Candy Cane Hat and Scarf

PATTERN NOTE

When the stripes in scarf are 3 or more rows, cut and tie on new color. For less than 3 rows, keep attached and carry to next use. When tying on red yarn, tie on and work stockinette from left side of loom; when tying on white yarn, tie on and work stockinette from right side of loom. This will keep a balance of color change. For the hat, cut yarn at each color change row.
