Hat and Scarf Set for Metro Center

This is the first set that I have completed this year. It is going to Scarlet's Metro Center Project. I used and "H" hook and Strata yarn in Passion by Red Heart. I added a scalloped edged to the hat pattern that I will be using throughout this project. It is a favorite now and works up quickly and is also adaptable to changes. It is called a Head Hugger and I have posted this link before.

The scarf was made with the same yarn and hook size. I got the pattern from This And That, Armina, and is called Easy Shell scarf. I did make two changes to this pattern. I made the scarf longer, it is 76 inches long. The other change I made was to add two rounds of sc before I added the shell row. I wanted it a bit wider and that worked for me.

I am still working away at my started projects and will post when I have something new to share.

Ghost, OUT!

Sally, yes she is looking for help but is waiting for them to send her more info and pictures before she posts on her blog. I will post to my blog when she has published the info. In the meantime if you want to make hats and scarves I am sure she will appreciate it.
