I have made several of these sets of hoods and mittens. The hood was tricky to finish and I ended up just constructing it my own way, ending up with the same result. Mittens are finicky and take a lot of cuttting. It is imperative that the mittens are cut out as perfectly as possible. On some of mine I left out the elastic.
This is very cute, but I don't love the way it is sewn together. It was turning out to be a really fun first time sewing project for my daughter...until we got to the part where you roll the hood up into the scarf. It is too tight and impossible to sew the seam at 1/4". This isn't good for me because I am a perfectionist :) If you do get the seam sewn, it is super hard to get it right side out. While trying to get ours out, the seams ripped. There is an easier way to do it though if you are experienced in sewing. We used a seam ripper and finished it a different way. It is very cute on my daughters doll.
I purchased this set pattern this morning and have just finished my second set! Only about an hour start to finish. I have never worked with Polar Fleece before but I am hooked now! Great results with minimal effort and a real professional finish to it all. I also stitched the scarf closure to about 2 inches into the hood area both sides then turned through that opening before top stitching. Way easy! Love , love, love it!
I was unable to paste the completed hooded scarf and mittens project picture but they turned out very cute. I think next time I will enlarge the mittens about 1/4 inch because they are a tight fit and difficult to put on Molly.
I was one of the testers for this pattern and thought it was a fun and easy project. I used regular polar fleece for the main pieces and coordinating flannel for the linings. There's a really easy way to turn it too when you go to put the scarf and hood together--I simply left it open at most of the hood portion and turned it through that way then top stitched it shut once turned. This is a cute accessory set to her Pullover Half Zip pattern.
