Red and black scoodie - part two

Part One

After finishing up the scoodie with the red yarn, it seemed to be missing something.  Digging through my stash, I found some fuzzy novely yarn left over from the book cover I'd made before.  The black edging against the bright red gave it a nice, finished look.

In making the scoodie, this is how it was intended to be worn, with the beginning panel at the top.

This way, the scarf wraps around the face a lot better...

... leaving a smooth, seamless look on the back.

However, we found it worked quite well worn flipped around.

If there's no need to protect the face, the scarf hangs down nicer this way.

It's long enough to still protect the neck.

Of course, with the panel now at the back of the head, the seamless look is lost, if that's at all an issue.

All in all, I'm really happy with this version.
