peaks island hood
Here is what I've been knitting for the past few weeks. It is the Peaks Island Hood and the pattern is by Ysolda.
It is my second hooded scarf I've made this year.
I think the first one may be be a bit more flattering on me but, let me know what you think or even how you would best wear this one. I'm thinking it would look amazing against a white or cream coat especially but I don't have one.
My Mom made me a little self conscious about the style yesterday. She wasn't intentionally trying to but, you know...and now I'm a bit nervous about wearing it.
There is a lot of moss stitch here which gives it a nice textural quality with a shell pattern on the ends. I bought the yarn at the NY State Sheep and Wool festival from Green Mountain Spinnery and the color is Ice Blue. It's the same wool and color of the original. I paired it with vintage glass buttons. The hood can be worn up or down.
