This November we are participating in Ricochet and Away’s Ring Your Neck Scarf Challenge. The guidelines were pretty straightforward, make a scarf, crocheted or knitting must be kept to 20% or less of the final product, get creative and try something new! We created a hooded scarf for Miss M, here is how.
My little model was so not in the mood for her photo shoot. Something about these pictures seemed old time-y to me. So I helped them along a little.
You’re going to cut 2 rectangles, these will be your scarf. Our rectangles measure 3″x24″. Make sure your rectangles stretch runs width wise. If you want to be able to wrap your scarf around more make your scarf longer.
Now you need your hood. You’ll again be cutting 2 pieces, with the stretch running front to back NOT top to bottom.
Sew with right sides together. Simply stitch your scarf ends into the seam in that portion under the chin. Then sew your hood right sides together from the back of the neck to the forehead. Flip it right side out!
Fleece won’t fray or unravel so there is no hemming or extra finishing needed.
I like this tied in a bow, but the scarf can be simply wrapped, tied in a knot or styled however you would like.
Any interest in a tutorial breaking down adding a crocheted edge to your fleece hooded scarf?
