Snowtracks Cap and Scarf Custom Order

Recently I had a custom order request for the Snowtracks Cap and Scarf that I have in my Etsy shop with a few modifications.  I thought others would be interested to see the finished hat and scarf so here they are.  (Sorry about the dark picture.  The weather hasn't been cooperating lately and this was about the best lighting I could get before I shipped them out.)

The customer requested 100% wool with the cap in red with a rolled-up brim and the scarf in natural.  I had quite the time trying to find a reasonably-priced wool yarn that came in both red and natural.  What I found and ended up using is Patons Classic Wool.  I used 1 ball in Bright Red for the hat and about 1 1/2 balls in Aran for the scarf.

If you'd like to make these yourself you can find the Snowtracks Cap pattern here and the Snowtracks Scarf pattern on my blog here.  I also welcome custom orders.  If you'd like either the cap, scarf, or both made for you please contact me and I'll be happy to work with you to create something beautiful for you.  These make great gifts!  Be sure to order early, since the busy (or should I say *crazy*) Holiday crafting season is starting. :)
