'Scoodie' comes from the combination of the words scarf and hoodie and it is taking the world by storm! Magdalena Melzer and Anne Thiemeyer have created 20 scoodie designs that are not only fabulous fashion accessories, but their chunky crocheted yarns will also keep both your neck and head wonderfully warm and cozy.
The projects range from the classy and chic to the more casual and creative. With so much variety to choose from, you're sure to find the right style to suit you. There are only two sizes of crochet hook required for every design in the book; and all the projects are graded by difficulty, meaning that, no matter what your crochet ability is, there really is something for everyone. There is even a helpful step-by-step basic crochet guide and techniques for making pom-poms and tassels.
As a child, Magdalena Melzer loved to spend hours sewing colourful buttons and developing her love for craft and creativity. When her own children arrived, Magdalena rediscovered crocheting again and the magic of brightly coloured yarns. In 2012, she launched her own label, Curlyz, a small enterprise with a grand passion for designing and crocheting using diverse colour combinations. In every free moment, you can be sure to find her crocheting between mountains of wool, surrounded by many colourful crochet creations. She lives in Stuttgart, Germany.
Anne Thiemeyer’s love of needlework began when she was a child when her aunt taught her crocheting, knitting and embroidery. Today she has turned her hobby into a career. After completing her studies in textile design, she worked in various editorial departments, while specialising in her favourite craft crochet. Since 2000, Anne has worked as a freelance designer and consultant for various publishers and yarn suppliers. She lives in Stuttgart, Germany.
