My friend Devi asked me to make a hat and matching scarf for her.Her only specifications were-
1) The color should be neutral for her to wear to work.
2) The yarn should be very soft.
3)The hat should be round and cover her ears.
I liked the Durango hat pattern on Ravelry.So,that’s the hat that I made for her.And for the scarf,I just made a regular stockinet stitch scarf.Only,I forgot to make the 3 stitch border on both sides.So,naturally the scarf was curling up on the sides.So,I ironed it,lightly and then,made a single crochet border,all around.On hind sight,that was a good idea,because it tied up nicely with the hat.
I present my Durango & Scarf,happily modelled by Devi.
