Yippee, I finished the hat and scarf for my young friend Helen. She knows I made a hat but doens't know it is for her.
Pattern for the hat is at http://knithats.tripod.com/id7.html
I used some very old Bernat fisherman's weight yarn my mother gave me years ago.
I sorta made up the scarf ... I had knit about four inches using the same needle size as for the hat and the texture just seemed too stiff for a little girl. So, I pulled it all out and tried fewer stitches (just 24) on size 11 circular. I made a couple of key mistakes but generally found ways to cover them up, he he.
On to new niece Dakota's Christmas stocking.
