This is an adult pattern and it's made to fit an adult although I have a child is modelling my effort. I've got a thing for red this winter.....I've also just finished some wrist warmers in red which are kinda cute (for me this time).
Wool used: Moda Vera Shiver 100% acrylic
Knitting Needles: 9mm & 10mm
Did I have problems with the pattern?
Yes I did....it was all my own doing by not using the wool to the pattern or doubling the thread. Plus I don't do tension guages...I'm knitting in acrylic too so I changed the pattern slightly to fit.
For the Hood: I cast on 58 stitches and used size 9 needles.
For the scarf: I cast on 20 stitches and used a size 10 needle, then changed back to 9 when attaching the hood
For the back seam: I used a 3 needle bind of. The bind off seam was shown on the inside of the hood
Would I knit this pattern again? Yes....because it was an easy pattern once you worked out the fit. Next time though I would use 100% wool, mainly because I prefer knitting in wool and it is much warmer fibre...

one charged a fee to pose....Very wise child,
holiday pocket money solved!
