As an avid knitter, I am always looking for new projects to make and often like to make gifts for everyone in my family. This hat and scarf set would make a great gift for the men in my life! The instructions are clear and should be easy to follow.

It says Crochet on Pinterest Page , you open it and it is a knitt

Hi there! So sorry for the inconvenience! If the specific pin is on our board, let me know and I will take it down. Unfortunately if someone else pinned it and called it crochet, there's not much we can do. Feel free to comment on the pin as well and let that person know it is actually knit! I hope this helps! -Editor of FaveCrafts

Loved this hat pattern, it was very easy to understand and make, as I am still a novice at knitting. I decided to alternate colours, but other than that I followed the pattern exactly and it came out very nice.

My husband got a new coat recently and asked me today if I would knit him a matching hat! This looks perfect if I can just get it to print off!!

I love this one. It's easy and quick. I knit a lot for charity and this hat is perfect. It's got the right amount of stretch to it so just about anyone can wear it.
