Finished Zig Zag




So, here we have the finished product. Looks kind of Scandinavian to me. As you can see, I decided to include the pom poms - for 2 reasons: 1. more fun for a teenager; 2. because I used acrylic yarn, I wouldn't be able to block the end peaks of the scarf effectively - the weight of pom poms will help keep the peaks more defined.
The colours on the photo still did not come out that great, sorry.

Re. hat: I found the free pattern here:

    Awesome job with making a hat that matches the scarf. I have often thought they should come out with a 'Hat Style' book and ask all the contributors to 'Scarf Style' to come up with a hat pattern that matches the scarf pattern they contributed. Wouldn't that be fun?

    Yes, that WOULD be fun. I'd love to see what people would come up with.
