Happy Mother's Day!!!
One hat-4 ways to wear it with matching scarf!
Pattern: My own
Yarn: (Hat and scarf)
Plymouth Sara Superwash (2 skeins)
Cascade 220 Superwash (2 skeins)
If you would like the hat pattern, leave a comment on this post and I'll e-mail it to you.
The hat is reversible and can be worn with the "brim" turned up. It's actually a tube with the appropriate increases and decreases at the ends and the hat is as soft as can be.
The hat and scarf will be donated to a"Head Start" child in Rhode Island. My daughter used to be director of the program and collects hats and mittens for the organization. I will be knitting a pair of mittens for this set.
I used the Jared Flood Nora scarf pattern (Google it) for this project but cast on 29 stitches instead. The edge is lovely and a great way to carry alternating yarn without it showing.
