I can imagine I'll just call the end product the THING.

I think I'm going to attempt make a hooded scarf, but in the circular fashion such as:
http://lookbook.nu/look/34115-Dream-boots
(though that scarf may not be actually circular, maybe its just the way she's wearing it, but you get the point.)

So my plan is:

Knit a particularly long scarf.
Knit a hood from some sweater pattern.
Some how bind the ends of the scarf together and the hood on.

I think I want it to be a large roomy hood..
So my only question is,
What would be the best way to put the ends together?
I am mostly a beginner, and I have instructions for sewing seams like the "back stitch" and "mattress stitch" which I could figure out, but which of these, or what else would secure it most seamlessley?
(seamlessley -> a word?  Huh)

Yes, that's a word, but it's spelled seamlessly...

You could look up mobius, I think that's what the scarf is. You could knit a long scarf and pick up stitches in the middle of the long edge for a hood.

I second the moebius scarf idea - it can be a cowl, which is like a hood - and there is a lesson on doing it on the channel on TV (DIY?) that has a knitting program (I think it was). I made my mom one a few days ago and she loves it! Then you don't have the bother of attaching a hood ...

I thought it was a cowl myself, but looking at it again, I think it's wrapped twice around her...so it's really a very wide, very big tube, whether with the moebius twist or not.  But if you make it wide enough, it'd act as a hood without having to add a hood, like a cowl or a smoke ring.  It's cute!
