This knit beanie and scarf was quick and easy with Plymouth Encore Chunky, and I love that vibrant koolaid-blue color!
This hat is just a plain knit beanie using a 1x1 rib. The scarf is the basketweave pattern based on 4 k 4 p repeat across 6 rows. i cast on 22 stitches and slipped the first stitch to give it a more finished edge.
1 1/2 skeins chunky yarn
Size 10 circular needle
Size 10 double-point
Time: hat 2 hrs, scarf 4 hrs
