I'm looking for a pattern for one of those scarves that widens out so you can put it up on your head. I imagine I could figure it out, but I'm sure someone has already figured it out...better than I can.
Thanks!
Josie

I am always amazed by the speedy responses I get from this group. Thanks so much!

I didn't know to call it a hooded scarf, so didn't find the previous discussion. I was thinking more of a scarf that is simply wider in the middle. Now that I have looked at the links, I will probably make a magic scarf or the one below. It is for my elderly mother and both would work for her.

I am still open to any other suggestions of course. Thanks again!

Here's one of the threads about the Magic Scarf, you can probably find more if you search a bit: http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=8097&SearchTerms=,magic,scarf

I think Patons or Bernat has a free pattern on their site for a hooded scarf.

Did you make this yet -- Does anyone think this can be done on a circular -- and if you were to knit 3 purl 3 on circular would it be ribby?? AND do you measure circular needles from point to point or from where the connection begins??

Don't you just love new knitters questions? And sorry if this isn't clear -- both DH and I are sick with the flu and I also don't have my reading glasses so the world is extra fuzzy.

Hi, Rho. Knit 3 Purl 3 would be ribby. : ) Just make sure you knit the knits and purl the purls as you go around.

Circulars are measured point to point. And you can fit a LOT more inches of knitting on them than they measure, but not fewer inches.

Get well soon! : ) Lisa

Hi Lisa -- thanks - I started it before you replied and as I said in another thread it will be a strange looking thing. I began by knitting every row for a few inches then I decided to k2, p2 for a few inches then I went back to knitting every row now I am knitting a row then purling a row. AND I have changed the size of the needles a few times just to see what would happen. But it will be warm and it will work to bring in wood and help DH split wood for the stove :D

Next one will be with a nicer yarn and I will stick to one pattern probably - this one is really scratchy (hoping it washes up softer)
