Perhaps you don't like wearing a close-fitting hat but if you live in a cold winter climate, it is vital to have some kind of head covering.
Here is a solution-- a scarf with an attached hood. Wear as a scarf with the hood ready to be called into action when the temperature starts to dip.
The pattern for the scarf and hood duo is written in FOUR yarn weights, from Sport to Chunky. Styles for this combo are a choice of long or short scarf, in vertical or horizontal stripes, and with the option to knit the hood in two colors.
There is a lot of choice for the knitter, it's easy to make, and there are no sizing worries. All the makings for a great gift.
