
    With the scarf I am assuming I just add a few extra rows.
    I am a fan of aragarumi so I know the concept of the working of the hat. Do you think adding a couple of stitches into the original pattern would give me the forehead to back of head length I would need or adding rows would be better?
    Thanks for this pattern!

  18. Pepsi says

    I went through all of the steps so I could download and it kicked me out and showed I had to start over. I just shared everywhere and everything it said… Guess I just won’t be able to download the pattern.

          • says

            The pink arrow just brings you to the download page where you have the same options to download. You need to complete one of the 6 options, once one has been completed a pop up will open and you will begin downloading the pattern, you have to make sure you don’t have a pop up blocker on. Not sure why it would be closing. I haven’t had any other such complaints.

          • Pepsi jacobs says

            I did all of the options. Tweeted, shared on FB, google, etc. Don’t have a pop up blocker on.. I just won’t make it.

  19. Alison says

    Ok I need help, I think I am missing something. I am working the hood on row 14, I have 6 stitches before I get to the stitch marker, do I join and skip the 6 or do I turn and leave the 6 stitches undone? My only concern is I am going to have a big gap and I continue to row 27

  20. Martha says

    Have liked it, tweeted it and pinned it, checked pop-up blocker (off) and still can’t get the pattern. Please help

  21. says

    Hi DearestDebi, I done everything like Martha above me and i can’t seem to get anywhere either. I liked, pinned, google + and facebooked you and turned off my pop up blocker for your site and i just can’t get the pattern, Help please.

  22. chika says

    Very cute! Thank you for sharing. Hope to make it one day…another thing to add to my ever growing list of “things to make” lol! Cheers!

  23. DearestDebi says

    Take it easy and let those wrist heal, or use some sort of brace. I have to take my own advice as I just sprained my wrist the other night so it’s been slow crocheting since. Hope you get to work one up. :)
