Once upon a time a few decades ago, my mom knit me a scoodie. What is a scoodie? Its a scarf plus...
So of course, as the cold weather begins again, I start thinking about my scoodie and keeping my own kids warm. The truth is on Monday, I actually went to PDF Pattern Sales and Promotions on Facebook asking for the scoodie patterns that were available. But then I remembered a blog post I read MANY years ago about making a scoodie. At the time that I read it, it was WAY above my skill level. But now that I've read about a dozen blog posts on how to draft your own scoodie, I'm certain you already have everything you need to make a scoodie.
To make your own Scoodie, you will need a hood pattern and the fingertip to fingertip measurement of the person you will make it for. I am using the Max and Meena All Ears Hoodie. Firstly, because I have it already printed in the size I need. Secondly, because the pattern includes ear, fin and spike shapes to make these really fun for kids. Please note, the pattern comes through size 16/18, which I think would fit an adult just fine too.
Next, I sandwiched the neckline of the hood between the scarves and sewed all the way around, leaving a hole to turn it all right side out.
Flip it right side out. Then fold up the 2 ends by 6" to make the pockets and stitch down the 2 long lengths of the scarf to secure the pockets AND close up the turning hole.
That's it. you're done.
