Comfort Hood Balaclava Hat PDF sewing pattern

This sewing project is meant to keep you warm in winter. It’s a combination of a hood, a high collar and what pretty much qualifies as a breast plate. (Btw, it's unisex and I think it'll will make for a perfect Xmas present!)

Seam allowances are included: 1 cm everywhere.

Video tutorial only, no illustrated PDF instructions

Can't wait to see your creations!

• Shell fabric: the pattern was made with a slightly elastic base fabric, which is something to observe if your head is big. Note that to sew the project following method 2 (see chapters under the video tutorial on Youtube), it’s imperative to have at least one fabric, either the shell or the lining, fairly stretchy.
If your head is around 55-56 cm and you’re not interested in method 2, you can use non stretchy fabrics.
Sweat, fleece, velvet, padded fabric, denim, nylon, knit...
- yardage for a 150 cm large fabric : 45 cm
- yardage for a 60" large fabric: 18"

• Lining: my sample is lined with cotton jersey/5% lycra, but you may want to not line it, or to line it with fleece, sherpa, or other thick and cosy fabrics. Pick a stretchy fabric if you’re interested in method 2 (see tutorial on Youtube).
- yardage for a 150 cm large fabric : 45 cm
- yardage for a 60" large fabric: 18"

• Cord: extensible or not. 130 cm / 51" long. Cord stopper optional.

• Bias or webbing tape (if method 3 - see video tutorial) 150 cm / 60" long

One adult size, head circumference: 55-59 cm // 211/4-231/4 in

Easy! I give you 3 ways of finishing the Comfort Hood, one of the methods, the burrito one, is difficult (see chapters under the youtube video).
