Oh so pretty in purple! This lacy hat and scarf set will make someone very happy, as well as warm and pretty. One lacy end of the scarf just has to be pulled through the slit near the other end to stay on and flare out in a face-flattering little tie effect, and the bands of lace knitting on the hat just about match, just not in a wavy pattern. Keeps your head and neck warm during that transitional weather, or during winter in a warmer climate such as the one I happen to live in. Beautiful dark purple color, smooth yarn in a 50/50% blend of soft merino wool and acrylic microfiber, it is soft, touchable, and hand washable.
