September Monthly Challenge

Hoodie Scarf

Fall and winter will eventually make their way to sunny Sacramento. This month's Camellia City Stockinette Monthly Challenge is sure to get you ready for the fall and winter seasons!

Member Michele Carotti is challenging all Stockinettes to make the Hoodie Scarf pattern by Diana Gates. According to the pattern the skill level is beginner so we hope to see lots of Hoodie Scarves at our October Meeting's Show and Tell.

Michele says she got her inspiration for this challenge pattern last year. She wanted to do a hoodie scarf and began a search on Ravelry. When she found the Hoodie Scarf pattern that she really liked she knew it would be perfect for a Guild Monthly Challenge. She plans on making quite a few more this year for Christmas gifts.

Michele also mentioned that Sheila Igoe even made matching mittens to match her Hoodie Scarf. Great idea girls!

(You can find the Hoodie Scarf as a free pattern on Ravelry

or just click on the Hoodie Scarf link in this post and you will be directed to the pattern.)

  1. Lisette, great blog! And I do LOVE my hoodie scarf! Did Michele mention who owns the matching mittens? I felted them a little too long, they got a little too small, so... they belong to Michele now. I plan to buy more yarn (Berroco Ultra Alpaca) during the "shop hop" to make me a slightly larger pair. - FYI: I posted a couple of pattern modifications (I made) on the Stockinettes Yahoo group. - See you soon :-)
