To get started, choose if you'd like to make the adult or child sized hooded scarf and print the PDF of the pattern pieces:
- Adult size pattern
- Child size pattern

For both sizes, there are four pattern pieces that will print on four pieces of 8 1/2" x 11" paper. The four pattern pieces make up the shape of the hood.

Cut out the four pattern pieces and tape them together matching up the correct sides.

Lay the taped together hood pattern on the fabric and trace the shape with an air erase marker.

Make sure to include the triangle notch as it will show where to stop sewing later.

Starting from the bottom edge of the hood, draw a 29" x 10 3/8" rectangle with an air erase pen for the adult size.

Draw a 24" x 8 3/8" rectangle for the child size.

This will be the scarf.

Next, it's time to sew the hood.

Pin the two fleece pieces together, and sew a 1/2" seam from the top corner and around the curve.

Stop when you get to the triangle notch, and turn the hood right side out.

Now it's time to prepare for the embroidery.

A template, or printout of a design, is an excellent tool to help with placement.

Print a template of the design from your embroidery software.

If you do not have embroidery software, Wilcom's TrueSizer is a free program to use.

Place your template on the right side of one of the scarf ends, centered so the embroidery is 6" from the bottom for the adult size or 5" for the child size.

Mark the center point and vertical and horizontal axis lines.

Hoop the fleece with one piece of water soluble stabilizer on the backside of the fabric and one piece on top.

Spray the back piece of the stabilizer with a small amount of temporary adhesive to keep the fabric from shifting while embroidering.

The stabilizer on top helps to keep the stitches from sinking in to the fabric.

Attach the hoop to the machine and load the design.

Move the hoop so that the needle is directly aligned with the center point on the fabric.

Embroider the design. A size 11 or 75/11 embroidery needle is an excellent choice for fleece. Choosing lighter designs will help the scarf to drape beautifully.

When the design has finished sewing, trim away the excess stabilizer 1/2" around the embroidery.

To add the fringe to the scarf, first measure and mark 5" up along each side starting at the bottom corners for the adult size (4" for the child size).

Draw lines connecting the marks and cut the fabric along the lines.

Make a mark every 1" along the line and the bottom edge of the scarf.

Draw vertical lines between each of the corresponding marks, and cut along those lines to create the fringe. Repeat for both sides
