I love all the hoods you made. They look so special and comfy. Thank you so much for your tutorial and pictures. I would have been totally lost just by reading the original link. Now I get it.

It's windy here in the winter. This would be perfect for talking a walk around the neighborhood.Time to make one! :-)

thanks so much for adding a tute!  I've got just one question.  Can you give the width measurement from the front opening to the back seam?  Thanks!

Can you give the width measurement from the front opening to the back seam? 

From opening to little tip: aprox 15"
From opening to back seam: aprox 12.6"

Amazing thanks!  I've got to make this now!  If I have enough wool at home I'll be thrilled to death.  If I have to make a trip to the fabric store, that wouldn't be the worst thing that ever happened either.

I am so excited! I have to make some. I scored some plumb colored wool fabric at the thrift store for .45 cents a yard and was planning a cape. I think now I will make the hood seperate because this looks so awsome!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.

Pseudo_pix, thank you for the tutorial and the additional historical information. It never fails to amaze me what medieval people could do with simple cuts--or what modern people like you can do with them! I like the colors in these hoods too.


I want capes to come into fashion so badly.

I think the answer is in your sig: be the change you want to see!  Cheesy  Someone has to be first to start any fashion, and I think those of us who live in warm climates are the best people to bring back capes, cloaks, ruanas, and shawls because we never need the additional warmth that sleeves can give to coats and heavy jackets. The downside, of course, is fewer months in the year in which to wear those lovely items, but life is never perfect.
