So I realize that winter is coming to an end but I just had to make this.  It is well over 6 feet long so it is perfect for wrapping.  BTW I hate that picture of me.  I would like to thank my husband for the back shot of my head...for without him it would not exist. Smiley

LOL, harf.. I want one of those! That's such a great idea, I love two-in-one things. BTW, I like that picture of you, you look all snuggly in your harf!

Hey, you know, thats actually a pretty cool idea... with the shaping for the hat bit... plus now you shall never displace your hat (and as I know all too well, it is hard to lose a scarf)

I also like the dark grey, light grey combo... Smiley

live to love, love to live.

The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return

The hat was a bit pointy at the end so I knitted a half circle and cut out the pointy part.  There probably was a better way of going about it but I was getting impatient and wanted to be able to wear it before all of winter was gone. lol Smiley  I should have mentioned that I actually made this on a knifty knitter.  My husband brought them for me for Valentines Day and wanted to try it out.  But I could have just as easily made it by needle knitting.

I found the idea at ...

I couple of things though if you are going to knit using needles...Make sure that you cast on quite a few stitches.  You need it to be wide to make the fold over.  And second I would definitely stick to making it with two strands of yarn at once because it made it nice a thick. Smiley  Finally I would knit it longer then 75 inches, I thought it made it look nicer but thats just me.  I think I am going to try it without the knifty knitter next time.
