Candy Cane Hat and Metro Scarf | Free Pattern Link and Info

This is me and the NVO
(or is this The NVO and I???)
in the first two crocheted projects completed in 2020!

We don't like photos of ourselves but we live in a small town in winter sooooooo...
this was our only option.
(Thank goodness for filters. πŸ˜‰)
🍬Candy Cane Hat 🍬                                          πŸ’™ Metro Scarf πŸ’™

The Metro Scarf

Designer: Astri Elisabeth
Pattern: *Alternating Single Crochet
Yarn: Scheepjes Metropolis
(Click here for yarn.)

It's simple to make:
Row 1: sc, ch1
Rows 2-?: ch1, sc 
Each single crochet is worked in the chain space
 from the previous row. Make it as wide and long as you would like. Then add a little fringe to the edges.
*If you are new to crochet, detailed directions can be found in the
"365 Crochet Stitches a Year" Perpetual Calendar
 by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss  - "Alternating Single Crochet", March 16
I love how this stitch worked up with this yarn.

The Candy Cane Hat
Designer: Melanie Ham
Pattern: Absolute Beginner Crochet Hat with *modification
(Click here for the free pattern.)
Yarn: Trysil - Superwash Rent Ullgarn
(100% Wool Superwash)

*Instead of a pom-pom the hat was crocheted longer and 
then the top was tied into a ball by wrapping two strands of yarn
 a couple of inches from the top, tying and weaving in the ends.
 It's still long enough to fold up to make sure the ears
 are completely covered in a double layer too. 
We have many below zero days here in Wyoming...brrrrrrrr...
and this wool hat is just the ticket!

Please note the NVO is wearing the same hat as I am.
His is shorter, no pom-pom/ball and it's black. πŸ˜‰

Happy new beginnings and
