I have a confession: I love to make hats but I hate to wear them. Yup! I will give hats away before I wear them. I don’t know why - but I have always been more of a hoodie gal. SO I have started to add hoods wherever I can. To scarves, to ponchos. You name it and I will stick a hood on it! Here is a fun twist on the classic scarf - yup - I added a hood.
