I'm SO excited about this, you guys! I had designed a hooded scarf for my mom and it got published in a book!


Please excuse my doofy face.  Wink  All the patterns I could find for something similar had the hood made as a rectangle and sewn together on one end so you had this pointed head.  My way eliminates the elfin point and there is no sewing involved because I don't like doing that either.  Here are some more pictures:





There's broomstick lace trim on the top and bottom edges. Let me know what you guys think!
(btw, the other patterns in the book totally rock so check them out as well)

Congratulations!  That's so cool! 

And the scarf is beautiful.  I love broomstick lace, but haven't had the guts to try it yet...  So pretty!!!
