    Love your patterns, thanks for sharing! I would love to see a pattern of a hat that has the scarf attached. I’m not sure if they have a name for them. I have seen a couple patterns but I wasn’t crazy about how they looked. Hope that makes sense.

      Oh yes! What a fun idea! I don’t know what those are called either, but I’d love to dream one up.

      I’ll add it to the list. 😉

      You’re welcome, Sally! I love when I can sit down on the couch and not get up until I’ve finished an entire project. Feels great, doesn’t it!?
