Before I started crocheting I made lots of knitted projects, big or small. One of those projects was this nice hat that I made as a gift several times along with a matching scarf. I really like the texture of the diagonal rib although I was bored already making the scarf because of the length and the repetitive pattern. All in all, it is a very fun project to knit as a gift for a family member especially now as the winter is approaching fast.
I omitted the hat border from the original pattern and worked only diagonal rib. The scarf it is easy to make, you choose how long and wide it is, work the pattern and add fringe at the end if you want. I am sure that someone dear to you will be happy to receive such a nice gift 🙂
