Scarf Set For Daughter
This set is for my daughter. Thanks to two women from Ravelry I was able to get what I needed to finish. The scarf used a lot of yarn, but I love the cables and end result.

It is made from Caron Simply Soft Shadows.
The cap is a free pattern from Ravelry.
The scarf and mittens are a my idea drawn up from different information from here and there.

Thank you.
I love it too and want one for myself. I might have to wait until Christmas is over though. I have more to do for others before I can make for me.

I love that you carried the cables to the back of the hat. I've seen some of these hats with knit and purl for the back.

This is a beautiful set. Love the color, too!

What's inside the brim? Pastic? cardboard? anything?

I cut away the bottom and rim of a large margarine container and used it for the brim.
