So here's a great idea to brighten those gloomy waits at the train station while the November winds swirl around – a scarf with a hood attached! Pull the hood over your ears when you are out in the cold, then drop it neatly back onto your shoulders when you get to somewhere marginally warmer.
This is Anna's Vera Hooded Scarf – a quick and easy pattern that will have you wrapped up in no time at all. The scarf was inspired by a most fortunate swap shop find some years ago and has been keeping both Anna and myself warm ever since
This is an old and well‐loved stitch pattern but it works especially well for the Vera Hooded Scarf because it gives such a pleasing weight and texture. The scarf just nestles around the neck and keeps out every last puff of breeze.
Next time, I will be continuing this series of ideas for autumn knitting and will be looking at a boy's gilet jacket worked in a super diamond‐patterned stitch.
Until then – Happy Autumn Knitting!
