Scarf - Due to the rib pulling in you will
need to press the scarf very carefully
on the WS to the width stated in
measurements. Using a slightly damp
cloth and warm iron, press very lightly
on WS, noting not to flatten rib. Using
yarn needle, darn in ends.
If desired, using remaining yarn attach
a fringe to cast on and cast/bound off
edges of scarf.
Hat - DO NOT PRESS. Using yarn
needle, darn in ends. Using yarn needle
and mattress st seam, join back seam.
