I get cold in the Fall and Winter. So when knitting I try to think of an item I would feel toasty warm in. I also like lots of color which is why I love NORO yarns. This scarf is hand knitted in a wide width to curl around your neck and cris-cross in front of you., The hat is knitted then felted, bottom edge folds up to make a double thickness over your ears. Both using NORO worsted 100% wool yarn. Thick, soft, warm deep, rich bands of Color. I'm sure you will love it.
