Winter hat for Norway

This is the hat and scarf I knitted for our trip to Norway,  the first time I wore it on board ship two women liked it,  one wanted to buy it,  she was out of luck I wanted to keep my head warm in the arctic weather.  I did offer them the pattern but neither took it up,  they could not knit.
This hat and scarf was knitted in grey and blue chunky wool,   The hat pattern is called Cable Crush Winter hat by Parsons Design Team,  I got the pattern free from www.allfreeknitting.com.   The scarf I did using the hat pattern and working out the pattern to knit the scarf, and until I had the required length.  you which band of wooI added a fringe at both ends.  I used the same wool for both but I have lost the bands so I cannot tell you which band I used.
I found the pattern easy and it kept my head warm.

Here's a picture of me wearing it at Kirkenes,  you have seen this picture before but it shows the hat and scarf.

I was asked about Russian dolls,  I am in the process of writing up a post about them and the history hopefully I can finish and post it next week.
