The finished design uses a strong reversible diagonal rib to keep the knitting and the scarf/hat interesting. A keyhole in the scarf keeps it from falling off or dragging on the ground during play. The very gradual decreases in the hat give it an elfin look that is cute either stood up on end or flopped over. Best of all, the stretchiness of the overall pattern means that this combo will last several seasons by growing with the child.
