Farrow Rib Hat and Scarf Set

A new pattern! It feels good to get this one published. There have been many people who have made the scarf I originally designed last year. Several of their scarves were made as Christmas gifts.
I decided it would be a good thing to create a pattern for a matching hat. The hat was more difficult to design, as I had to convert the stitch pattern for knitting in the round, and I wanted to provide 5 sizes.
As always, thanks go to Amanda for being a terrific model.
The PDF download of the pattern is available on the right hand side of this page, for $3.
Here are the details:
This hat and scarf set makes a perfect holiday gift for man or woman.
-The simple stitch pattern is easy to memorize for knitting on the go.
- Most hats will require less than one skein of yarn.
-Written for five sizes (small to 2X)
-With the forgiving rib pattern, gauge is not crucial to a perfect fit.

Medium Hat (Light Blue) required less than 109 yards (one skein) of Wisdom Poems color #558
Small scarf required slightly more than one skein (abut 120 yards) of the Wisdom yarn
2XL hat with deep brim (darker blue) required slightly more than 216 yards (more than one skein) Malabrigo worsted in Oceanos.
The long scarf required almost 2 skeins (about 400 yards) of the Malabrigo
