I'm going to my first SCA event this weekend and am trying to find a something easy to make to cover my really short hair that matches my outfit. I was hoping you guys would have some suggestions? I don't have a lot of time left, but if it's simple I think I can whip it together. For garb I'm wearing this, more or less:

Lots of links here to various options. I always had shorter hair & wore a crocheted snood or 2 to hide it under a simple, wide brim straw hat. Anyway, there's a couple options here that would work.

You could probably make some real quick with a loose knit/crocheted sweater of some sort. Large circle, sew a store bought headband or some elastic to make a snood....hmmm....no w I'm wishing I hadn't gotten rid of that sweater so I could give this a try for myself.


Anyway, good luck!

A muffin cap is super easy: cut a strip on the bias that's an inch longer than the circumference of your head, and an oval with a circumference of 2.5 to 3x your head circumference. The larger the difference, the fuller your cap will be. 
Stitch the band into a circle and try it on, make sure there it's not super tight. Pin the oval to the band at for equal intervals. Take the slack and start making wide, close pleats. Once you've got it all pinned together, run it through your machine band-side up so the pleats stay neat. Then stitch the bottom of the band to the inside of the cap - I usually do this by hand.
