I'm looking for a pattern that I don't even know if it exists. Years ago my mother had a (store-bought) lovely scarf that was designed to also cover your head. The center of the scarf fit on your head much like a bonnet fits, only not bonnet-like. And instead of being a circular piece like a cowl, it had two long arms that functioned exactly like a scarf. It was great in the winter! Now I'm living up here in the north and since I get terrible earaches in the cold wind, I want one. Of course, I haven't seen one a store since my childhood, and I can't seem to find a pattern. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Does anyone know of a pattern? Even a pattern for a headpiece that I could modify to add scarf ends would be okay as long as the head part fit like I need it to.
I made this one in Malabrigo a couple of years ago and I LOVE it when I'm out in the snow. It keeps my neck warm AND covers my head. If I get hot, I can just put the hood part down without having to find a place to put a hat.
Doesn't mess the hair, either.
