Yes that's me being crazy out in the snow, actually I am on my way to the car and my goofy husband decided to take a photo of me. But that's not what this post is about, aren't you glad? I am wearing the hooded scarf that I made several months ago, and I really love it.
Basically it is just a long wide scarf that is folded in half, then from the point of the fold, I sewed a seam down about 11" which forms the hood. The rest of the length is then wrapped around your neck and it really keeps the cold air from blowing in on you. Nothing great but gosh is it nice. I made this one all in different shades of blue worsted weight yarn and I stitched it using a hdc, which is fast but it is a tight enough stitch to keep out the wind.
It also is one of those projects that doesn't take a lot of thinking, it is the same row after row, which makes it easy as a drag along project or something that you can just pick up and do a little bit now and then. Here is the link to the pattern.
This also is cute for the little ones, we have several little girls that live near us and I made a bunch of caps and scarves for Christmas for them. They have already asked if they could get them for Christmas this year, so I have decided they will get these Hooded Scarfs so they can keep up with them better. I think I've created monsters.
