Firstly I made The Skinny:
I used 3 fat quarters that I absolutely love but had no specific plans for. One was from the stale stash swap with the fabulous Danny and the other two are Swallow Skies in Storm and Little Bits in Honey from 'The Birds and The Bees' by Tula Pink.

The pattern is so well written and it took hardly any time at all so I went straight on to The Hood:
I am so super happy with both of my scarves and they really make me smile when I wear them! I can not recommend this pattern enough, I absolutely give it 5 stars! A beginner could easily make these scarves and an accomplished sewer would find so many great options with it... I'm totally thinking some embroidery would make a nice addition too! You don't even need a sewing machine if you wanted to hand sew them. I used a machine for all the seams except the final closing, which I hand sewed using a ladder stitch.
Thank you so much for letting me test the pattern Rebecca! My wardrobe thanks you too - they add a great pop of colour :)
Here's some outtakes:
I will totally be making more of these and they will be great to give as Christmas presents.
