Miss Laverty's Motoring Hood

pdf logo PDF Pattern
  • This quintessential vintage pixie hood is knitted flat in two separate pieces; the hood knitted in one piece with shaping added at the centre back for a more comfortable fit, and also the separate scarf. Both are knitted in 1x1 rib stitch. Once knitted, the centre back seam of the hood is sewn up and then the front of the hood is folded back providing an attractive frame to the face. The scarf is then sewn in place over the bottom edge of the hood. The scarf can easily be made longer to suit personal taste but do note more yarn will be required to do this. Knit the hood first, after which knit the scarf until all your yarn has been used - leaving a small amount for sewing up of course. The completed motoring hood does not need to be blocked, however it would still benefit from being washed before the hood is worn.

    The pattern contains full written instructions as well as clear schematic diagrams.
