My aunt made me one out of polar fleece for christmas last year. They're such fantastic garments- too bad I can't even wear it in winter around here (ooh, aah, 58 degrees!)

A pretty similar design, but the ear flaps are really long.  You could definitely make this for under the $300 they charge for it!!

as I was reading your post before I clicked on the link to the pic I pictured it differently in my head. Almost like a cape with a hood. Still open in the front. I guess when you said "If I had a day like that, I woud want a big soft hood to hide under." Why not try to make one like that? It just sounds so cozy. A big soft thing to just wrap your whole self in, including your head... then just veg in front of the TV.

Thanks everyone for the kind words =)

Maxine, actually I made a second one with a bigger hood, and thicker scarf portion... it looks a lot better, I think.  My original idea was that it would be a cowl neck with a hood, that would fit under a crewneck of some sort.  A long cape with a hood would also be interesting... I think I would have to use a heavier fabric, though.  I'm out in California, so I used a light cotton/lycra-ish mix.  Thanks for the inspiration...  You've got me thinking and now I'm off to keep sewing!

I see... I know exactly what you mean about the weather... I live in the Phoenix, AZ area so we have very very mild winters. Here's something... how about a nice drapey fabric. Med weight. You've got something there gurl and it's really cool.  I want to see more. Also I think a scoodie is a great name. Perfect... and I am very excited to have been able to offer some inspiration.
