I wanted a really, really warm head and neck covering for my daughter who lives in Manhattan. No car, walk everywhere, as New Yorkers do - Brrrr! So I made up this hood/scarf using Cascade Eco Cloud and Cascade Cloud. This is incredibly warm, soft and squishy yarn. The hood part is oversized and the 2x2 rib part extends out in front of your face, blocking wind and snow. The scarf ends are very long and can be wrapped around.
