Shannon's hat and scarf

Shannon (my son's friend) asked me for a floppy hat made out of the same yarn I used for Dona's Ruana. I couldn't find a pattern I liked so I made it up as I went.

Size 11 needles with a cast on of 70. Two inches of ribbing and then I increased it to 84 stitches. The yarn was so pretty I didn't think it needed a pattern so I knit all rounds. 6 inches later I started the decrease. She looked so cute in the hat I offered to make her a scarf to match. 24 stitches, size 11 needles, garter stitch and fringe. She loves it and told me it was the most beautiful set she'd ever seen. You can't ask for anything better than that especially since both were so easy.
