Perhaps you don't like wearing a close-fitting hat but if you live in a cold winter climate, it is vital to have some kind of head covering. Here is a solution-- a scarf with an attached hood.
Wear one of these combos as a scarf and the hood will be ready to be called into action when the temperature starts to dip.
The pattern for the scarf and hood duo is written in FOUR yarn weights, from Sport to Chunky. Styles for this combo are a choice of long or short scarf, in vertical or horizontal stripes, and with the option to knit the hood in two colors.
Wonderfully easy to knit, there is great variety for the knitter without sizing worries - a great pattern for gift-giving.
The knitting pattern, written in both US and metric measurements, includes a schematic drawing.
