Why not just take an old Blanket
Cut the corners so it is oblong circle
Fold the Long way, mark the center of this fold
Slice to midline up the middle of the Long fold to the center mark
make a short cut at the top of the slice (like a T)

to make the hood, simply make a rectangle, and fold to a Square and sew the appropriate part to the T with the corners folded up

then you can fold one of the front flaps across the sholder
looks good, and is fairly authentic
and cheap to make

Make this world a Better, and more beautiful place, that you have been in it
