My inlaws hold a Christmas bash every year. Part of the deal is that in exchange for some great food, you bring some kind of outdoor wearable: gloves, scarves, hats, etc. This year I decided to cast on and work my way through part of my yarn stash.

DSC_0483 Hat to go with the cowl. I ended up not being a huge fan of the pattern. It’s slightly slouchy and looks more impressive on the head than on the table.

The scarf & matching hat were made from 1 skein of Homespun multicolor (which one it was I don’t know… such is the casualty of a yarn stash). I made up the patterns as I went along for both of them. The hat is mostly just double-crochet until the edging.


Looped Scarf Pattern


Row 1: Cast on 17. Turn. Skip first stitch and single crochet (SC) in each stitch (16 stitches.).

Row 2: Chain 4. Counts as first triple crochet (TC). TC in each SC. (16 stitches)

Row 3: Chain 2. Counts as first SC. SC in each TC. (16 stitches)

Row 4: Chain 4. Counts as first triple crochet (TC). TC in each SC. (16 stitches)

Row 5: Chain 2. Counts as first SC. SC in each TC. (16 stitches)

Row 6: Chain 3. Counts as first DC. DC in each SC. (16 stitches)

Row 7 – 8: Chain 3. Counts as first DC. DC in each DC. (16 stitches)

Row 9: Chain 2. Counts as first SC. SC in each DC. (16 stitches).


Repeat rows 2 – 9 two more times. For finishing, fold scarf in half. Match opposite corners (so, the bottom of one side meets the top of the other side). This will give you the twist in the scarf. If you don’t want the twist, simply match corners. Stitch sides together.


Little Red Riding Hood Beret


The second hat is a pattern that I’ve made a few times from Ravelry called the Little Red Riding Hood Beret. It’s such a classy hat!
