refashion friday // hat & scarf set

Hey y'all!

I found this winter hat, scarf and mitten set on sale last week. I loved the cable designs, plus it was one of my favorite colors - mustard yellow! (I apologize for the wrong coloring in some of the photos. My silly little point and shoot has some defects.)

After a little refashion treatment to the hat and scarf I like them even more. I added a pom pom to the hat and turned the scarf into an infinity scarf! Both are easy refashions. Keep reading to learn how.

We'll start with adding the pom pom.

You will need:
a hat, yarn, scissors, tapestry needle

1. Start wrapping the yarn around all your fingers. The more you wrap the yarn, the fuller your pom pom will be. I wanted mine to be really poufy so I wrapped mine a lot.  2. Slide the yarn off your fingers and tie it in the middle with a long piece of yarn.  3. With the scissors cut through all the loops taking care not cut the longer strands of yarn .  4.Trim into a nice ball shape. This isn't the most professional way to make a pom pom and it will be pretty shaggy at first, but after giving it a trim it will look quite cute!  5. Thread the long strands of yarn into the tapestry needle.  6. Pull the needle through the top of your hat.  6. Knot the yarn on the inside of the hat.

For the scarf you'll need all the same supplies.
This one is really easy! Just bring the ends together (right sides together) and stitch! I just sort of wove my needle in and out of the knitted stitches.

This is a great way to personalize your winter accessories without knitting them yourself! Hope you enjoy this project. :)
