Comments:
Precious pattern but I am confused... I got the 49 stitches for row 1(yay)....then Row 2 - 21 DC but not understanding what to do next....
 
2 dc in each of the next 7 stitches.
 
So I am actually going around the entire first row?!
 
Maybe I should have not said all the way around...maybe like a "u".

Sorry for being a doofus :) but I love this little hood and have tried other hoods and just can't seem to get them right and your seemed so easy when I read it!! I am actually trying it with rainbow colors!!!
 
That's what you did on row one.
 
Now you got it, yes a "U" shape. Rainbow colors will be great. Would love to see it when it is completed.

you can send a photo to me at suzettaw98226@yahoo.com
 
What size would you cocider this to be , how old of a child I need for a 8 and 10 year old

 
Children vary so much in size I couldn't say. However I gave measurements of each size pattern.
 
The other sizes are listed in the sidebar.
 
Is there a tutorial on this? It would be great if there is so I can follow along. Thanks☺️
 
Sorry I don't do tutorials.
 
I'm seriously confused I did the fsc then all the way down to the 2 DC in the last stitch if row 1 I don't know what it means by 3 DC in end of row and along bottom idk I am seriously confused lol
 
The end of the row, how about if we call it the side of the fsc? Then you work along the unused loop of the fsc. Hope that helps.
 
My daughter requested a cowled hat for baby girl this winter do I adapted your great pattern here into this creation! Now I'm creating matching thumbless mittens... thanks for all you share!
 
I'm confused as well. I have dc across for the fsc, to where will the 2dc in the last st, end 3dc at the end of fsc go? There aren't enough stitches for that in the fsc row.
 
Those stitches go in the side of the indicated stitch.
 
Will I crochet continuing on around? I have an oval shape now.

 
Oone end will be straight and the other curved. Just follow the instructions, one row at a time. Try not to overthink it..
 
I am not able to see the sizing for different ages. Could you post it or send it to me. I need it for an 8 yr old and a big 3 yr old. Thank you for your help. Michele
 
Sorry, there is only one size.
 
My brother and I do a charity function around Christmas every year I'm wondering if you would be okay with me using this pattern I will NOT be making a profit off of the scarfs they are given to women and children from the shelter
 
I'm always happy for people to use my patterns for charitable purposes.
 
Very easy to follow thank you. I get bored easily, so I turned the scarf bit into a balaclaver. Really pleased with the result.
