Alright, so I posted these on the completed projects board and got zero response, so I am hoping to get some from my fellow SnB craftsters!    I started to make the Umbilical Cord hat for my little cousin (2.5 years old).   With the leftover yarn I made a matching windy city scarf  because i figured that it would be good for kids whose scarfs always fall off.  So here we go.

A pic of the set

and here is the hat alone

and from the top

and the hole detail that the other end of the scarf passes through.

The scarf is a little weird because i changed the pattern to match the one on the hat, so it ended up rolling in on itself, but the 2.5 year old doesn't seem to mind! 

Also i made the hat a little too large for him and so threaded elastic trhought the bottom roll up and made a kind of mushroom-ish hat.  i'll post the pics of him and his hat and scarf as soon as i can.

thanks for looking!  and any comments are appreciated!

I like the colors too!  And I wouldn't worry about the first post not getting responses - many people look at recent with pics and the main page to look at projects.  A post with links just doesn't show up.  My first post was the same way. 

Keep up the good work!

I stumbled in here from the Recent With Pics listing. I just wanted to say that I've never seen a scarf like that and I think it's awesome! Plus, I love your coordinating set. I know knitting basics, but haven't done much other than wash cloths, so I'm easily impressed. :-)  Kinda like mittens on a string, but better. Hehehe...

That is really cute. I love the colors. And I gotta tell ya, I like the rolling of the edge on a kids scarf. I think it makes it less serious, for lack of a better word. And a narrow scarf, I would think, would be better for little hands to get around.

I love the color combo!  I have never heard of a "Windy City" scarf, either, but that's the best idea ever!  I'd love one of those for each of my kids - maybe their scarves would actually stay on that way.
