I was able to make this adorable hat and scarf set with just 1 skein of yarn! Have you seen the new Caron Cupcakes? They’re the cutest skeins ever. They even come with a matching pom pom!! *dies*
I was surprised with how much I was able to get out of this little skein. I was planning on just a hat. But then I had quite a bit left over. I decided to add a scarf, so I just kept going until I ran out. I couldn’t be happier with this adorable set!
This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

Fasten off, leave a very long tail for sewing.
Using your long tail and yarn needle, weave the end in and out of the top loops of the last row. Pull the top closed tight, secure the top closed.
Fasten off, weave in the ends.
Add your pom pom.
Row 1: dc in 3rd chain from the hook, dc in each stitch across (15 dc)

NOTE: I repeated row 2 until I ran out of yarn. For me, this was 61 rows
Fasten off, bring both ends together, use your yarn needle and end to whip stitch both ends together.
Fasten off, weave in all the ends.
