Recently I made myself a Scoodie (Non Ravelry Link), which is a hat with a scarf attached, for the morning walks to the bus stop. The mornings are really cold and with the snow & winds, they can be brutal. I wanted something that was nice & chunky and that would keep me warm. So far, my new scoodie has been doing the trick. I started it on November 28th & finished it on December 6th. I used a 6.5 mm (K) hook with Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick yarn. I used 4 skeins.
I really like the way it turned out. I altered it a bit, by adding a crochet border on the hat part in the front. I liked the look and needed to extend the length a bit to cover more of my face for the brutal cold Montreal winter mornings. I also altered where the hood was made, instead of it being centered, I put it to one of the sides, for the way I like to wrap scarves around myself. This might sound weird to you, but this makes total sense to me.
I’m also debating adding on pockets to the end of the scarf, for my hands. The only thing I’m debating is which direction to put the pockets. Top loading or side loading… what do you think? I can add on pickets in either direction, so I just need to figure out what is most comfortable for me to place my hands.
