How to Make an Assassin's Creed Hood
So I finally made my friend her Assassin's Creed style hoodscarf. Done in the colors she wanted and modeled by the fiance. For my first time doing and for a completely made up pattern, it came out very nice. There are a few things I would have done different and I'm going to detail them here so that you can make your own hood and not have to buy one for like 60$ off of etsy because really it only took two hours in total and that's including going out and buying fabric. So ready? Here's how to make your very own Assassin's Creed Altair hood.
First off, this is the rough basic pattern to use.
I made the alterations to it so that the scarf comes more out of the sides. I made mine come straight out the bottom and it just doesn't look quite right. The fabric we used was just jersey knit and it works quite well. It's very warm and easy to use. Note that we got two colors so that this is a reversible hoodscarf.
I cut the middle piece a little long so that when I sewed it to the sides of the hood I had to trim it down a little. You can do this or measure the outside curve of the hood and cut the straight part to fit. Make sure to measure very precisely though. The just sew the pieces together. It's pretty simple. Sew both colors together first before trying to sew the different colors to each other.
Now, obviously you want to sew the hood inside out so the seams are on the inside. Sew everything together except for the very bottom, straight edge of the hood. Then turn it rightside out and sew the bottom edge together. It's going to look a little rough, but since you can wrap the scarf all the way around you, I wouldn't worry too much.
And that's pretty much it. I am assuming some familiarity with sewing hear and left out some of the finer details. If you'd like me to make a more in depth tutorial or simply just make you a hood, leave me a comment. Otherwise, happy sewing!
(This pattern can also work for just the hood part of an Assassin's Creed costume if you just cut off the scarf part.)
