Hi all,

This is the first pattern I've posted to craftster.  It's a quick holiday gift: a completely unnecessary scarf and hat made for a wine bottle.  Hope you like it!

Caron Simply Soft in red (MC) and green (CC) (1 skein each)
silver Lion Brand Glitterspun (1 skein)

size 6 dpns (but it's not terribly important, especially for the scarf)

16 sts/4 inces, but again, not too important

CO 8 stitches of MC

Rows 1 & 2: (MC) work 1 x 1 rib for two rows, do not cut
Rows 3 & 4: tie on (CC), work 1 x 1 rib for two rows
Rows 5 & 6: same as rows 1-2, bring yarn up from previous rows without cutting
Rows 7 & 8: (cc), work 1 x 1 rib for two rows, bring yarn up from previous rows without cutting

knit to desired length (I think mine was around 12 inches) BO

weave in ends,

Add fringe using glitterspun.  The instructions here (http://www.deepfriedkudzu.com/2006/02/putting-fringe-on-knit-scarf.html) are pretty good.

Place the scarf on your wine bottle, and determine where you want it to cross.  Then sew the scarf together at that point using MC, as otherwise you will never get the scarf to stay on the bottle.

CO 24 sts in MC.  divide evenly among 3 dps.

Rows 1 & 2: work 2 rows in 1 x 1 rib, do not cut yarn
Rows 3 & 4: tie on CC, work two rows 1 x 1 rib

Rows 5 & 6: switch to MC without cutting yarn, work 2 rows stockinette stitch
Rows 7 & 8: switch to CC without cutting yarn, work 2 rows stockinette stitch

work until hat measures desired length, I think mine was around 3.5 inches but you can make a longer or shorter hat if you'd like.

decrease round: *k2tog* repeat to end of round

repeat decrease round until 6 stitches remain.  cut yarn, pull through live stitches, tie off.

weave in ends

top fringe: this is tricky because the hat is so small.  I found that the best thing to do is cut fringe as you would for the scarf.  Then using a tapestry needle or a crochet hook, pull the pieces halfway through the top of the hat so that each end sticks up out of the top of the hat.  Then, cut a new, longer piece of glitterspun and tie it tightly around the base of the fringe to secure it, and then draw the ends of cut piece up through the fringe you just tied together to make them part of the fringe, and then cut to make all ends the same size.  If that's confusing, I can try to rewrite it in a way that makes sense

The whole project takes an hour, so it makes a good last minute gift!
