Knitted Slouchy Hat and Scarf - Unisex

Sometimes you can be your best advocate in marketing your creations by wearing what you knitted or crocheted. I was approached already on numerous times about knitting or crocheting something for someone just because I wore my HandMade "stuff". My latest encounter with such person was: "Can you, please, knit a hat and a scarf similar to yours for a man?" I had some free time, so I could do it. And while I was knitting on many occasions I watched "Lilyhammer" show - so I shall call this hat and scarf "Lilyhammer Hat and Scarf". It resonates with the cold environment, although it doesn't have any fair isle designs. But... I realized that it can actually be unisex.

And again, I decided to share my pattern (which I am writing as I knit this hat and scarf) with all of you, my dear and faithful following. Thank you all for being my invisible knitting/crocheting friends.

Happy Holidays and Peace on Earth. Now, go and knit some scarfs and hats :-)
