My Big Fat Hat and Scarf

Yarn:  Rowan Big Wool
Needles:  13 or 15--not sure.
Comments:  I added the tassle, as the hat seemed so black and so plain.
 Love the Big Wool.  You can knit a hat in a day, a scarf in two.
 The scarf is black and plain, too.

Here's the "recipe" for my scarf:

Size 13 needles
2 skeins Rowan Big Wool
Gauge: 2.5/inch

Cast on 16 stitches.

Slipping the first stitch of each row as if to purl, Knit 3 rows.

Row 4: Sl 1 as if to purl, K2, K10, K3.
Row 5: Sl 1 as if to purl, K2, P10, K3.

Repeat rows 4 and 5 until the desired length or you are almost out of yarn, leaving enough for the last 3 rows and the bind off.

Knit 3 rows.

Bind off.  Wear.  Stay warm.

Fun hat and scarf. The chunky wool looks so warm and cozy. Won't be long and winter will be here!
