"Sometimes we all need a little instant gratification, says Szabo. "This hat and scarf combo took one weekend to make, thanks to the chunky yarn and easy cable-and-garter pattern." The colossal scarf, of course, is knitted flat. Once you've done that, you essentially make another one flat until it fits round your head; you then join the ends together and finish the crown working garter stitch in the round. So joining that edge is the only sewing, and if you have your wits about you, you can cast off the edges together and avoid that whole issue. This is fabulous for women or men."
