This 'scarf hoodie will slip over the toddlers head to keep the neck warm but should be safer than a long scarf.

Bev's Toddler Mitts for 1 to 2 years - crocheted

Materials: size G crochet hook and 1 oz 4 ply worsted yarn.

Chain 45 Ages 1-2 years old

Row 1: Sc into 2nd chain from hook, and into the next 6 chs to form cuff, sl st next 2 sts for wrist, sc in next 13 sts for hand, sl st next 2 sts for top, sc in next 13 sts for hand, sl st next 2 sts for wrist, sc in next 6 sts for cuff, ch 1 to turn all rows.
Row 2:
Working through back loops, sc into each sc and sl st in each sl st of previous row.
Repeat Row 2 for desired width of hand (usually 5 ridges)  
THUMB
Shape thumb:
Keeping in sequence work cuff, wrist and 3 sts of hand. Ch 7 for thumb, fold the mitten in half and join with a sc to opposite side of mitten (meaning- join in the 3rd stitch up from the wrist).

Now work back down toward cuff  - 3 sc in next 2 scs, sl st in next 2 sts (wrist), and sc in the next 6 sts for cuff. Ch 1 and turn
 
Next Row:
  Repeat pattern to thumb, at thumb - sc in next 3 scs, sl st next 1 st, (this forms top of thumb) sc in remaining 3 sts of ch, finish in pattern down toward wrist again.

Repeat last row 2 times to form the thumb, working in the scs and sl sts. End off leaving enough yarn to sew completely around mitten. Fold mitten in half & sew around. Turn right side out.
 
Make another mitten the same.

Extra (tighter) Cuff: Sc around the cuff for 3 rounds.  Sc in every other 'ridge' around the 1st time to make the wrist a bit tighter. (This will cut your number of sts in half)

COAT STRING
Join yarn to one cuff at seam stitches and then sc around entire cuff, make a ch about 2-2 1/2 feet long and join with sl st to other mitten at seam. Sc around that mitten too, and you now have a string to thread mittens through coat. For extra warmth, use double yarn and brush the inside of the mitten with a hair brush to make it 'fuzzy' and soft.
