LOOM KNIT SANTA SCARF & HAT

Easy Childs Loom Knit Santa Hat & Scarf Set

Original Hat Pattern is by Ravelry & Scarf Pattern is mine!

     I originally spotted this cute hat on Pinterest.  Here's the Link http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ho-ho-hat-3 but was disappointed that it was a needle knitting pattern.  I did my best to convert it to the loom and thought it came out pretty close!  Since this was a gift for my nephew, I wanted to make it a complete set and came up with this Loom Knit Scarf Pattern.  For safety, I made the scarf just long enough to go around the neck and lay inside the coat.  It is not meant to wrap around the neck.  I'm thrilled with how the scarf came out and feel it's a nice match to the hat!
