2 FOs- earflap hat and a scarf
This is my first fair isle/ stranded knitting project. It was a lot of fun and knit up rather easily. I do not like where the earflaps are placed though. If I were to knit it again I would move them up a bit.

There was also an error ( I assume) in the first chart (for the earflaps). There are 19 stitches and the chart is a 6 stitch repeat, which left an extra stitch. I ended up knitting it in MC.

This scarf only has 4 rows to repeat! It was so quick to knit up and I love it! Its so soft and squishy.

Nice little scarf and I love the hat. The colors look so good together. My first impression was that the dark was brown but maybe it is black. It is odd how colors play against each other. On the wide green stripe the waves look brown. The designs look brown on the yellow as well, but at the top and on the earflaps the dark looks black. Is there brown and black or is it all the same?
