Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

My 4 1/2 year old granddaughter asked me if I would make her a hat in pink. She asked me what else I could make for her. She suggested boots! LOL! I told her I couldn't make boots, but I could knit her a scarf to go with her hat. She loved that idea! She is in pre-ballet class, and I used ballet as my inspiration for the design because I think the ruffles look like tutus. I also made her younger sister a similar adorable set.

The perfect yarn for this project is Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic. The yarn is double-stranded for the majority of the hat (not the ruffle). The scarf is not double-stranded, but it is also knit in the round, so it is doubly thick as well.

2-12-2015: The ruffle's round 7 should really be round 6 and has been corrected.
