I sort of made this pattern up...I had this Sensations Licorice 100% Wool yarn skein and did not know what to do with it...and really you can never have too many hats and scarves in Chicago! So voila. I knit both in the round on size 15 needles. I made some swirling decreases on the hat and switched to dpns to finish it off. I like the little point at the top that reminds me of a Dairy Queen dilly bar. It's one of those evil thick/thin yarns...but it still turned out nicely. The cowl was knit in k2/p2 rib for 10".
