Outfit: Snow Day and a free knitting pattern



Two weeks ago we had over a foot of snow dumped on us in two days. I can't remember the last time we had so much snow! I spent the day inside, making hot cocoa for the kids and working on craft tutorials. I did have to bundle up and go work on a snow man at one point.

I stashed all of my vintage coats away for the season and since I had been wearing my red hooded coat recently I haven't taken them out of storage yet. I rooted through some totes and found this 60s coat with a beautiful warm fur collar. I love these high collars when its really windy.

I also wore my favorite headband that I knitted from a free 1950s pattern. I wear this headband a few times a week at least and I really should knit some in different colors. Its very wide so I wear it often on bad hair days but its also a cute pin curl scarf.

Sometimes I wear it with a high bun. I really can't get enough of it. I finally had a chance to wear it for its designated ear-warming purpose on this day though and it was very cozy. I might make one and line it with fleece for even more wind proofing.

Did you get any snow where you live?


  1. We have had a lot of frost in Denmark, but only very little snow - and I LOVE snow! :)

  2. It's Summer in Australia at the moment and it doesn't snow where I live so your snow pictures are so lovely to me. You look very cosy in your coat and cute headband. It's gorgeous and amazing that you made it yourself. X
