I recently saw hooded scarves popping up everywhere and I decided I needed one. I couldn't afford to spend large amounts of money, though, so I came up with this.
This hooded scarf should take you about an hour to make. It's super easy and I'm totally proud of it! :D
Step 1: What you'll need:
- 2 yards of flannel fabric - I chose a really obnoxiously cute pattern, I would recommend you do the same.
- a yardstick or large measuring tool - quilters tools will come in really handy here!
- water/air soluble pen for marking fabric
- needle and thread or sewing machine
- a hot iron
- a hoodie for reference/pattern making
Step 2: How to make the pattern!
Take your favorite hoodie and turn it inside out and make the hood as flat as possible along the middle fold. Place the opening of the hood straight along the fold a couple of inches away from the edge.
You'll want to trace a half inch away from the hood all the way around it, until you hit shoulder area.
Now, you'll want to trace a couple inches down from the bottom hood seam, and begin taking your line horizontally back to the fold. Make sure to keep this straight!
Based on how thick you want the scarf to be, you'll draw the next vertical line. I drew my line eight inches away from the fold because I wanted a nice thick scarf. I made my scarf 36 inches long so that it had plenty of wrapping length. :D
The pictures explain this so much better.
