Premier Yarns Knit for Kids Striped Hat & Scarf

Join A.C. Moore, World Vision, and Premier Yarns to wrap the world in warmth! We invite you to knit this adorable hat and scarf set for your child or for a child in need -- either way, you're helping to make a difference. World Vision's Knit for Kids program provides warmth and comfort to children living in poverty across the world. You can donate this hat, or any hand-made item, to Knit for Kids at all A.C. Moore locations. Premier Yarns is also generously donating a percentage of all Knit for Kids yarn sales to World Vision's international development and relief work. Stop in today and see the manager for more information. Click here for more details and projects.

Use a gauge of 15 Esc x 10 rows to crochet a scarf that measures 4" wide x 62" long and a hat that has a circumference of 20" and a height of 7". Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
