Make up the hat first,and then use what is left of Boomerang to make the scarf. The finished scarf
may be longer than indicated in the sizing.

back of the picked up st.

Kitchener Stitch:
Set up: Cut your working yarn with about an 8-10" tail.  Thread the working yarn onto a tapestry
needle. Slide all the stitches to the right hand tips of both needles. Hold them together in one
hand. Step 1: Bring threaded needle through first front stitch as if to purl and leave stitch on
Step 2: Bring threaded needle through first
