Hooded scarf = harf

A harf is a fitted hood that fits closely to the head so that there is nowhere for the cold winter winds to come in. The scarf is actually more of a cowl in that it is an attached loop to the hood that you twist and loop over your head, holding the hood snugly (but comfortably) in place, locking in the warmth and locking out out the cold. The harf is made to be quite stretchy so that it really conforms to your head.

Without the pompom it is ideal for wearing underneath a helmet.

NOTE: Worsted weight yarn is specified but I have also knit this pattern using bulky weight yarn and it worked great.
