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.

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
