I love your snowflake bulky knit pattern for a hat. I made the hat and it turned out terrific. It was my first time knitting a hat. I tried to make a matching scarf to go with it but it kept curling. Do you have a scarf pattern or any suggestions?

Hi. I suggest you knitting edges in garter stitch as i did for this cable headband It means that you can knit 5-6 stitches at the beginning and 5-6 sts at the ends. Knit the main pattern in the center. On the wrong side repeat the same, knit 5-6 sts at the beginning and at the end. It can be always more than 5-6 sts. Let me know if it worked
