I hate to admit this, but I have reworked this yarn in probably six different items and they never seemed just right. Then I came across this pattern on Pinterest and I just had to try it and I love it. The hood is slouchy so it almost works as a shawl which I love. It is the perfect outerwear for here in the Seattle area (you know we don't use umbrellas, just hoodies :) ), I don't usually need a coat (you can blame that on Menopause because I used to always be cold lol) so the hood and scarf are just the perfect protection from the chill and rain when needed. I'm so excited about it, I think I need to make more!
