This any-gauge hoodie scarflet combo, with button closure that holds it on when the hood is down, can be made with any yarn/needle combo! Just plug your gauge into the formulas and you're good to go. Make yourself a styling Skoodlet in different yarns for different looks, all with the same pattern! This is a great pattern for handspun or hand-dyed yarn, and will show off self-striping colors well. The Skoodlet is a fantastic winter accessory with a coat, acting as both a scarf and a hat when needed, tucking into the coat to keep out the wind. If you like the convenience of wearing a hoodie under your coat in case of rain or wind, but you'd rather be warmer with a hoodless wool sweater, here's your answer! By adding the Skoodlet to your wintery ensemble, you can have the convenience of wearing a hoodie under your coat, with the warmth of a sweater, scarf, and hood! If you make the hood a bit extra big (notes are in the pattern), it will easily fit over a hat or earmuffs, for extra warmth when you need it! And for days that aren't so cold, but are rainy, you can skip the coat, wear it as a scarflet, and have the hood there whenever you need to pull it up!
