More Hats and Scarves

I'm still working on hats and scarves this week.  I found a hat pattern that works up quickly in HDC and l really like the shape.  I printed the pattern so don't have the link in front of me, but will definitely share it on a future FPP (Free Pattern Friday).

The yarn is Hobby Lobby ILTY (I Love This Yarn).  I'm not sure of the name on the label, but it's a pretty burgundy color with little flecks of other colors, almost like confetti, but not so obvious.  I really like the look in this particular hat.

Got the hat done and had quite a bit of yarn left from the skein, so decided to try a mini scarf or neckwarmer to match.  Well I've started and ripped, started and ripped several times and either it was too wide so didn't have enough yarn to make it long enough, or too narrow where it was plenty long enough for just around the neck, but too skinny.  This is about the fourth attempt, so hopefully it'll be like Mama Bear and work out just right this time.

I plan on listing the hat on Etsy at my regular hat price and throwing in the neckwarmer as a freebie.

What's your work in progress this week?

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

I really like the hat and scarf and thanks for sharing the pattern on Friday. The hat has a very simple yet stylish look to it.

Hi Marie Anne,
The hat and scarf look great. I have only done a few hats but do enjoy them. I understand about the ripping, don't you just hate it when that happens! Hope the rest of your week goes well.
