This versatile scarf can be worn around the neck, or pulled up over the head like a hood! I designed it because my dress coat didn't have a hood. The scood is basically a large rectangle, gathered into two fan-shaped ends, which are attached to the body of the scood by ribbed slots. To fasten the scood, you pull the fan on one side through the slot on the other end of the scood. The body of the scood is knitted side-to-side in Garter Stitch, with a rolled edge at the front and back. The stitches are decreased, and then divided in half, and a ribbed rectangle is knitted on each half of the stitches to make the slot. Then the stitches are rejoined and the fan is knitted in a lacy stitch. The fans are edged in a crocheted shell stitch. The 6-page pattern includes a photo tutorial on the chain cast-on, along with some tips for using this cast-on.

I was taught the basics of knitting, crochet, embroidery, and sewing by my grandmother when I was young. I have found that I enjoy doing a variety of fiber related crafts, and have over the years learned to spin yarn, weave, tat, braid, felt and bead. But the greatest satisfaction for me comes from using my God-given creativity to create my own designs and techniques.
