Here is an easy to sew winter hat and scarf.  This is one of the few projects that I made from fabric not in my stash.  I loved this herringbone pattern.  I used knit fabrics for the exterior and the lining.  The hat and scarf are the perfect addition to any wardrobe in the cold winter months.  I have included the pattern and a complete tutorial with this post and hope that you will give it a try.  Share your results with everyone else in the comments section below.

What You will Need Hat and Scarf

Step 1:  Winter Hat-Cut the Fabrics

The winter hat only requires two pieces.  The hat band is a rectangle that measures 27 x 6.  Cut 1 of the outer fabric and 1 of the lining fabric. The other is a trapazoid that measures 12.5″ along the bottom. 12″on one side, 14″ on the other side and 13.5″ along the top.  Draw the pattern piece out then place it reversed on the fold along the 14″ side.  Cut 1 of the outer fabric and 1 of the lining fabric.

With right sides together sew the back seam together using a 5/8″ seam allowance on both the outer fabric and the inner fabric of the trapzoid piece.  Leave an opening in the lining seam for turning.
