To create pockets, count up the side 8 to 12 sts (adjusting for desired pocket depth and/or for the recipient arm length) and pin both pockets to ensure the pockets are the same size.
Join yarn and sl st up each side of both pockets including the sides of the faux fur yarn rows at the top of the pocket. Break yarn.
Fold the scarf in half (WS together) and lay it inside the hood (RS together). Align the outside edge of the scarf with the bottom edge of the hood. Pin the pieces together to keep the hood and scarf aligned. Join yarn and sl st around to seam the hood and scarf together. When finished, turn the hood RS out. Break yarn and weave in all ends.
