Help with scarf & hat set - yarn & pattern
Hi all

I'm fairly new to knitting and have recently made my first scarf, my first jacket (still to assemble as I need a yarn needle!) and an 'extreme knitting' scarf with big needles and 4 balls of wool.

For my next project, I want to make a statement scarf and matching hat - I want the scarf to be HUGE like this:

My questions are:
Can someone recommend a really soft super chunky wool for this - I really like Sirdar Indie but want something either one colour or slightly marled?

Can someone suggest a pattern for a large scarf like this? Really I just want an idea of how wide and how long it should be to make sure the proportions are right.

I'd also like a tightly fitting hat pattern - like a pull-on beanie that's not baggy. Any suggestions?

One last thing - the knitting kit I got for my last scarf contained some gorgeously soft 'eyelash' yarn - I think that's the word (very fine, stretch yarn with lots of fine strands coming off it). I don't usually like this type of thing but this is lovely because it's so fine and soft, and the strands aren't too long. I have no idea what make or type of wool this is - can anyone suggest anything similar?

Thanks so much - this place is fantastic, my knitting has come on so much since I joined!
