A quick and easy hooded scarf

Updated on February 11, 2009

This is a beautiful and easy scarf to make in just a few hours. Keep your head and neck toasty warm with this quick-to-make and quick-to-don garment.  

There are tons of colors and patterns of fleece to choose from - pick one to match your favorite coat, or to complement your personality. I tend to not wear heavy coats and most of my sweaters and jackets are either bright colors or blacks, so mine was chosen purely because I adore this pattern. You'll need about a yard and a half of fleece to make this project. 

Sizing and cutting your fleece

My scarf is approximately 54 inches long, but you'll want to make yours to your own length specifications. Buy your fleece according to the length of your scarf: I bought a yard and a half to get that long a piece. You'll be making one major cut and one major seam.

Measure your head from top of the forehead to back of the head and add about 2 inches to get an approximate width for your scarf. Mine is about 10 inches, so I cut a 20 inch piece of fleece. My working piece was 20 inches wide by 54 inches long.

Sewing & making the fringe

Take one short (20 inch) end and measure up about 8 inches, and cut up at 1 inch intervals to make the fringe. Make sure you end up with an even number of fringes! Lay a ruler across it to help you get the length of each cut correct. Turn and do the other end. Lay the lengthwise edges together, wrong side out. Pin together from right above the fringe on each end, and then seam. Be careful not to sew down past the top of the fringe cuts! Turn the scarf right side out and tie the fringes together (see my no-sew fleece blanket hub to help with that!). Your scarf is almost done!

Finishing the scarf

The last step is to create the hood. For this you'll need to do a small bit of hand-sewing, so select a needle and choose thread that will work well with your scarf.

Fold your scarf in half so that the fringes are together. Measure your head from the crown to the base of your neck and add about half an inch. I choose to make my hood nine inches. Pin that length down from the fold and sew together.

I sewed very carefully in the existing seam so I wouldn't have to worry about getting it wrong side out accidentally. It should just take a few minutes and your scarf is done!

      Прибивая бигуди (рейки) используют гвозди длиной от 7 до 100 мм. Если пробить тонзуру практически невозможно, то необходимо просверлить отверстия и вставить в них пробки, а далее вбивать гвозди на расстоянии 50 см. При креплении локона не забудьте оставить зазор между листами, 0.4-0.5 см, он необходим для последующей отделки швов.
