Splash-Deco-Ribbon scarf

Detail of scarf close-up

lengthwise knit scarf & 2-needle hat : free knitting pattern

Splash and Deco-Ribbon

1-100 gr. ball of Splash (here #9219 strawberry soda)
1-50 gr. ball of Deco-Ribbon (here #7239 picnic)

For Scarf:
Size 15 - 26" circular CPY Bamboo needles
For Hat (knit on 2 needles, not in the round):
Size 11 - 9" or 12" SP CPY Bamboo needles

The scarf is knit lengthwise in garter st (knit all rows). The hat is knit with 1/1 ribbing on 2 needles.
Note: If you only plan to knit the scarf and not the hat, follow the same scarf instructions, but cast on 115 sts instead of 90 since you will be able to make a longer scarf if you don't use yarn for the hat.

Tip: If you are knitting the hat, knit it first and then use the remaining yarn for the scarf.
