CROCHET HAT AND INFINITY SCARF SETS


I just love the "homespun yarns" by Lion Brand. They make for warm and cozy winter wear. I decided to take my basic beanie hats and infinity scarfs and make sets for family and friends this Christmas season.

Yarn used was bulky painted desert


This one is a smaller length scarf with a removable flower on the hat. I added the button so that the flower can be removable for those whose prefer not to have it.  

Yarn used was bulky pearls



This is a beautiful fall color combination. I just love these colors.
