Bavarian Hat & Scoodie Set

Our Bavarian crochet in rows and in the round tutorials have been so popular that we decided it was high time we created a pattern that features those stitch patterns. So when our neighbor asked us to design a hooded scarf for her daughter, we knew just how we wanted it to look!
