Check Scoodie

Added May 23, 2011

Melbourne, Austr...






I made this scoodie for my sister in law, who has undergone treatment for cancer and has lost all her hair. As it’s getting quite cool now in Melbourne, I went full speed on this project so I could give it to her sooner rather than later. Beanies dont really cover the lower part of your natural hairline, so for a cancer patient that part is left exposed. I like this scoodie pattern because it covers both the head and neck. It can be worn tight or loose around the face, and you can wear the scoodie with the hood down.

I had to get my son to pose, so I cound get a decent shot of the scoodie from behind. That’s when I realised the fabric choice was good for both guys and gals.

The tutorial was very simple to follow, though i added eladtic into the top edge of the hood to cinch it in (for hairloss reasons). There was also a separate back panel in the hood, so I took the opportunity to cut the check fabric on the diagonal for a bit of visual interest.

Lining: Bronze coloured minky fabric which has a one way nap




Spring, Fall, Winter

    A brilliant scoodie for a noble reason! It is very nice of you to care for your sister in law’s needs. My mom underwent treatment for cancer and due to lack to cancer awareness in India, she had little options to cover her head as she lost her hair. Which tutorial did you use? I have a friend for whom I’ld like to make this.
