Knit a scarf with a hood and pockets.
This is the cosiest scarf I've ever had. The main part is knitted in rib stitch, which eats up wool like nothing else, but that does make it super cosy. If you want to go easy on wool, just knit it in a straight stockinette stitch.

The hood is great for keeping warm and keeping your hair dry if it starts raining while out and you don't have an umbrella. The pockets are like mittens and keep your hands warm but can also hold your phone / bus pass etc.

<b>Yarn</b>
500g Rowan Cocoon in Lavender Ice. 80% Merino Wool, 20% Kid Mohair.

<b>Gauge</b>
15 sts and 15 rows= 8cm x 6cm in Stockinette Stitch.

The hood staff that these people are telling me about is going to be amazing for all of us and it can allow us to have something new on british assignment writers. It's what most of us are working on right now.

This is such a cool pattern! Just one question. What's the width of the scarf section? My wool is a bit different, so trying to adjust.
