Babushka style scarf
What would you call a scarf that is wide enough to wear as a headcovering ie, it is wider in the middle and then narrow on the ends....and .....not looking for a pttern here, but looking for a place that has ready -made ones.

I have one of these in ivory:

I really like it. I'm thinking about making a couple. It's like a scarf that is folded over and seamed at one edge to make a hood. It's good to wrap around my face to try to avoid asthma attacks when it's really cold. Like today...brrrrr!

Thank you ladies so much! That is exactly what I am talking about......

There is a berrocco pattern here:

I LOVE THE INTERNET! WEEEE!!!

The friend who was looking for this, is looking for her mom. Good thing - she will be the recipient of the dreaded homespun scarf!
