I wanted some kind of head covering that would keep my noggin warm, but not muck up my hair. I don't really "do" my hair but I do get hat head and I'd like to avoid that. So I saw some hoodie/scarf combos at walmart but didn't really want to buy one when I thought I could make one. It would have been cheaper to buy one. I decided to buy a pattern but it turns out the pattern is like the free tutorials you can find online. So at least I supported a small business, right? The fabric is some minky-ish fleece and some plaid flannel from Joann's. It's been a long time since I've sewn with knits but it all came right back (mostly). The hoodie scarf is reversible and very cozy and warm. Here is my daughter modeling it.
I bought the pattern from jamiechristina.com but if you google "hoodie scarf tutorial" you'll probably find a pretty close match. And free.
