I am the crochet instructor at my local Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts store and this week I had to make my samples for the new classes starting in September and October. This was the first hat I had made (and I have made at least 100) that is made from band up and the scarf is made using a double strand. I am very happy with both projects and think that they are both great. I already have 3 people wanting me to make them hats, so if you crochet check them out at your local Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts.
The scarf is class Crochet 102 and the hat is Crochet 202 at your local Jo-Ann's store. Both are made from Red Heart Soft Solids in color 3729 Grape. The button is by Belle for Dritz and is fabulous for this project.
The hat pattern is the Fashionable Flapper Hat by Red Heart and I strongly recommend doing the swatch so you know what adjustments you will need to make.
