It Be Winter is a thick and cozy hood designed to keep you warm even on the coldest days. Knit flat in garter stitch on size 11 (8 mm) needles with bulky weight yarn (140 yards) or doubled worsted weight yarn, it knits up fast. There are no seams. Cast on and work the front first. Then work a few short rows at the center and begin to join the back to the front. Finish with a little skirt at the back to cover the neck and tuck inside your coat. Add a button and loop under the chin or ties for a secure closing.
Measures 17” from top to bottom x 8” deep laid flat on the side.
You can change the size of the hood by choosing a lighter weight yarn and needles recommended by the yarn label.
I will be knitting more of these to wear next winter. :-) I'm hoping we don't need heavy winter gear for much longer this year.
