Chunky Keyhole Scarf and Slouchy Hat

Here we have a pattern for a deliciously chunky and cosy keyhole scarf with a slouchy hat to match.

  

The scarf can be worn with the end through the "keyhole" as normal, as a straight scarf, or wrapped around the neck and tucked in like a cowl.





Easily and quickly worked (you know I like easy and quick!), most people can make this set in a couple of evenings.
