Hat scarf

href="" imageanchor="1" >in-left: 1em;">
Pattern for hat is knit flat and then seamed together

Size 10.5 US needles- for hat
Size 15 US needles - for scarf
Bulky yarn- I used 1 skein (185 yds) of Lion Brand Homespun
* you can use 10.5 needles for the entire project, I just like a thick hat and looser scarf.

CO 60
knit in garter stitch (knit each row) until:

For round hat- 6.5 then start decreases as *K2TOG* repeat to end- 30 stitches
Knit 1 row
*K2TOG* repeat to end- 15 stitches
Knit 1 row
*K2OG* repeat to end 8 stitches
cut about a 15 inch tail and weave through 8 stitches, pull tight and seam up side

For earred hat- 8 inches then do 3 needle bind off and seam side.

Attach scarf by picking up 14 stitches on each side of hat with size 15 needles. I worked on each side at the same time so sides would be the same length. Knit in Garter stitch (knit each row) slipping the first stitch of each row for a finished look. Bind off when you run out of yarn.
