I came across some really cool, chunky yarn for $1 today, and I couldn't pass it up! I've already made a really neat looking drop stitch scarf out of the brick red color I got, but I still have a skein of white and a skein of orange. What would be easy to make? There's not much on the skeins, 80 yards I think? Haha I'm not really sure how much. I think I might try a hat, but I've never made one!

Any suggestions?

I'd go with a hat to match the scarf! They're really easy to make - you can make it flat and seam it up or you can gain more experience and use a circular needle or double-point needles and do it in the round. Lots and lots of patterns at www.knittingpatterncentral.com - give it a go!

Here's a couple 2 needle hat patterns if you don't want to try circs, though they may not be for chunky yarn and you'd have to modify the pattern -

Although it might be a little more challenging (not much though!) I'd go with a pair of mittens to match the scarf.  I love how chunky yarn looks in mittens.  Here's a pattern that uses garter stitch http://www.spacesheep.com/Fiber/patterns/ and here's one that's just regular stockette stitch http://www.warmwoolies.org/mittens.html
